The Secret of Beedle The Bard?

Tales of Beedle The Bard and The Secrets

I did mention on my previous post that I’m going to start reading again this year, so I got myself two books yesterday, The Tales of Beedle The Bard by J. K. Rowling and The Secret by Rhonda Byrne.

Yes, I’m a Potterphiliac, the moment I knew from Azlina’s blog that the book was out, I practically jumped off my seats. It’s already here! Should have checked MuggleNet more frequently. Oh did you know that MuggleNet have their own online community going on? Just like the Facebook I reckoned. Anyway, to those Muggle out there, this book is somewhat similar to Fairy Tales story to us Muggle; this book is for the Wizarding world. One of the fairy tales was mentioned in The Deadly Hallows. This book had J. K. Rowling’s very own hand drawn illustration. I haven’t started reading it just yet, but I do know this, it was published in support of Children’s High Level Group (CHGL) charity which was set up in 2005. I know I’m going to love this book. When you already immersed in Harry Potter’s series, who doesn’t?

I have a lot of good comment from a few friends whom have read The Secrets; they say it’s very inspiring. I need to get inspired myself. I took a peek and it is really good book to read. But I think I’ll finish my Potter book first.

I know I can get Beedle The Bard at Times Bookstore but I’m not to sure about The Secret. I remember last year when everyone want to buy the book. It was sold out fast. Since I’m getting a book there I might as well check if they have it. If its not there then I’ll have to try and get it at Amazon.com. To my surprise, they have a few copies in the store. I instantly grab it. But I can’t seem to find The Golden Compass series. Should have bought last year when I saw the Trilogy at Times. Worst come to worst, I’ll get it from Amazon.

 

The Geek

A so called geek who resides at North Borneo, in a not so little city anymore, formerly known as Api-Api to the locals, Jesselton to the colonialist. This geek is a Civil Engineer by profession, who have lots of ideas popping up while traveling, who will write whatever popped up in his mind and hopping the reader would not be so judgmental toward his writings. This geek is also a computer & internet junkie who love outdoor, which is pretty much contradicting to each other doesn’t it? This geek is good at almost everything but a master of none (read about this somewhere). People may perceive him as a very quiet, describe as phlegmatic person, yet he is quite a chatterbox to those whom he is really close or comfortable with. This geek thinks anime chicks are way cooler than a real chick hence why he also likes to watch it (not the chicks, but the anime). Not to be mistaken as watching a cartoon, anime to this geek and to most of anime follower are animation that are created and produce by the Japanese.

    reading is good, what.. – so keep reading.

    i’ve read the secret some time ago. quite a good read but not the other book – is it any good?

    if u r a sucker (pardon the lang..hehe) for children’s book, i would highly suggest u to read the tale of despereaux by kate dicamillo with all four books inside. Times should have them. n the movie hits cinema in march.

    “being the story of a mouse, a princess, some soup and a spool of thread…”

    go figure.
