Of all the things I miss the most are the books we left in Guyana. I have been trying to replace books that I grew up reading and which were formidable in my education. My library includes Black Midas, The Young Warriors, Miguel Street, Backfire and a host of books about Guyana. I hope I can instill my love of reading in my son. Most particularly, the ones about Guyana so he can learn about his heritage and ancestry.

Anta, when is that function happening in Scarberia? Perhaps if you could pick up one of those books for me I would gladly cross your palm in gold..oops I meant silver.

Not sure if it will happen this year. The man have some other pressing issues. But you can send me the gold by UPS.

I don't read as much as I used to but my son loves to read. To him, a library is like a candy store.

I was like your son when I was growing up in Guyana.

Good for you Leonora. Reading has always been our window to the world.

 

There is a place called Lincoln Road Mall in South Beach where there are lots of shops and restaurants. One evening when we were down there, my wife and daughter went into Victoria's Secrets and my son and I stayed outside. Eventually he realized that there was a nearby bookstore nd asked me to take him to it. Once he got in there, he began behaving like it was the greatest thing he has ever seen. Granted, they had their themes separated by rooms as shown in the picture below from same bookstore but I couldn't appreciate it as he was doing. After we reunited with my wife and daughter, he told then that they have to see this amazing bookstore and we went back to it.

You got a good son and an avid reader, Ksaz.

During high school breaks while classmates were playing hanky panky and having romances, poor me was in the library absorbed in books on philosophy, psychology, etc.    So scared of boys, didn't have a boyfriend until I was 23. Spouse and I are avid readers but couldn't get our son to read novels; he studied his school books and excelled in those. My basement is filled with books and it's probably a fire hazard.

Quite an interesting cover there Sir Vic. Yin yang sign coupled with a provocative looking lady dressed in red, enjoying a brew and a smoke. I hope the book has more hot hot pictures on the inside...especially in braille.

I shall commission Sir Vic to write a book especially for you.

Banna seriously,he should have parts of that binnie in braille, might work well. I wonder what made him use the yin yang sign on the table..nothing against that. I have items using that sign. Guitar strap..ear ring..my favourite ring..one hanging on my car's rear view window.

For all things negative there is a positive.

That particular novel consists of a series of short stories that shows the lives of people - their desires, ambitions, fears, etc. - who are otherwise shunned are not much different from lives of others except that they have a much more intense dose of negative circumstances to contend with. The symbol is supposed to hint that where we see good and bad, there are only people trying to do the best they can with whatever cards they're dealt.

I had to be good. My father knew a couple of my teachers. I remember one day he gave a lift to my English teacher and I was sweating like a pig in the back seat. By the way, congratulations both on the job you did raising your son and on his accomplishments.

Leonora, my school days were different. I was more interested in the hanky panky stuff.

My son has a great passion for reading and his books are not just a few pages. He has been in AR since the second grade I believe. It has really helped him with his knowledge base. I do hope he keeps it up.
