    Umm…

    6 The Bible x
    59 The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night – Mark Haddon x
    61 Of Mice and Men – John Steinbeck x

    :-/

    The latter and the former during my school years. The middle one my own choice, back in… 2004, I think?

    The depressing thing is that I actually LOVE reading, it’s just that it mentally exhausts me for some reason. If I read in bed, I only get through a few sentences before falling asleep, an act which usually takes up to half an hour. And if I do it whilst NOT lying in bed, then I start to feel really tired and worn out, and then I either go to bed or start feeling really depressed.

    It’s a bit of a shame as, like I say, I do love reading.

    If I may brag slightly, I read most of these books before I turned 12… Tolstoy was by far the most difficult reading at that age.
