    For years I would read regularly. But lately I've been going through a strange phase where books are not holding my attention. I am mentally distracted. Several books have piled up on my nightstand and dresser, a few of which I had started reading and then quit...

    My reading list includes...

    The Bell Jar (almost done)
    The Oxygen Thief (Started reading it. Liked it. Still a long ways from completion)
    The Dinner (Started reading. Found it interesting. The whole book centers around one meal at a restaurant. Need to finish)

    Recently got Anna Karenina. I've always walked away from this novel for years. But for the first time I decided to give it a go. It's considered one of the greatest works of literature and so I want exposure to it.

    It is my goal to finish one of them within the next two weeks. Mostly likely The Dinner.

      I know what you mean when books aren't holding enough attention! I, myself, finally have the time (but not for long) and gained interest to start reading again. Hope to see you back here in two weeks upon the completion of The Dinner!

          پڑھنا لکھنا تو ہم جانتے نہیں
          ایک خواہش تھی کہ پڑھ لیں
          وہ چہرہ کبھی
          اتنی دیر تلک کہ
          حفظ کر لیں
          پھر یو ھوا نظریں آنکھوں تک گئیں
          اور زندگی تھم گئی
          خواہشیں رہ گئیں
          اور ہم ڈوب گئے

              Lekhna PaRhna to hum jante nahein
              Aik khwahish thi keh paRh lain
              Woh Cehra kabhi
              etni dair talak keh
              Hafiz kar lein
              Phir yon howa
              Nazrein aankhon tak ga-ein
              or zindagi thum gaii
              Khwahishein reh gein
              or hum Dob ga-ey

                I plan to read The Daughter next.

                It is about a divorced couple, both of whom are doctors, and their teenage daugther goes missing. In the quest to find her, the mother discovers startling revelations that leave her feeling as though....she never knew her daughter at all.

                  اپ کے کمنٹ سے خیال ایا
                  اپ کی نظر کرتا ھوں

                  خود سے دور نہ رھا کر
                  کبھی بند آنکھوں سے
                  خود کو بھی پڑھا کر
                  الجھتے صفحوں میں انگلیاں الجھا کر
                  خیال کی الجھتی لٹ سے کھیلا کر
                  پھر اس لمحے میں
                  خود سے پوچھا کر
                  میں کون ھوں
                  اور غیر مانوس جواب سن کر
                  نہ رویا کر
                  اور
                  خود سے
                  دور نہ رہا کر
                  کبھی بند آنکھوں سے
                  خود کو بھی پڑھا کر
