Watter leser is jy? Die ingedagte-leser – jy lees, maar jou gedagtes is ver weg.

Jy lees en jy is verdiep in wat jy lees. Niks en niemand om jou kan jou pla nie.

Jy het ‘n opdrag en jy moet die boek lees. Jy sou iets anders wou lees, maar daar’s nie nou tyd nie.

Jy lees hier-en-daar in die koerant – slegs dit wat regtig jou aandag vasvang en jou aandag behou. Al die ander artikels is ‘ou nuus’.

Jy lees en deel dit wat jy lees graag met ander.

Jy lees en jy absoluut geniet wat jy lees. Jy kan nie wag om die opvolg van die boek te lees nie. Dis spanningsvol, dramaties en jy voel een met die karakter.

Jy is in jou gunsteling plek! Jy wil net meer en meer lees. Jy voel dat tyd stil gaan staan het. Jy hoop nie iemand kry jou hier nie.

Jy is ontspanne, jy geniet dit om te lees, maar jy geniet nie elke bladsy van die boek nie. Hier en daar slaan jy ‘n bladsy oor, want jy wil graag ‘n meer interessante boek lees.

Jy geniet die boek terdeȅ, maar jy is oppad na ‘n afspraak. Jy wil nie graag gaan nie en sou hierdie boek eerder wou klaar lees!

Jy het nou ‘n tydjie vir daardie spesiale koppie tee – en jou gunsteling skrywer se nuutste boek! Jy probeer jou tee-breuk rek – so lank jy kan met verskonings dat die tee baie warm vandag is, net so lank jy nog een bladsy van die boek kan lees!

Daar was ‘n tyd toe daar gedink is dat vroue nie veronderstel is om ‘meer’ te weet nie. Gelukkig is daardie tyd verby en leef ons in ‘n moderne tyd! Al die kunswerke hierbo is deur die kunstenares: Sylvie Vanlerberghe. Sy het heelwat kunswerke van mense wat lees – nie slegs vroue nie – mans en kinders ook.

This book “First they killed my father” is a must-read if you like to read books about wars. This is a sad story, but it gives you a true insight in what really happened during the Vietnam War. Read the reviews on Amazon, follow the link below. I totally agree with what everybody says about this book. 
and……….read the sequel too….”Lucky Child…” It’s brilliant, though very upsetting what Loung Ung and her family – and others in Vietnam – had to experience.

The Lion and the Snake

The lion and the snake were fighting. The snake escaped the lion’s claws before the lion could kill it, and fled to the man’s house. The snake begged the man to hide it because the lion was pursuing it. The man hid the snake in his cupboard and the lion never found it, although he searched the house.When the lion had gone, the snake took his leave from the man, saying, “How are good deeds rewarded?” The man said, “Normally good deeds are rewarded with money, but since you have no money, you may give me an animal as soon as you have been successful at hunting.” The snake said, “But do you not know that snakes reward good with evil? I am going to devour you, man!” The man said, “No, no, that isn’t fair. We men always reward good with gratitude and useful goods. Let’s ask the bee first.” The bee said, “I never get any gratitude. Man just takes my honey after having smoked me out of my own house.” The man said, “Let’s ask the mango tree.” The mango tree said, “I never receive thanks. Man takes my fruits, and when I bear no more, he cuts me down and throws me into his fire.” The man said, “Let’s ask the coconut palm.” The coconut palm said, “It is true, good is rewarded with evil. Man takes my nuts, taps my sap, and to cap it all off, he cuts off my leaves for his roof.”The snake said to the man, “You see, now I will eat you.” The man said, “Wait until I have said goodbye to my wife.” The snake agreed and they went to the man’s house. The man said, “Dear wife, the snake is going to eat me, goodbye!” The wife said, “Surely, Mr. Snake, you would like some eggs as a hors d’ouevre?” She took a bag of eggs and held it open for the snake. The snake put in his head to take an egg. The woman pulled the string tight and so caught the snake with its head in the bag. Then she took a knife and cut its throat, saving her husband’s life. But the husband divorced her, for men reward the good women do them with evil.
