If you are a book lover and you are constantly broke like in my case, you have only two options to read books either you go to google and write the name of the book you have in mind plus pdf free download, or you go to the library. thanks GOD we have those options because if you live in morocco, books are insanely expensive I don’t even go around book shops anymore. since I prefer paper books over e-books I borrow books from the library more often, in this post I would share with you the books I borrowed to read for the next weeks.
I borrowed two graphic novels:
La tectonique de plaques by Margaux Motin :a book that the woman at the library told me was so funny plus I really liked the drawings and the colors, it’s actually the third book of a trilogy I couldn't find the first and the second ones but it’s ok I think I would understand the story without reading them.
Journal d’un dégonflé by Jeff Kinney: This graphic novel is a diary of 12 years old child, the book just looks fun.
Three non fiction books which are:
Les monologues du vagin by Eve Ensler: this book is a piece of theatre inspired from responses that the author Eve Ensler got when she asked a bunch of women about their opinion about their vagina, I chose this book because I found its title on the internet when I was looking for books about feminism, the subject looks so weird which made me excited to read the book.
Le surrealisme by Patrick Waldberg: For some reason lately I became really curious about surrealism, I just want to know its roots, history the meaning of its symbols, maybe this book would answer those questions.
Comment parler d'art aux enfants by Françoise Barbe-Gall : The art section at the library intimidates me, I like paintings and art in general but I don’t understand much of it, I was afraid to pick a book that I would find difficult, so I picked a book aimed for teachers, a easy way for them to answer students questions, I think it would be useful for someone like me.
The last thing I borrowed is a movie, I chose a movie called HARRAGAS directed by the Algerian director Merzak Allouache, I actually never had heard about this movie; hope it won’t be a waste of time.
So this was my library hall, excited to read all those books and watch the movie. I would like to know if you borrow from the library like me or you prefer to own your books or you do both? Have a nice day everyone.
