How to start reading a book or a novel?

Novel – Destined to Heal With by Lamiya Siraj

So, In brief, I would like to sum up by mentioning below points that would help to peak up your interest till you develop an appetite for it:

  1. Start with Fiction and preferably the category that suits your interest.
  2. Prefer paper edition above digital at least for few initial books. Everything from the smell of paper to the sound of turning pages would make you fall in love.
  3. Be inquisitive and try out various genres. Try reading the popular books in the category. Take the help of Goodreads to get the reviews.
  4. If possible develop a circle of friends who have the common interest of reading.
  5. Reading book the last thing of the day is a love of its own kind. Try shutting down your system with reading a book as the last step.

Happy Reading!

The first and foremost point that comes to our mind is:

How to start reading a book?

I guess many of you must have come across this thought!!!

This is a bit genuine one…

So as mentioned in the poster above,
There are three sections to a book:-

• Front
• Middle
• End

The first step to reading a book is to find a book that interests you. If you haven’t read any books earlier and the idea of reading a thick book tire you, you can start with short stories (so that you don’t get bored with the ever-extending plot of regular novels).

1. Get yourself your favourite munchies and drink.
2. Open the book.
3. Start reading the words written there till you reach some punctuation mark.
4. If it is a comma(,), take a pause and continue reading.
5. If it is a full stop(.) then, then halt and try analysing what you read.
6. Go on, read the following sentence.
7. If the text is between quotation marks (” “). Imagine a character from some movie speaking it for you inside your head (e.g. It’s always Tony Stark inside my head when I need a pep talk). This might be a little difficult initially, but you’ll get used to it, and it’ll just come by itself later.
8. Replace the voices/ characters for different characters in the book. Don’t read all sentences in the same voice. (No, never).
9. Also, try putting emotions in the sentence you read. If it’s a happy sentence, allow yourself to be satisfied. Feel free to let the sound come alive if there’s action involved.

If you were reading some mystery novel and got tired after a few chapters, go to the end and check out who’s alive and missing. Then, go back to where you left and try figuring out what happened to that person. Alternately, you may skip a few chapters and play connect the dots (figuratively).

Reading books is pretty interesting.

Coming on to the next piece of information,
What does it mean by front pages?

  1. Front pages have the front material, which is the writing at the front of the book that isn’t the first chapter of the book.
  2. It comes in four basic flavors, and each type serves a different purpose. You can decide on your own whether or not you want to read any given section of front material.
  3. The four types of front material are:
  4. Acknowledgments:

A brief section that lists people who helped the author during the writing process.

You can read acknowledgements if you like, but most people don’t bother.

  1. Foreword: The foreword is written by a different author than the person who wrote the book.

The foreword talks about what to expect from the book and why it is worth reading.

  1. Preface:

The preface is written by the author of the book.

It is usually (but not always) shorter than the foreword and is basically an essay that explains how and why the book was written.
The preface can give you some valuable insight if you’re interested in the author’s personal life or creative process.

  1. Introduction:

The introduction is where the author speaks directly to the reader and introduces the book, reviewing its intent and building excitement in the reader about getting to read it.

Introductions are more often found in nonfiction books than fiction books.

Coming on to the next piece of information,
What does it mean by end pages?

  1. It is other writing, typically by different authors, that appear after the main book has ended.
  2. If you greatly enjoyed a book, end material can give you a chance to revisit parts of it.
  3. If you didn’t understand the importance of a book, it can provide important historical and cultural context.
  4. All end material is totally optional.

No one becomes a reader overnight.

One needs to work on their reading habit. If you want to become a voracious reader or bibliophile, you too have to work on it.

First, start with the genre you like. Or you can also start with short stories in magazines, over the internet.

Enjoy Reading! All the best 🙂

2. 3 Trimester of life.

They taught us what pain is… Sacrifice is their Middle name… Yes, they are CALLED as Mothers.

3 trimesters of life. Beginning of motherhood.

Real stories of the mother about the journey of 9 months of having a baby. Released on Mother’s Day.

Motherhood generally describes a part of a woman’s life, but the word often carries a woman’s world in itself. You are frequently asked to get married as soon as you enter a valid age as a girl. Once you are married, the eternal question to plan a baby comes in the queue. Then this story usually starts from the good news. It goes through a long journey of patience for nine months and ends with a melodious cry. This is a story every woman has lived. A story every girl imagines about.

Reviews in the Magazine & Blogs for my Book: One Step Ahead.

One Step Ahead: A Leaf Out of Life of Lamiya Siraj

A lot us don’t tend to make ourselves feel better whenever we go through something. we always place our happiness and our strength in other people and then end up getting hurt when the person is not available or just doesn’t care enough.

And when this happens, we fall into a deep void of darkness and struggle on how to climb that mountain of fears and self-doubt.
This explanation after the reading the book as an review has caught my attention and made placed in my heart!

The description couldn’t have been better for the book than narrating this: ‘ The contents start with the topic of ‘Happiness’ and End with her views on ‘Technology’. Throughout the book, she stands with a side of kindness and love and how it can change our lives even if we don’t believe it. From making time for ourselves in this monotonous world to needing equality between men and women, she perfectly stood to her point of helping others understand and how our mentality about a situation can help resolve the problems we are facing.

The author ends the book by saying that every one of us is filled with emotions and if the book is enjoyed even by one person, her job here is done.

And I would like to let the author know that I enjoyed and admired this book very much while I was reading and even after I finished reading it.

Thank you again ‘Café and Cities Magazine, for your generosity in reading the book and publishing the reviews. And my thanks here would be incomplete without thanking Ashbiha Fathima. Glad to have you as my satisfied reader.
