Mario Puzo's The Godfather - I have been keeping this book for years already. I don't even know how this came to be in my possession. But after years that it has been in my bookshelf, and after several tries of leafing through the pages and not finishing it, once again, I have become engrossed with the story.
It's engrossing because it talks of a family, maybe more of a Mafia-kind but the story revolves around the strength of a family, their weaknesses, how they cover for each other, how they take revenge against the evil that's been made upon them, and how they deal with each other's characters. It is interesting to note how the Don was able to manipulate each of his children's lives, yet, giving them enough freedom to do what they want and enjoy what they want to do, all under the scrutinizing eyes of Don Corleone.
I am already almost done with the book, and what's next in my pending reads are 5 of Grisham's novels. While I am trying to be very resourceful of my time, I still have 3 things to learn regarding work, Labor Market Information, Community Based Employment Programs and the Worker's Statutory and Monetary Rights.
It would be fortunate for me if I can squeeze in some reading after Mario Puzo's The Godfather, judging from the way I am seeing my planner filled with things to do.
What's your current read? What's your current indulgence?
