(Also, this is the reason why I am a book blogger and not a vlogger. I apologize in advance for my x1000 awkwardness, bad lighting in my room and soft sounding voice.)
I am joining National Bookstore's amazing initiative called the Read Out Loud Challenge, where they will help set up one library in a public school for every 75 videos posted. Supporting such an initiative is more important than my fear of filming myself so here you go~. I am reading from Maggie Stiefvater's (I skipped saying her name in fear of pronouncing it wrong XD) The Dream Thieves.
"A secret is a strange thing.
There are three kinds of secrets. One is the sort everyone knows about, the sort you need at least two people for. One to keep it. One to never know. The second is a harder kind of secret: one you keep from yourself. Every day, thousand of confessions are kept from their would-be confessors, none of these people knowing that their never-admitted secrets all boil down to the same three words: I am afraid.
And then there is the third kind of secret, the most hidden kind. A secret no one knows about. Perhaps it was known once, but was taken to the grave. Or maybe it is a useless mystery, arcane and lonely, unfound because no one ever looked for it.
Sometimes, some rare times, a secret stays undiscovered because it is something too big for the mind to hold. It is too strange, too vast, too terrifying to contemplate.
All of us have secrets in our lives. We're keepers or kept-from, players or played. Secrets and cockroaches- that's what will be left at the end of it all."
And so I am tagging Leslie of The Bibliophile Kid, Louisse of The Soul Sisters and Jesselle of The Lifelong Bookworm.
