Reading is a way of life. I might not have read as many books as other bibliophiles had but I have learned quite a lot from the countless books on my shelves. These books have various differences that steered me toward many directions. Some have taught me how to articulate my emotions through writing, while some have taught me deeper lessons in life. The best ones have sparked my dream to become an author someday.
When National Book Store released this ad, I immediately told myself that I should try this. Not only because I wanted to write something on my blog but because I wanted to be one of the advocates of the NBS foundation.
By simply uploading a video of yourself reading a few lines from your favorite book, you’ll be able to help NBS set up libraries in public schools.

For those of you who haven’t read the book yet, here’s the blurb from Goodreads.
The Witch of Portobello
by Paulo Coelho
How do we find the courage to always be true to ourselves—even if we are unsure of whom we are?
That is the central question of international bestselling author Paulo Coelho’s profound new work, The Witch of Portobello. It is the story of a mysterious woman named Athena, told by the many who knew her well—or hardly at all.
