DP Daily Prompts: Reader’s Block
What’s the longest you’ve ever gone without reading a book(since learning how to read, of course)? which book was it that helped the dry spell?
The longest I’ve gone without reading a book was about a week. I looked around one day to read one.I noticed a book my daughter gave me, I picked it up but the title did not make me curious.
I started reading to my surprise I got more and more interested, and ended up reading it twice. it is a memoir of Saroo from India. He did a very good job, he came from a very poor family,was lost and ended up in an orphanage at age five.
He was adopted by an Australian couple.They took him to Australia raised him. After twenty-five years he was reunited with his original family in India.
It is an unbelievable story of a little boy who kept reminding himself of his mother and siblings.
