#13 - A Fictional Book
If there is one fictional book I would like to own and/or read, it would have to be "Daddy Long Legs," by Jean Webster.
It is a story about an orphan named Judy Abbott, who had the chance to study college with the help of a benefactor she nicknamed "Daddy Long Legs," after seeing a glimpse of his shadow.
Actually, it was through the local television that I got to learn about this story - there was a Japanese anime shown some years back (I cannot recall if I was high school or college when I first watched it), and I just fell in love with it. I loved the characters, the wit, the storyline, and yes, the ending. It was so amazing that all things came to full circle. Very touching, indeed.
While writing this post, I made a quick search, and was happy and thankful to have found an e-book version from Google. I may not own the book, but at least I can read it. As for the anime version, I am already looking forward to the annual gifts and toys festival in December, I just hope someone will sell a copy of the anime series.
#14 - A Non-Fiction Book
As for the Non-Fiction Book, I would share this book, "The Friendship Factor" by Alan Loy McGinnis. The first time I saw the book was through a college classmate, and knowing it wasn't an expensive of a book, I decided to find and buy myself a copy.
It wasn't a favorite book, but I love it. I don't own that much books, but I do love reading those self-help books, and this is something I read over and over again. I am one of those people who has difficulty in opening up and making friends, and although I have read this quite a few times I still have to master what the friendship factor is. :)
