10 Things Non-Readers Do That Annoy Me

Ahh, non-readers. Those odd, clueless species who are so bewildered when they see a reader crying over fictional characters, gushing about worlds that do not exist and cancelling plans because we’d like to finish one more incredible chapter. We know that our habits perplex them…even annoy them. All we do is read, and read, and read. 

We understand their frustrations, of course, don’t we? In fact, we have our frustrations too, because non-readers do a lot of things too that annoys us and sometimes makes us want to smack their heads with those very heavy books we cherish. And here is a list of just 10 of those annoying things that non-readers do that seriously annoy me:

Sunday Wrap Up: Week #1 of September


Gosh I feel terrible.

I am so sorry to start this post on such a bad note. I have been feeling really sick lately, but being the idiot I am, I ignored it and went about my daily routine instead of taking things easy and taking care of my health. And now my body is literally taking revenge on me. Ooops.

Monthly Wrap Up: August At A Glance

Around the end of every month, it’s almost tradition to take a moment to pause and have a look back. August this year was an emotional roller coaster ride due to all the chaos that has been happening in my country, as well as due to some personal incidents too. It was a month during which I thought I wouldn’t be able to do much good…but in the end, it turned out that I did manage to achieve most of my goals this month.

It's Eid-ul-Azha Tomorrow!

Hello everyone! This is a completely non-bookish post (hence why it is in the Stray Thoughts) but I wanted to share this with you guys anyway since tomorrow is a very exciting day for me. Eid-ul-Azha marks the anniversary of a very special day in Islamic history (in fact, this event is also recognized by Christianity…I’m not so sure about Judaism) but for me, the highlight of this day is the happiness it brings to those below the poverty line–on this day, those who can afford it are required to sacrifice a herbivore and donate a minimum of one-third of it’s meat to charity–if you can afford to do more, then it is recommended that you do more for the poor. And really, there is something very uplifting and also humbling about seeing the excitement and happiness this day brings to these particular people.

On a less serious note and a more personal note, Eid is another opportunity of gaining extra weight in my family. My mom, who is an excellent cook, loves making us fat and so this is what Eid usually brings to our dining table.

I’m obviously not going to be getting rid of the 10 pounds I’ve been wanting to lose this month.

Oooh and also, my sister just came home with mehdi (heena tattoo) on her hands!




I know that’s a lot heena tattoo images but I’m just excited to see if it comes out a rich ruby red tomorrow morning when she washes off the green paste.

Anyways, Muslim or not, believer or not, I want to wish every one of my followers lots and lots of love and good wishes tomorrow and on the days to come. Have a great weekend, everyone!
