[Book Quote Tuesday] Are you disappearing “little by little in your own time?”

How does it feel to be "absorbed into oblivion?"

Myra here.

It is that time of the week again where we share a book quote that seemed particularly striking for us.

For the month of AUGUST, our book quote theme is: PASSAGE.

While I vaguely recall reading One Hundred Years of Solitude (Amazon | Book Depository) in my 20s – I don’t think I have tackled Love In The Time Of Cholera (Amazon | Book Depository) yet. I know that I have been influenced by Marquez’s magical realism, but I may have been too young when I first started reading his novels that much of his writing may have gone over my head. I look forward to rediscovering him in the coming years ahead.

Myra is a Teacher Educator and a registered clinical psychologist based in Al Ain, United Arab Emirates. Prior to moving to the Middle East, she lived for eleven years in Singapore serving as a teacher educator. She has edited five books on rediscovering children’s literature in Asia (with a focus on the Philippines, Malaysia, India, China, Japan) as part of the proceedings for the Asian Festival of Children’s Content where she served as the Chair of the Programme Committee for the Asian Children’s Writers and Illustrators Conference from 2011 until 2019. While she is an academic by day, she is a closet poet and a book hunter at heart. When she is not reading or writing about books or planning her next reads, she is hoping desperately to smash that shuttlecock to smithereens because Badminton Is Life (still looking for badminton courts here at UAE - suggestions are most welcome).
