Dear fellow bookworms, welcome to my book blog: Ghifari’s Notebook!

My name is Abi Ghifari, a bibliophile who lives in Jakarta, Indonesia. Just in case you’re wondering why is the blog title, the Notebook sure does exist! I have several notebooks to write down my reading list and all of my thoughts about books, about literary world, and about reading activities in general. I’m a little bit ‘old-fashioned’ when it comes to writing and note-taking. Even though I already use applications such as Goodreads to track my reading accomplishments and write book reviews and Evernote to write my random thoughts or book quotes, I can’t be separated from my physical notebooks and prefer to write my long thoughts in there. Sometimes, I would also write notes on my books by using post-its.

This blog is bi-lingual: English and Indonesian (Bahasa). I’m trying to share my thoughts and have a discussion with international readers but on the other side I intend to capture Indonesian fellow readers as well. Majority of posts in this blog are written in Indonesian. However, I’m planning to write more in English.

I love all books, but of course as a mere human being I have preferences. My favorite reading is literature: classic and contemporary. I enjoys novels more, but I also do read poems, short-stories, and plays. Besides the works of fiction, I also adores non-fiction in form of memoirs, essays, biographies, scientific reports, and historical and socio-cultural investigations.

Be sure to follow, check for updates, and leave comments for further discussion.

Have a great day! 🙂

Kalau boleh ni mas, saya mau nanya sedikit gimana analisisnya mas ttg cerpen itu, soalnya itu cerpen surealis banget dan susah dicerna oleh saya yang masih pemula. Saya msh pnasaran apa yg ada di bawah tip of the iceberg. Terima kasih sebelumnya
