Energy drained every time we finished hosting a meetup. It requires attention to details, good coordination, and takes lesson from mistakes. As an INTJ person who doesn’t really enjoy public speaking, I want to stay quiet for the rest of the day after that. Lol.
Is it worth the effort? I’d say yes, cuz we encourage ppl to read and stimulate their minds, to ask, to find answers from books.
With JBC, I read more books even in my busy days (not as much as I used to when I’m in primary and secondary schools, but good enough). When I was 5-20, I read 2-3 books a day, or about 720 books a year (complete all the books, not just partial). If you combine the total, that’s more than 10,000 books in 15 years. That are still more books out there! So, yes, I regretted the years when I abandoned my love of reading.
If you haven’t read enough, you are missing a lot. #jakartabookclub #April
