Books, books, books!

What am I doing blogging at 821 on a Saturday morning?! Oh you bet I wanna go back to sleep but I'll do that in a bit. I have a deadline, see.

Anyway, yesterday I was scheduled to take a commute going to the garden. My brother dropped me off on North Avenue. Before going to the fx terminal, I paid some bills and dropped by NBS to look for the book RA recommended, that one by Khaled Hosseini "The Kite Runner" but ended up buying his other book "A Thousand Splendid Suns". Now reading the reader reviews over at Amazon of this second book, I feel it is not a waste to buy it. I will drop by FullyBooked later to check for a copy of Kite Runner. Maybe I should read it first before I start with Splendid. I'll probably borrow from RA if I don't find the book by Wednesday.

And then I could not resist getting more books that I took and paid for three novels by Neil Gaiman (Stardust, American Gods and Neverwhere)! I've been hearing about this guy for a while now (He was in Manila last year?) but never got around to buying any of his stuff. Reading for me is a passion yet I am just beginning to broaden my choices. I am thankful that I am given the opportunity (and extra money) to buy books. Books for me are investments and am not so much of an e-book girl. I started with Stardust yesterday and I will just post insights about the books I listed once am done with them. ♥

Four books! And not done yet book shopping?!? You bet Ane almost had a heart attack when he learned about my latest purchases. He'll get over it, hehe.
