I bought books today!!!

Oooh.. I having an obsessions with books lately. Been going to warehouse sales to buy books, library to borrow them and now to a real bookstore to buy one too!!! Talk about saving money! Hmph! Right.

Luckily this time my dad was there to take out his credit card. Wish he would do that for my clothes too.. But a girl can't ask too much can she? =(

Did you know MPH is having a small little sale for its MRC members? 15% discount on all books!!! I wanted to buy Time Traveler's Wife with the discount and everything. Not to mention my dad around too but I COULDN"T FIND IT!!! Out of stock!!!

Geram!!! (means angry) Bluek!!! Ah.... Now I have to pay myself. I know.. I know.. I'm a spoiled girl.

Guess what book I found? After doing the tag in my previous post, I really went and paid special attention to books that were in the list. And I have heard about this book for a long time already but didn't really know it existed. I first knew about this book when I was reading Hearts in Atlantis by Stephen King. This book was mention inside by one of the characters. A gift given by an old man to a young 11 year old by. Then I didn't really know it existed because its from the book and everything but the way Stephen King describe it.

''The best book that you have read! The only book that you need to read to fully be a man.''

Or something to that effect.

Until I saw the title just now on the list and later in MPH!!! I knew I had to get it!!! Wahaha.. Now I do!!!

Read this before? Lord of the Flies?

There was a stall outside MPH too. Books that are much cheaper. Around 30% discount! By MPH too of coz. I think these are the left overs from the warehouse sale. Though it was slightly more expensive compared to the warehouse sale but who cares! Hehe..

Bought 2 books!

The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy

Heard about this book for a long time but never gotten down to actually read it. Mainly because I think it will be boring but I shouldn't judge a book by its cover right? Shall give it the benefit of the doubt! =)

Saw this in the list in my previous post. And read some reviews on it. Seems that this book is hilarious. Hmm... It remains to be seen!

Catch 22 by Joseph Heller

Saw Life of Pi by Yann Martel, I Know This Much is True by Wally Lamb, One Hundred Years Of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez and The Good Earth by Pearl S. Buck. Think I should buy any of these? I'll have to fork out my own money this time. What do you think? Worth it?

Now I just have to start reading all these books. Oh dear... I'm having an obsession now.. Oh dear.. Oh dear..

So.. Read any of these books before? What do you think? Go check out MPH if you wanna buy some books. Maybe you can contact me if you don't have the card.

Have fun reading!
