Today I hoarded more books, but I don’t feel too bad ‘cause I got all four for PhP225: Neil Gaiman’s Fragile Things and Anansi Boys, Audrey Niffenegger’s The Time Traveler’s Wife, and Great Tales and Poems of Edgar Allan Poe! I just inserted the exclamation point for feeling. It’s safe to say it was a great day.
Last week, I finally got the Chu’s Day posters we ordered from Books of Wonder. Each limited edition poster, which supports charity, was signed by Neil Gaiman and Adam Rex.
When I get my own house someday, I’ll save a special spot for putting this up.
I’ve never bawled while reading, but hey, there’s a first for everything. Cried over The Book Thief, woke up with swollen eyes, and tweeted about it. And Markus Zusak replied.

Still need to catch up on my reading, but I find it a lovely coincidence that I’m reading a book about a book (with a book within a book) on World Book Day. To more pages—cheers!
