Today’s little victory is getting this hardbound book for PhP100.
I’m getting my reading groove back, and this is one of the delightful reads I finished this month. Yay!
The last book I finished, if I remember it right, was Markus Zusak’s The Book Thief. It was the first time I have ever cried over a book. The trailer for the movie of the same title came out a few days ago, and it looks really promising. I’m expecting myself to cry over the movie as well—or would pre-empting myself prevent that?
(Because really, you only need two words: Rudy Steiner.)

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.
