I am a happy girl. An unproductive day in Ayala Museum (nude model, watercolor, was late, messed it up). But The Boyfriend and I dropped by two BookSales on our way home. See, I never promised to not buy books. I just said I’d be more… (fuck, what’s the word?) picky (there’s a better word than picky, I swear).
- Shopgirl, by Steve Martin. I’ve been seeing this everywhere, but never wanted to buy it. It was 35 bucks (75 cents to ye dollar-carrying peeps), so I figured, why not?
- Blue Diary, by Alice Hoffman. She has her flaws, but she’s crazy-special to me (see item #03 of this post). It’s auto-buy. PhP35 too. I can’t even believe I don’t have this book yet.
- Special Topics in Calamity Physics, by Marisha Pessl. Had to buy. I aced HS Physics, FYI. Random, sorry. IT IS A COOL BOOK, AND I NEED TO READ IT, OKAY?
- Amy and Isabelle, by Elizabeth Strout. Didn’t much like Olive Kitteridge–that book switches from “Currently Reading” to “Abandoned” and back again, depending on my mood. But, why not? PhP35 too.
Well. All for 240 pesos. Wahoo. That’s about 5 dollars? Is my math right? Bah. Anyways, of course this wrecks my best-laid weekend plans: reading for school, since next week’s going to be pretty hectic. I’ll find a way. I will always find a way. Good God, I have to, that’s Alice Hoffman waiting for me there, okay?
