A HOLE lot of books

Lung Cancer and Book Sales

Just kidding

But seriously, this coughing needs to stop.

So, instead of talking about my coughing up blood together with my sputum - which is a mixture of saliva and phlegm; waiting for 2 hours for my doctor to arrive, undergo an x-ray and blood count and to collect my morning spit for three days, and be aware of a hole on my right lung, I'll talk about the 3 DAY BOOK SALE  at Fully Booked, a local bookstore. Or maybe international, but I don't really care.

Anyway, I actually had a list with me but most of them were either out of stock or priced exorbitantly even with the 20% discount. Although I blame me for not going on an earlier date and an earlier time. Sucks.
Here's the list of books (No particular order of preference):
  1. 2030: The Real Story of What Happens to America by Albert Brooks
  2. Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand
  3. Eleven Minutes by Paolo Coelho
    • I don't know why I didn't bought this book even though I am a huge fan of Coelho's works...
  4. Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness
  5. Book Thief by Markus Zusak
  6. Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
  7. The Moon is a Harsh Mistress by Robert Heinlein
  8. Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen
yellow highlight - out of stock
light blue highlight - bought
I was really looking forward to get a hold of The Book Thief but the last copy was reserved by some *insert profanities such as fucking douche bag.
He doesn't deserve the insult...but THE LAST COPY?!?!? lasdjahldgslfhny
Luckily the other one that I wanted to buy - The Knife of Never Letting Go was still available!! Yey!

Plus I came across a work of Audrey Niffenegger, the author of The Time Traveler's Wife (which I really, really liked *tears) and Blindness (since I already finished Seeing) by Jose Saramago. Try reading Saramago's work, his style of writing is very odd and  interesting. 'Em long sentences and studded with commas.

I still need to finish Aleph though, i've been on the same page for 2 months. haha.
