Anyway, here are a couple of books I've recently acquired:
- A Bottle of Storm Clouds: Stories by Eliza Victoria - I love the cover! I first learned about this through Tina and I got curious. So on one of my trips to NBS, I tried to look for a copy, and got rewarded when I found one. :)
- The White Tiger by Aravind Adiga - I distinctly remember reading a bookish buddy's write-up on the book, but couldn't recall whether he liked it or not. But since it was a bargain find for only P115.00 at Book Sale, I decided to get it anyway. I figured I couldn't go wrong with a Man Booker Prize awardee, yes?
I also loaded several e-books into Candy the Kindle:
- Smoke and Mirrors by Neil Gaiman - My brother-in-law actually has a print book, but he appears to have misplaced it. So I tried looking for trade paperback copies of this (Fully Booked, Powerbooks and NBS branches all) but my search proved futile. Since I couldn't wait to read it, as in I was itching to read it, like, right away, I decided to buy the Kindle edition. [Aldrin, you wouldn't have a digital copy of this, would you?]
- Dracula by Bram Stoker - A follow-up to Elizabeth Kostova's The Historian, but since I needed a break from all the bloodsuckers for a bit, I thought I'd read Gaiman first before I make acquaintance with Dracula. :D
The latter two titles, by the way, are included in this month's reading list. Wish me luck! :D
