Books… The only other things I like besides food… and clothes

A few days ago, I bought 4 books all at once.



blink The Power of Thinking Without Thinking gave a new meaning to “don’t judge a book by its cover”. What caught my attention first was the simple white and blue cover. Should I or should I not buy it? I went back to the store 2 more times and in addition to my colleague’s recommendation on the third visit, I decided to buy it! The 2 seconds snap judgment had to work 3 times before I made up my mind. Ten pages into the introduction, I realized I hadn’t made the wrong choice.

Although I’ve read both of the Albom’s books (courtesy of hs), I simply had to own them as I’ve refused to return them to her long after I’ve finished reading.

Rich Dad Poor Dad was so hyped about years ago that it was no harm getting it since there was a 20% discount. In fact, what made me get all those books was that they were on 20% discount. I’m not so literary after all. Heh…

Next on my list would be Never Hit a Jellyfish with a Spade. Only Kinokuniya has it and the last one standing had its jacket torn off. It’s a whooping $30+++ for a small little black book. No wonder it is left on the shelf. Anybody knows where else can I get that book? Ok fine, I think nobody has heard of it before.
