Once last week and twice today, I failed miserably.
In my defense (lame excuse 1) , last week I needed some upper body exercise, so getting some books are equivalent to carrying dumbells .. havent exercised in a while so ........ yeah.
This morning I was in Jusco Bukit Raja and I am not sure why but I walked in Popular bookstore without realising it was Popular. Betul !!! Now what was it that I was looking for there? Err, told ya, I went it without realising ......... and my eyes saw the latest Jodi Picoult book already out in paperback .. it was calling to me oh .. mendayu-dayu memujuk ...*anak mami .. ambiklah cheq bawak balik ... kita boleh jadi best fren ...* how do you say no to that?????
In my defense (lame excuse 2) , the book was calling out to me begging me to take it out from that awful place and I had been waiting for this paperback version ..
This evening I had to go to Jusco Bukit Tinggi to get 1) movie tickets for tomorrow's show Eat, Pray, Love (yeayyyy .. ), cant wait to see my favourite Hollywood heart throb Julia Roberts in action again .. and 2) a quick stop at eerr Popular , needed a ream of A4 papers lah ..
No 1 went smoothly ...........
No 2 .. errk .. a doink and a boink combination .. as I was walking towards the cashier my eyes made a quick swipe (should have just walked and not swipe the eyes!!) of the books on display and OH MY GOD .. its out, its out, its out ... Noooo .. the 3rd book of the trilogy of Matthew Reilly's .. I already read and own the previous two, how can I NOT get this??? Should I? *practical thinking personality *with mischievious smile* june - yess, this is the third book, u've een waiting ..how can u not have this?? its a collection, not complete, not complete, not complete if you dont get itttt*
The real june gave in to the split practical thinking personality :)
In my defence (lame excuse 3), it is the last book for my set, its a MUST, kan kan???
My cupboard is in a mess, I was supposed to get all the books out, catalogue them (cewaahh) and then keep what I want and sell or give away the rest ... I took them out, became lazy and chucked them back in again ... here's a sneak peek ..
|this box has neatly arranged books inside, truly filled up|
|not in shelf, no space LOL|
Sorry for the haphazard pic arrangements, (too lazy to rearrange them) follows the traits of the blogger LOL .. and my friend Serena has about 30 of my books in her possession still .. she gleefully came and raided my cupboard, went home with the huge ikea blue recycle bag !!
And I have another box, half filled. And I easily have close to 50 new unread books in there, bought at a whim and fancy, its pages still waiting to be caress lovingly. I need to re read the Harry Potter 7th book, the movie is coming out .. and I have been wanting to re read the Lord of the Rings series .....
Help .. I must find a cure for this I am a Go-In-BookStore-Must-buy-holic syndrome ... and simply stay home and read, read, read till I
