my 2009 book list

the first quarter of the year is almost over and still i have not bought anything to read. what to do, i don't have the resources yet. however, something good is cooking and hopefully it goes on and on. as usual i have a long list of what-to-do and what-to-buy. but let's face it, i have to go slow just as yet, so let's start with the ultimate passion: books.

lately i skipped visiting the bookshop in reef mall. still, i can't hold back my tears whenever i leave a bookstore without purchasing a single item. if there is anything that could dampen my spirit, that is turning my eyes away from a good book and a good book means just anything that is interesting. so it always boils down to feeling low after a trip to the store.

this year i would be careful to buy only those that i really want. my roommates are now complaining of the boxes i have under the bed and they keep on nagging me to send them to the philippines. not that they're not enjoying. i mean, lucy has 3 of my books in her bed right now, and mel is almost done with the last temptation.

i hope blogspot would help me stick to my list. i really hope that i won't be so overwhelmed by the many books in the shop that i would again be spending too much like i did last year.

Alexandre Dumas - anything from the guru. i just love this french author. i've read most of his books but i don't know where my copies are now. i am still waiting for juan to fulfill a promise he made a few years back. i hope he still remembers that someone here in dubai wants him to go to VP bookshop.

Autobiography of Benazir Bhutto - started reading the book at the bookshop in reef mall. finished a quarter of the book, free reading thanks to kuya the storekeeper.

One Man's Meat by EB White is a "witty, succinct observations on daily life at a Maine saltwater farm. Too personal for an almanac, too sophisticated for a domestic history, and too funny and self-doubting for a literary journal, One Man's Meat can best be described as a primer of a countryman's lessons a timeless recounting of experience that will never go out of style."

Prison Writing by Kim Dae Jung

Dan Brown - whoever borrowed my DB books, please return them immediately before i buy another set. pls, pls, pls!

Stephenie Meyer - i love edward cullen and that's thanks to cielo. oh yeah, i love vampire stories too. now i am missing sir joel. he's a great fan of lestat also but he wants to be the creation of either armand or of the queen of the damned. whatever! i simply love lestat. and edward cullen.

Love Story by Erich Segal - this one i want to give to Lucy.

there are more... but i am afraid it's too lofty a dream. will post next time.
