Reading Month

As Yvonne's skilled hands efficiently wrapped my books with protective book covers, I couldn't help but to be awed. A few quick snippets, the plastic wrappers were sized accordingly. Then she folded the ends in, secure with cellophane tapes here and there. And Ta-da! Nicely wrapped books ready to be flipped from cover to cover, withstand multiple times of reading, anytime, anywhere! I like my books to be wrapped before I walk into the content of them :)

In the past week, I've visited a book fair in KLCC (Book Fest) almost everyday, even if it's raining cats and dogs after work. I need a new book shelf - that is how broke I am (how much I've spent) after the trips there.

Books which I have bought from KLCC Book Fest:
1) Prisoner of Birth - Jeffrey Archer (RM19.90)
2) Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - J.K. Rowling (RM49.90)
3) Microtrend - Mark J. Penn (RM19.90)
4) The Age of Turbulence: Adventures in A New World - Alan Greenspan (RM42.40)
5) Guide to Smart Insurance Planning: Are You Really Covered? - Lee Yow Chuan (RM23.90)
6) Ultimate WordSearch Puzzles (x2 - one for me, one for Fea, hence the price is not to be revealed)
7) Wordsearch: Pocket Puzzles (RM3.00)
8) a purple Bros aluminium water bottle (Kevin's super advance birthday present *grin*)

Total entrance fee I've paid: RM10.00

It's a reading month :-)

I've read Harry Potter and Age of Turbulence out of those books you bought. I also get puzzle books a lot - I need lots of Sudoku to get me through long rides by plane or train.

Hey Mike!

Actually I bought The Age of Turbulence because I just your post a night before I went for my last trip to the book fair! It surprised me because I didn't expect to find it there with 25% off! =) Thanks for introducing the book, I believe it'll be an enlightening read.
