In preparation for packing and moving to my new apartment, I had to go to the mall yesterday to buy packaging tape.
2 hours later, I ended up buying:
- Lost Horizon
- Reading Lolita in Tehran
- The Unofficial Guide to Central Italy
- The Unofficial Guide to Paris
- The Crimson and the White
- Grant Writing for Dummies
And mostly from a second-hand bookstore, I may add.
Because I’m planning on going to France and Italy for vacation this year, I bought the two Unofficial Guide books, even though I told myself that I won’t start reading tour books until the summer. They two guide books were so cheap that I really couldn’t resist. The same goes for The Crimson and the White and Reading Lolita in Tehran. The Dummies book I bought for work.
Room, shortlisted for the Booker in 2010 seems very interesting and mysterious, and the Lost Horizon, about the fabled Shangri-La, I recently read about in the book I’m currently reading, The Geography of Bliss.
Oh, and of course, I didn’t forget to buy the 2 rolls of packaging tape.
