Today's Buy: 12 July 07

@ MPH Subang Parade

Two bookstore strikes in a week! My wallet is protesting loudly but I'm pretending not to hear.

In The Country of Men
Hisham Matar
RM35.50

I've seen this previously in the big version, and was tempted by the back cover blurb. This book is the nice small size I prefer. I've never read anything remotely Libyan before, am looking forward to reading this.





Special Topics in Calamity Physics
Marisha Pessl
RM35.50

Aha. This book looks yummy, and the title just gets your attention. I've read that the book is good, but its massive girth (it's 669 pages thick) has made me balk at getting it before.

This time around I saw this on the cover : ' "Made me stay up all night reading. I loved this book" - Audrey Niffenegger'. Since her book made me stay up all night, I'm trusting Audrey on this one.

Confessions of an Air Hostess
Marisa Mackle
RM19.90

Yet another Little Black Dress. I'm done with the one I bought previously, so on the next!

not really. I do this normally. A very very bad habit. Some girls are shoe-shopping fanatic, some are bag-shopping fanatic. I'm a book-shopping fanatic. What a geek.
