Apprently, that dang book sale we saw yesterday’s gonna be up for just two days, which means that today was the last day we were ever gonna see their ultra-cheap books. The moment they transfer into the Faculty Center (which is this real dark, badass-in-a-frightening-way labyrinth…er, building in the Uni which houses the…well, the faculty) the books’ prices are going to sky-rocket back to their original prices. Presented with such a situation, you can probably guess what Lightning and I did.
Yeah, we bought some. Presenting my new books…
These are OhMyGosh! The Incredible Lightness of Being Burgis! by April Yap and Sexy, Sassy, Singularly Happy by Marivi Blanco. Honestly, I have no idea what they’re about. This is what happens when you’re this book-starved person who sees a bargain — like, a REAL bargain. You buy things just because they’re cheap.
This baby here’s April Yap’s The Incredible Lightness of Being Burgis!. I bought this one ’cause of the Kundera reference and I just love Milan Kundera. Aaand, because of the word ‘burgis’ in the title. I’ve always thought of burgis as a funny word. Burgis, by the way, is the Filipino slang for bourgeois.
This one’s a book by Marivi Blanco called Sexy, Sassy, Singularly Happy. No idea on what the book’s about but I guess it’s quite obvious that it’s about the single woman. Like a self-help guide on how to make the most out of your single-hood (read: on how not to be bitter about being single). Disclaimer: I did not buy this because I am single. Although, that is true (that I am single). However, I am not bitter. A friend of mine is, so maybe I’ll lend this to her someday.
