It has been quite a while since I last posted about book-related stuff here. Like I’ve said before, being a senior BS Physical Therapy student got me stuck with huge amounts of research and paper works. I don’t have the time to read leisurely, more so blog about books.
This week is a bit more stressful compared to normal since it’s our prelims week. Everyday, I have to read chapter after chapters of medical books and prepare for practical exams. It’s like my head is bursting with information and my body just want to stop for a moment and relax.
And so I did the only sane thing that I believe would help me alleviate this hell week’s heaviness: I went book-shopping! Well, more like book-hoarding, if you ask me. I went to the nearest mall and entered a bookstore. The minute I got it, I was already half elated. And yes, since I brought my whole wallet with me, I kinda went overboard with the book-buying. I got a total of 8 books including Jerry Spinelli’s Stargirl, Markus Zusak’s The Book Thief, and George Orwell’s classic: 1984. I was also able to complete my ASoIaF set by getting the last 3 books(Game of Thrones and A Clash of Kings in the photo were bought last week). And I also bought the first two books in The Chronicles of Narnia series. I’ve read the already but I don’t have my own copy. So now, I started to buy them.
All in all, I had so much fun looking for these books. Although I still have two days for our prelims, I think I can manage now that I got my fix. What I am not certain about is the time I would be able to read all these books. With all the school work going on, I’d probably be able to open them on our sembreak, which won’t be until October. That sucks, but at least I know that I have my shelves stocked. :)
