A book baton passed from Kuya Jeff. Readers unite!

Number of books on the shelves:
Shelf in attic: 200++
(if none of the old novels have been sold or thrown away)
Shelf on desk: 100++
(recent novels and an almost complete series of Nancy Drew Case Files)

Those that I own/bought: Hmmm. Difficult. Can't enumerate. Maybe around 60% is bought by me (or I've persuaded someone to buy it for me), the rest are hand-me-downs or gifts.

5 Last books bought:
  1. Angels and Demons (Dan Brown)
  2. The Da Vinci Code (Dan Brown)
  3. The Dante Club (Matthew Pearl)
  4. Conspirators (forgot author)
  5. 100 Love Poems (Pablo Neruda)
Book/s I'm reading now:

  1. Athenian Murders (Jose Carlos Somoza)
  2. English-Tagalog dictionary
Last 5 books read (in no particular order):

  1. The Da Vinci Code (Dan Brown)
  2. Angels and Demons (Dan Brown)
  3. Coraline (Neil Gaiman)
  4. Conspirators - "kinda" read. I gave up. The author incorporates the dialogue in mega-paragraphs. Not very reader-friendly. Buti nalang sale.
  5. The Moth Diaries (Rachel Klein)
  6. The Dante Club (Matthew Pearl). Since number 4 was just a "kinda" read.
Books I'll cherish (in no particular order):

  1. My Dan Brown books.
  2. The Dante Club. Mayee, I trust that it's still alive and well :)
  3. Letters to a Young Poet (Rainer Maria Rilke).
  4. Compiled Poetry (Emily Dickinson) in hardbound.
  5. Seinlanguage by Jerry Seinfeld. Ahh, sarcasm.
  6. The Little Book of Crap. Chips gave this to me as an i-miss-you present. How apt.
  7. My Witching Hour and Lasher (Anne Rice) hardbound versions.
  8. Reader's Digest hardbound almanac of "Unexplained Mysteries"
  9. The Watcher's Guide: Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Golden & Holder)
  10. The Sunnydale High Yearbook (Golden & Holder)
Passing the baton to: Juana. Apester. Jojo. Asphaire. Sapphire.

Sometimes bored. Most of the time oddly alive. Phobic of butterflies. Creatively suppressed. Hungry for coffee and shoes. This is my subconscious talking... at times interrupted by my reality.

soundtrack of the moment
Jealousy, turning saints into the sea. Swimming through sick lullabies, choking on your alibis. But it's just the price to pay, Destiny is calling me. Open up my eager eyes 'cause I'm Mr. Brightside -- "Mr. Brightside" The Killers
