Wednesday Diaries: Harry Potter, old books & new, and a wishlist

Hohoho! Because we, Filipinos, are more excited about Christmas than the rest of the world (we start celebrating in September, haha) ~ MERRY CHRISTMAS! :) I've recently finished rereading Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone(the book club will be having a Harry Potter Christmas) and I enjoyed it, although I was not as impressed as I had been the first time I read it which was like, five years ago.  Still, the spells are a delight to read (I am tempted to use the limb-lock spell for the stray cat who kept trying to get inside the house) and I was always fascinated by Quidditch. It was a fun r...

BOOK BUYS (10)

  For several weeks now, I have been trying my luck on finding a copy of this book at Booksale: Finally, last weekend, the hunt was over. Most of my bookish buddies over at the book club have been raving about the genius of David Mitchell and I can't avoid feeling out-of-place sometimes. Hee. ;) But now, I already have my own copy and I can't wait to read. I MUST READ it first before I go see the movie, which, by the way, is showing on the 26th. Will I be able to catch up? We will see. ;)

lookie here at what I got! ♥

[caption id="attachment_847" align="aligncenter" width="300"] weeee! :)[/caption] Finally, the (not-so) long wait is over. Earlier this morning, I held in my hands this reading gadget I have been coveting praying for since last year. The Lord is indeed gracious to me for giving me generous friends such as a church-mate and fellow IVCFer (short for InterVarsity Christian Fellowship) who's now in the US and gave me this wonderful gift.  I am overwhelmed by God's surprises! Let's take a look at what's inside: YAAAY!!! ♥ I still have to find time, though, to read the user's guide, considering tha...

Books in the Mail (1)

Actually, it is just one book in the mail that arrived yesterday. But I figured that since I have been posting about books in the mail for quite sometime, maybe I should just make this a semi-regular feature in the blog, just like Tina's In My Mailbox in One More Page. ;) So, starting this year, Books in the Mail will be appearing once in a while in this humble blog to feature books I will receive through courier, regardless of whether the delivery man is cute or not. Haha. Ah, just another reason to hoard books, don't you think? ;) For this year's first book in the mail, it's the sensational ...
