Books Lover

I went to 1Utama today and what else I shop ? Books baby, boooookkkksss! My love for books started when I was small but I very seldom buy books that time. Due to finacial issue and the book itself was very expensive. I would go to library to read and borrow home. I love the Famous Five and Enid's Blyton books. Both were my Bible. I even played out those story with my little sister.

As I grow up, books for rent shop came popping everywhere. It was a very good idea. I started to read John Grisham, Sidney Sheldon, Anne Rice and Stephen King's books. I finished the whole series of John Grisham and Sidney Sheldon books. They are very dear to me as I love lawyer and pretty ladies story. hahahaha but that dosen't mean I like a lawyer in real life. I seldom read Anne Rice and even seldom for Stephen King books because they were scary and sometimes hard to imagine.

As I started to work I bought a lots of book. I love Lord of The Rings(also very hard to understand and imagine even after the movie cames out), John Grisham and Sidney Sheldon still, Robert Ludlum, Dan Brown, Mitch Albom and some other new author. Just recently I've mentioned Shantaram, one of my greatest findings(I meant I didn't know it was such a good book man until I read it and fall in love with it!);dreamcatcher is reading it as well). And today I bought 2 books namely Star Wars The New Jedi Order: Hero's Trial and My Life by Bill Clinton for my sister very belated birthday present. I'm currently eyeing 4th of July. Interesting but about murder.

After I finish Shantaram, I'm heading for the Star Wars book which I bought today(will buy more if interesting) and some of my sister's books. I've got 1 problem though. I must buy a new shelf. The old one's full of our story books, college notes, travel brochure, dictionaries(we event salvage an old dict from my grandpa) and atlases. Hurry Ikea, I'm waiting for a nicer design, current one not my type.

p/s: Books are still expensive nowdays. Hope 'government' can read this and make a change. There's many people like to read but it's an expensive hobby/education.
