During lunch break I went to National Bookstore to purchase books. The books that I decided to purchase were:
- Lord of the Flies by William Golding;
- Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro;
- Ramayana by Romesh Dutt;
- and The Complete Novels (Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Mansfiekd Park, Emma, Northanger Abbey, Persuasion) by Jane Austen.
When I went to the counter to pay for the books, the cashier asked me, “Babasahin mo lahat yan sir?”
“Aba bakit ko pa bibilhin ang mga ‘yan na pagkamahal-mahal at pagkabigat-bigat kung i-di-display lang, gaga,” my subconscious replied.
I just smiled and nod in reply.
Do I look like someone na hindi nagbabasa ng libro? In fairness sa akin, since elementary hanggang college kung hindi man highest lagi nasa top 3 ako sa Reading/Reading Comprehension na subject. Hmp. Hehe sorry for being defensive.
Anyways, I used to let my friends borrowed my books but they tend forget to return most of them so I decided not to lend any of my books anymore. Well, except to my partner, na binibigyan ko pa lol!
