I've been really stingy when it comes to book buying (refer to said entry), but after I've made amends with the evil that is The Overpriced Book Industry through David Sedaris' Naked, I cracked open my piggy bank and bought three actual, non-digitized books. On sale, of course.
Pope Joan by Donna Woolfolk Cross. The story of the supposed first and only woman who became pope. Legend has it that she was exposed when her unborn child fell off her womb while she was riding a horse.
Lipstick Jungle by Candace Bushnell. I was a huge Sex and the City fan, but I never really got around to reading the book it was adapted from. I've seen Lipstick Jungle's season 1 and hated it. Maybe the book will save it for me.
Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides. I've heard good things about this book. I am so glad I got it for only PHP145.
I almost forgot what a delight it is to shop at Book Sale. I used to be a regular but the lack of popular titles and the inconvenience of having to search through dirt to get to gold turned me off. Maybe this time, it'll change.
What about you? What's your latest book purchase? Where do you buy your books? Do you prefer to buy them cheap or brand new?
