of the new books!

I had $30 worth of Kinokuniya book vouchers (thanks to SJ jie for the Christmas present!), 20% discount coupons from the 8days mag, and Knife of Dreams‘s small paperback edition hasn’t been released yet.

So.. I got this.


Neil Gaiman’s American Gods.

I was planning to buy Smoke and Mirrors at first, but nah. Short stories aren’t my type. Between American Gods and Neverwhere, American Gods won out. Next time man, next time round I’ll get ya.

And this.


Memoirs of a Geisha.

Time to read it before the movie comes! I’ve only read like three chapters so far, but it’s an interesting read. I’m trying to slow my pace of reading and try to visualise the various scenes depicted inside. Makes for better appreciation of the book, I think.

New food for the bookworm 🙂 The queue at Kino was horrendous yesterday though, brr. Lucky XQ was around, and he scouted around for the shortest queue.

And I still had a $5 gift voucher from Borders. So hmm.. I got this.


Crying Out Love, in the Centre of the World VCD.

I’d wanted to catch this one the big screen initially, but as usual.. I-couldn’t-find-anyone-to-watch-it-with-me-and-it-went-offscreen-yet-again. Blah. Finally finished watching it in the afternoon, and it’s every bit as good as I expected it to be. Now I regret not buying the DVD version, argh 😦
