A bit overdue but, last Sunday, my brother and I went to the last day of the National Bookstore Warehouse Sale. It was a bit of an overwhelming experience, because we both didn't know where it was (we took a cab and felt really wasteful), and I honestly did not expect it to be in an actual fourth-floor warehouse! There was a lot of people and boxes and boxes of books and other goods, all priced down for the holidays. Whenever a staff opened another box, people would flock and fight over its contents like Battle Royale or something. Some had boxes full to the brim - perhaps they owned a bookstore too, that's the only explanation. I met some old school friends from UP too. I managed to pick up a few things...

- Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell audiobook - I'm not really into motivational stuff, but it's 7 CDs for P100 (around $2.5), that's a bargain.
- Pacific Rims, Rafe Bartholomew - Basketball! In the Philippines! I've long wanted this book alright.
- Inseparable: Desire Between Women in Literature, Emma Donoghue - OH YES. My roommate was a bit scandalized by the pictures, but I fail to see it, haha.
- Dancing in the Dark: A Cultural History of the Great Depression, Morris Dickstein - Woops, my love for this era is showing...
- The Aeneid, Virgil - S C R E A M I NG
- Jane Eyre, Charlotte Bronte - P50! I really lucked out on this, it's a very pretty copy.
- How to Read Literature Like a Professor, Thomas Foster - I'm reading it now and it's both funny and informative?
 
My brother the ass bought a Gio Ponti design book for P500, and made me pay for it. Ponti, more like Ponzi, I thought this was a sale.
 
Anyway, my review for Smaller and Smaller Circles is almost finished - it became a paper somewhere along the way and I really want to add references but I can't find what I want. Also, I started this last weekend.
