Yay Moleskine + Booksale Book Hauls

My Own Moleskines!
Just like what I confessed to Sir Ralph of Comatoria, I don't think I can summon the nerve to write on these precious moleskines. I have bad handwriting and I make erasures like mad! But I can't just have it laying around unused, too, as it defeats the purpose of having a moleskine. Maybe I'll use 1 moleskine notebook so I can practice writing poetry? Hmmmmm! *scratches imaginary beard*

Life of Pi (Deluxe Hardbound, Illustrated) -Yann Martel


Once again, thank you TopazHorizon and Avalon.Ph!


In other news, I promised myself not to buy new books, but I couldn't help it. I went to Booksale NCCC before going to Chi's CineAste film screening at StreetCafe, Jacinto (I watched "Cabaret" 1975, before I had to run out because my sister sounded very urgent with her texts-- which turned out to be a fake emergency! Arrgh! I missed the 2nd half of the movie!)

Anyway, here are my finds weee:

Just Jane: A Novel of Jane Austen's Life - Nancy Moser
The Queen's Fool - Philippa Gregory
Mr. Muo's Traveling Couch - Dai Sijie <3

  7. I love moleskins too! I picked up a couple when I went to the BEA convention in New York last May. I haven't used them yet - I guess I feel the same way you do =)

    The books you bought look really good.
