Broke on Books

16th July 2009

I have spent way too much money this month on books but what the heck. Just bought “The Second Sex” by Simone de Beauvoir that I have been itching to read for sometime. Also picked up two books at the Strand Book Sale : “Nine by Nine” by Daman Singh and “Endless Love’‘ by Scott Spencer.

“Nine by Nine” was quite unexpected, I must admit. I, as usual, cannot decide if I liked it or didn’t. I didn’t seem to get where the story was going, and if it eventually did reach somewhere, well I think I missed the stop. It left me irritated, as I couldn’t figure out what any of the characters were like in the end.

I also read Eric Segal’s “The Class”, and it made me want to go to Harvard. Again, didn’t like the ending too much. I am too much of a romantic I guess!

Off to watch Harry Potter tonight, but I feel strangely disloyal to the Hogwarts clan. Blame it on Twilight. And oh, I am apparently addicted to glossy magazines. Bad for my budget. Very bad.
