I have a humble haul today. I've been busy with school lately--my thesis is killing me--so I haven't had much time to go book shopping or do any kind of shopping in general, not that I could afford it since I'm a student of meager means. But I digress.
As usual, my books were bought secondhand from Booksale. Here are my latest acquisitions:
- The Chocolate War by Robert Cormier - This children's classic was a steal at PHP 10 which is about 23 cents (USD). The book is actually set in a boys' boarding school, and I've heard that it's quite dark.
- Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison - Frankly, I have no idea what this book is about. I saw it on the Currently Reading section of a follow book blogger (sorry, I forgot who), and, two days later, I found a copy of it at the secondhand bookstore. I've always confused Invisible Man with THE Invisible Man by H.G. Wells which I also aim to read this 2011. On a different note, I can't find an actual physical copy of the latter, so I might have to settle for an e-book from Gutenberg.
- Lighthousekeeping by Jeanette Winterson - I opened the first page and was hooked. Such poetic language. I'm really excited for this one. I might not post my thoughts on this, though, since it's not a/related to a classic.
What about you? What are your latest acquisitions? I'd love to hear about them.
