"Yada yada, Ye Crap Too Much!!"

...so here's a short one =P.

Currently am in BookCrossing, went to the July Meetup [ 25.07.04 ] at A&W, opposite Amcorp mall and wowwee, it's book galore, people! Released 3 books and took back 4. So far have read 3 1/2 of them. They are *drumroll*

Tuesdays With Morrie = V touching and feel good book, abt life, truly a must to read.
Katherine = quite nice, half fiction, half fact, a lot of injustice in it, after Communist China.
Welcome To The World, Baby Girl! = longish book, groaned at the font size, but it's worth it. love this book!
Four Sisters of Hofei = half read, can be rather draggy, but it's okay i suppose.

Dragged Charlene along, lol, but she's a bookworm too so didn't think she minded much.  Oh, she's in too... There's meetup next week if nothing goes wrong! Before I forget, in Amcorp, there are two shops selling books cheap, one is Pay Less Books and the other, can't recall. Bookworm haven! *faint out of joy* haha. Anyway, related, doing a trade with
WittySquirrel, havent sent my part (Wild Swans & She's Come Undone) due to busy-ness or whenever am free, the post office would be close (harrumph), but have received his books! Here they are:

 

Thanks Andy!

Hmm, haven't met many booklovers in college, well, they read a lot of comics whereas have read mostly Doraemon and Shin Chan. The rest i know nada abt. Boohoo. Gonna crash someone's comic bookshelf someday (yes, this is a warning for all comic book collectors. Beware! Thou hath been warned. Bwahahahhaa!)

Other news, yesterday, a family came to see my house (yep, sellin' it, interested anyone? leave a msg here =P). They came up the stairs and as usual, am on pc, so I swivelled my chair 'round to greet them and found myself staring into a vaguely familiar face... Turns out she was in the same secondary school AND club with me, though she's my senior. Sch a coincidence (said this so many times yesterday, lol). But it's nice to meet someone who had a connection with the 'past'. Am the type who goes gaga over reunions, though preferably 10 years later where everyone will exclaim "Wah, you're so thin/tall/unblur already!" or "You're famous! Can I get your autograph??". Yep, dream on...

Yap, OUT! (Chuh, no wonder the Chinese can't do the "Seacrest, out!" thing - American Idol fans will know what am talking abt =P)
