A Treasure of Gold Found. Djadan! This is the balikbayan box full of books which Jun Lana presented to us immediately after he opened the door to his apartment. This might sound a bit exaggerated, but my heart skipped a bit after seeing the box (no kidding). hehehe! I could have screamed and jumped to my hearts' content at that very moment I saw it but thought otherwise due to some little propriety I have. I opted to compose myself. You see, I never owned that much number of books in a day. And for free??? Come on. I must be the luckiest person! Oh hell yea...I was.
The Two Towers of Unread Books. Okay, it was Jessica Zafra who said it first in Twisted 8 but you see, immediately after Zoe, Sel, and Nat went home, I started piling my "new possessions" into two towers. I have arranged them according to "my priority of books to read" the bottom being the first book in the queue. Okay, granting that I am a sloth and I have barely time for reading these days because of work, grad school, and extra writing jobs, I am very positive that I will be able to pass my 2books-in-a-month-challenge. So with more books to read, I guess it would not hurt to read (at least) 3 books in a month! How's that for a challenge?
Real Treats. Most of the books inside the box are fiction (gen fic, young adults, chick lit, etc) a few travel books, and a bio which were awesome. But underneath the box, I found some books on digital videomaking some which I consider a "must-have-books" if you are a film buff. You'll never go wrong with Roger Ebert (my opinion only). I've been wanting to produce a film-docu one of these days and having these books is a good start.
So again, THANK YOU Jun Lana for these treats!
