My obssesion #1 : Books!

Hello jelly-o,
Just came back from my routine weekly daddy dating with papa and little sister. We ate a wholesome goodness of Kenny Rogers. I must say that their cooking has gotten less shittier than the usual meal they used to served. Well done K.R!

After eating , we went to MPH , mostly because I just had HAD to buy a book. I dont know why , i think i might have develop somekind of compulsive disorder towards purchasing a book in consistent manner.

Invariably , after browsing for awhile , ransacking section after section , leafing one book after another , i finally stop and startled. My eyes were fixed as this very book , just one copy left because i cant see any other duplication near this particular edition. I dont know if anybody ever feel the strong sensation of being overwhelmingly mesmerize by a book , but i sure do.

Somehow i felt connected to this book because it seemed so curiously familiar. I read the title "Her Fearful Symmetry" and aha! the receptacle behind my mind that stored past data flick and at that instant i knew that this must be it , the book ive been waiting for.


The cover itself have bound me in a way i cant describe with words. It has this mix feelings of longing , misery , agony and somewhat crestfallen.

Written diligently by the none other than Audrey Niffenegger , one of my favorite author.

The name sounds familiar? Of course it does , she is also the writer of the most complex but romantic story ever produced ; The Time Traveller's Wife which i have reread almost 3rd time now.

"What book is this about? How come there is nothing written behind? Is this even a book?" Papa said in disbelief while inspecting the book for details. I just grinned and walk towards the counter. I just know that this is going to be another great story to be read.

At first i was kindda unsure to purchase this book because it is so damned expensive compared to the usual book i always buy which cost almost half of the price of this very book and of course all the buying would be out from papa's pocket , but then papa permitted this book and paid for it. Im such a daddy's girl. I know i am.

Anyways , earlier this week i went to Popular Pyramid and bought another book. Sometimes i would just absent mindedly choose a book and pay it. Everything happened under my conscious mind. I bought Man & Wife by Tony Parsons because from experienced i knew that his writing would make me shed my tears like a baby bear having a splinter stuck in its paw.

Another Tony Parsons book that i already owned. Gotta collect the whole collection of it.

I am such a nerd. Do you still wanna be my friend now that u already learn this hidden obsession of mine towards book?

On a separate note ,

Here is another piece of my class sketches. I knew she didnt realized it but this very phrase she uttered was somehow inspiring to say the least.
