Additions to my skyscraper of a to-read stack: Somebody invent a word for a person who’s always lucky in secondhand bookshops! I stumbled upon a hardback copy of Audrey Niffenegger’s Her Fearful Symmetry the other day when I was randomly browsing for back issues of a music magazine. The jacket’s a bit torn and creased, but other than that the baby’s in good condition. I got it for only 100 pesos! If brand new this will cost at most 500php. I’ve been wanting to get my hands on this after I read The Time Traveler’s Wife.
Another addition is The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson. A friend of mine also got it from a secondhand bookstore, and after reading it he gave it to me. He said it reminded him of a funeral story I wrote a while ago. xD
