The MPH Distributors Warehouse Sale is coming again and my head is already busy listing up books that I've been lusting on for so long. The fact is, I still haven't finish reading another three books that I bought from the last warehouse sale; Coelho's Brida, Wahlstrom's The Tao of Writing & Pahrol's Dilema Melayu-Islam. I am currently re-reading Covey's The 8th Habit due to some reasons. But, I got a pretty good news from Liyana that I might be getting my maiden proof-reading part-time job salary next week. So, I'm hoping that I manage to buy one or two of these titles;

1. Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen
2. The Reader by Bernhard Schlink
3. Reading Lolita in Tehran by Azar Nafisi
4. The Bastard of Istanbul by Elif Shafak
5. The Prince by Nicollo Machiavelli
6. Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert T. Kiyosaki
7. Middlesex by Jeffret Eugenides
8. The Winner Stands Alone by Paulo Coelho

I know, I know this will cost hundreds, and obviously I can't afford it now. But, a man can dream, no?






Update: Watch out for tomorrow's StarTwo!
Update: Already checked StarTwo. The books in the list are plain boring.

in my opinion, the best fiction listed is reading lolita in tehran. Very insighful in a gruelling grudging way.

jgn bacala poor dad rich dad too, buang masa je.

huiyo, ur a fan of Paulo Coelho. mesti the alchemist n terus melakat niiii...

i used to love arundhaty roy until i read books from Louis de Berniere. serious shit off the hook. like drugs lidat. but u need a good dictionary la while reading.

Afiq Deen,

Still awake, huh?
Yeap, a friend of mine suggest that title to me too. Hahaha! When a reader suggesting a book the way you and my friend had described it, I know it a must-read for me. Hahaha!

Buang masa? Really? Or you're not into Trump-business thingy?

Yeah! Paulo Coelho! you're a fan too eh? When reading Paulo's writings, rasa macam it's a very honest-to-goodness experience. Pheww... I just can re-read them novels over & over again, and them boojs will tell diff stories each time!

The God of Small Things? Hahaha! I knew the author and the title but never read it tho! Louis de Berniere? Never EVER heard of him! I should Google it down now! Hahaha!

Thanks for sharing!!

Liyana,
Ahahaha! Really?
See? I think it's a really nice book to ignite the Trump in you. I did read several pages in MPH and I think its kinda cool. :)

Yeps! Reading Lolita is good and was highly debated in Iran. They consider it as insulting and a Bush' propaganda to attack Iran. Pheww..

I Love controversy!
