Book-sutoori

Saturday, January 17, 2009
I certainly heard about a statistic saying that average Malaysian reads 1 book every year.
I'm not sure when, but the time I heard that, a form of 'resist' developed inside me which asking me to prove that to be wrong.

That sure would happen to anyone, doesn't it?
But then, I don't like the idea of reading just to prove some lame statistics to be wrong. LoL.

Prologue ends =D

It is Saturday! This morning, I had a very nice long sleep for the week. Who don't like sleeping? Tell me.
I woke up finding that my housemate seems so... restless? That's a good adjective. Ahahaha! I knew it would become like this, so I hurried to tidy up my room n go to bath.
I spend a couple of minutes later to hear a story of how 6 hours of a day are spent easily.

"Take it easy! Is that worth telling?"

It is actually the night before when my mentioned housemate suggested KLCC to find our books for our English class. Yes, the '6 hours story' is in fact refering to the time my mentioned housemate waited for me.
After we had our 'breakfast', we set our steps to KLCC and this of course by travelling through a series of bus, KTM, and LRT.
About the English class, our teachers has assigned us to find a novels to be criticiced on. Ahaha! I love criticicing! That's what I've been doing all along these years! Critics n critics.

KLCC meanwhile is our final destination since all branches of Popular and MPH bookstore no longer have the books we wanted. I never thought of how nice it is the bookstore at KLCC, but I do regret not knowing it earlier.
Once we arrived at KLCC, we head to the bookstore, led by the same 'outsider' during my birthday mini-party. =D

The place is... Kinokuniya Bookstore. If I jump to conclusion, I would say, "I would like to work there as part-time job right away", but not yet. Oh I just did? lol nvm.


It sounds like a japanese bookstore to me. One thing for certain, there is no Malay material in there... at all! There are 2 ATM-like machine to search books, and it gives out a map to locate the book within the bookstore, just like how ATM machine gives out receipt.
Among the books available are... English, Japanese, Chinese.. and one more language which I can't read = =. Korean perhaps?

HOw should I say... there have no other nicer bookstore I've been before. I can name any novel that I remember in my head, and they appeared, most of the times at least.
Well, I did wonder whether it is becoz they hav no one to buy them XD. But that doesn't seems to be the case.

So, I chose the book that I've wanted so long. Memoir of a Geisha. It's a COOL story abt a profession called Geisha in past time Japan. Almost Cinderella-like, except more dramatic.
Well, that's what I've been told =D.
It has sooo many pages which is soo NICE! I can spend long time to read it. Too bad my English assignment is due a few weeks later = =.


Each of us got our own books it seems. Before we go back, I took note of some Japanese lesson book... hehe. Dont't wanna stop at just the LVl 4 Japanese Proficiency.


[ps: laptop = book. Yes!]
[ps2: To my colleque, I havent seen Memoir of Geisha movie yet. So its fair! I chose it after researching through summary of the novels]
