Technically the post has nothing to do with the title. It is just a quote that I fell in love with recently. A string of pieced together words that describes me exactly. One of the reasons why I could write out nearly every single thought I have in my head but could never vocalise any of them.
But enough of that. Back to reality, I really should stop browsing at Kino with friends who could just about get me to buy more books than I’ve planned.
Excuse No.1 – You’ve been looking for it since forever right? What if it’s not here the next time you come?
Very true indeed. I have been looking out for Mastiff and this edition of Fire and Hemlock at every visit but they are never there… And this time there’s still a copy of Mastiff left because Marisa actually ordered 2 copies instead of 1 this time around! (Definitely should get it while I still can!)
Excuse No. 2 – You have to get a book from Kino when you visit. It’s like, the golden rule.
Oh yes… NEVER LEAVE A BOOKSTORE WITHOUT BUYING A BOOK. Haha… Seems to be true whenever I hang out with Nuri at KLCC. It’s always Books + Food + Movies whenever we hang out, and never in the same order. And we both have more to add to our stack of ‘to read’ books at home.
Excuse No.3 – They are on discount!!!
I always check out the books on promotion every month just because I could justify spending more on books because they are cheaper. The biggest perpetrator of my eternal splurging on books would be myself. I have no one but myself to blame for my incessant inability to think whenever I am surrounded by books.
Excuse No. 4 – The books jumped off the shelves and hijacked my bag.
Complete denial. Sanity level is decreasing. Hallucinations prone to occur.
