I really get excited whenever I go to Booksale, Diplomat or those booksales at National Bookstore, Powerbooks or Goodwill bookstore. Just the thought that I could find a good book at a low price gives me the jitters!

I'm currently looking for classics. I bought Lord of the Flies and Dr. Jekyll and Hyde for 15 pesos at Booksale. I can't wait to build my private library! Now all I need is time to devour my books.
