Who bought it: Me:

What is it: It’s about the self-making of a man from a nobody to somebody. It’s a tale of heartbreak and man’s redemption from misfortune. It’s a novel that would both make you laugh and cry.

When: October 16, 2011

Where: Book Sale – SM City Lucena

Why: I already have read this book, but the edition that I found shows a an artwork of a lighthouse. I want the edition so much because I am sure it will bring wonderful memories of our book group’s beach get-away in Alabat Island. And yes, we saw a real lighthouse.

How much: Php 45.00
