Independent People – Halldór Laxness

Who bought it: Me. I am back to the book hoarder that I used to be. What is it: It should be an Icelandic novel. I saw the name Bjartur. Reminds me of Bjork. When: February 8, 2011 Where: Books for Less – SM Mall of Asia Why: I went to this mall to have my copy of War And Peace replaced. It was lacking around 50 pages. While waiting for the bookstore staff to get a hold of those people in their enigmatic warehouse, I went around the mall. I found this secondhand bookstore. I saw the book under a stack. I pulled it out. It’s written by a Nobel laureate. I fell in love with the cover. I winced a little, but I still bought it. It’s a good thing I did because when I went back to the other bookstore to get my new copy of War And Peace, I was told to wait until Friday. How much: Php 248.00 (Image courtesy of Tower.com)
