Bookish Friends are Good, Good Friends

This is why I love attending book club meetings

First is, of course, the company. Second, the bookish talks. Third, food. And fourth, free books! Look here, these are not so common books. Snowdrops by A. D. Miller – Okay, this is recently published, and it’s shortlisted for last year’s Booker. What makes this uncommon is that it’s an advance reading copy. This one is given to me by Big Brother KD. He wants to buddy read this just to see if there’s any major difference between such a copy and the final copy. Given on a book club meeting last January 24. Growth of the Soil by Knut Hamsun – this is uncommon because this book was never carried by local book stores. That is according to Atty. Monique. She bothered to ask this because I wishlisted this book and I want this so bad. This copy, by the way, is given by Kwesi. Don’t ask me why his name is Kwesi. I sort of psyched him to get me this copy as a Christmas gift by giving him a Book Depository link …
