Anansi Girl

Neil Gaiman’s Anansi Boys are now available at Fully Booked, which has become my favourite bookstore ever since they bought in Neil for a signing a couple of months ago. And, at the risk of sounding like an advert, FB has the most interesting selection of books; if you have to go to only one bookstore in Manila, make sure it’s this one.

Excuse the giddiness. I finally have a copy of Anansi Boys! It’s a limited edition, meaning if you buy one now, you may also get a letter from Neil which will be inserted in your copy at the cashier’s. I have letter no. 158 of 1000 and, if I ever feel unscrupulous enough, I might put it up on e-Bay, but… I won’t. Hee.

It’s only the first chapter and I’m already smiling and chuckling softly at witty parts. I hope I don’t finish it overnight as I did Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

    Fully Booked Powerplant is like book heaven for me. With all the sci-fi, fantasy, graphic novels AND I saw that they have almost the entire collection of the Tintin books! Now… If I only have the money.

    Kyameel: At one point in time, I had ALL the Tintin comic books. Stupidly, I lent it out to nephews, classmates and teachers, and now I only have 5 in terrible condition. Back in those days, I was able to buy a book for only Php69! Now I’d have to shell out almost Php400 for one. Ack!

    I know. P69 against P400+… tough.

    I was so envious of this guy at the Powerplant branch that he had a basket in tow, and just leisurely drops in the books he liked.

    Damn. If money only came that easily to me.
