Ah the sweet smell of old books! I know sniffing them so vigorously might not be so good for my sinuses, but oh what the heck, I don’t get to read many books on paperback. All I have to make do with is eBooks, and it gets really tedious sometimes reading from a screen for 2 to 3 hours. When I read novels on print, I used to go on for 6 to 7 hours straight! My personal record is 9 hours (without food or sleep or bathroom) but that one time my Mom confiscated all my books and locked them in a trunk because she believed I had gone clinically insane. Thank you Stephen King; you showed me what real addiction is.
Anywho, today I went to one of the biggest annual book fairs that my country has to offer; the University of the Punjab Book Fair. Oh yes, one of those times when I get to be proud of my institution.
My friends and I, we decided that we shall buy as much books as our wallets may allow us, so these are some of the novels that we’re gonna savor in the coming weeks.
Can you believe it that we found most of these at a measly price of Rs. 50/book? That’s like half a dollar each. It was Literary Heaven for me! Well considering my current collection of eBooks, my own paperbacks, and now these, I have enough books to last me this whole year! Woot woot!!
So tell me, which one of these should I read next after I’ve finished “The Martian” by Andy Weir? Haaa, decisions decisions. Help a sister out, huh?
