Bookish Me

As far as I can remember, I heart books since I was in grade school. At that time, the favorite among the youngster was Sweet Valley series. Naturally I was reading several of Sweet Valley Twins; this made me a frequent borrower in our school's library. In fact, I can say that reading is one of my few hobbies that I'm planning to keep for years.

When I was in high school, my love for books didn't fade. This time apart from Sweet Valley High and University, I've been reading Sweet Dreams series as well. I even have a friend who has a collection of Sweet Dreams where every summer vacation, I always borrowed her books.

Years passed and it still didn't change. The expensive books that I purchased were the Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer. I'm more into fiction books rather than non-fiction although there are instances when I find myself having fun when reading biographies of famous people in the world. For instance, I'm intrigued by Obama's background since his the very first African-American president. I'm planning to read some African American books which are hopefully cheaper if I opted to join a book club (online). They provide discounts and even you can select what type of club you want to me part of depending on your interest. Neat huh?! It's like having an organization at school but this time you can enjoy being a member via the net. Hopefully they can provide free shipping for their members outside the US...hehehe.
