Day 02 — Not including food, blogging or television, my most guilty pleasure (this includes chocolate)
A housemate approached me the other day because he saw me reading in our house’s common area. He said if it was okay for him to borrow some of my books. Since he was cute, I gave his the sweetest “sure” possible.
He was surprised with what he saw.
Since I was sharing a room with three other people and the space is really limited, I keep all of my books in a collapsible box that I got from Divisoria. He just said, “wow, talagang binibili mo yan? Ang hilig mo siguro talagang magbasa. (Wow, you really buy your books? You really love to read, huh.)”
Every time someone give me that expression, I just told them, “oh, not much, I am just reading so I will be able to do something.” Sometimes, being a book lover is an intimidating thing, I don’t know why.
But honestly, I love books. I love reading. As of writing this, I am reading two books, the first one, I read at home, it is about a Korean Queen. The other book, I read in the office. Yes, I read in the office. Multitasking 101.
Maybe people are fond of going to the malls or partying but I love the idea that you will just sit somewhere with hot coffee and a good book.
