An underwhelming bookish update.

Posted: September 18, 2011 in Uncategorized

It’s been a while since I posted here, and yes, I have been reading. I finished Superfreakonomics a couple of weeks back, and I haven’t really bothered writing about it, largely because I was underwhelmed. I did find a few chapters particularly interesting—especially those bits about drunk walking, spotting a terrorist, and global warming. I’m currently reading a couple of titles on my bedside and on my Kindle, and a proper update should be in the works soon enough.

I also dropped by the Manila International Book Fair (MIBF) today. I was also underwhelmed by the selections on sale at the National Bookstore booth, largely because there were no travel books up for grabs. I did manage to get a few titles though, which are:

I’m glad to have seen that copy of Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth”, as I’ve been berating myself for not getting it in Monterey several years ago, which was already a bargain at $12. At least this one’s only P150. The Houdini Solution and The World According to Twitter, I thought, may be beneficial for work, and I just got them each at P30. What the World is Reading is a complimentary copy.

Time to get cracking.
