i've gotto stop...BUYING BOOKS!!!

i've really got to stop buying books. i have got piles and piles of books that i have yet to finish reading (especially Dragon Rider and The Dark Materials Trilogy) and guess wat? i've gotten yet another pile of books from the book sale by MPH over this weekend.

Some of the more interesting books that i can't wait to read are:
The Complete Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis, Pauline Baynes
The Devil Wears Prada : A Novel by Lauren Weisberger
The Leap by Jonathan Stroud
Buried Fire by Jonathan Stroud
Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants by Ann Brashares
Peter and the Starcatchers by Dave Barry, Ridley Pearson

I'm really excited about starting on Peter and the Starcatchers... seems that it is a pretty highly fascinating, interesting and well-written book on the prequel of Peter Pan and how he got to Neverland. And Buried Fire is pretty well-received too.

There's a few interesting ones that i have to leave behind cos i actually set a budget for myself... MPH was offering The Rule of Four by Ian Caldwell, Dustin Thomason at $10... but i kinda figured that i will get a copy another time as it is not so affordable as the rest which were priced below $10. Viewed as a "Da Vinci Code" type of story that combines history and suspense.
