.. a gift you can open again and again. :)
The Truant Trio went for a trip to KLCC today and stepped into Kinokuniya. Johann Sebastian Bach’s piece -‘Air’ from “Suite No.3 in D major” was played in the bookstore lending a very peaceful and intellectual touch to the atmosphere. I recognised it well for it was one of the soundtracks in the movie ‘Se7en‘ at the library scene, when Morgan Freeman was doing some research on the seven deadly sins.
Johann Sebastian Bach – Air
Browsing through the aisles, my eyes were immediately glued on to several interesting titles. If I had the cash, I would have bought them all. Unfortunately I’m no millionaire and I had to be more selective in my choice of purchase.
Buying a book for myself requires consideration of these aspects (in no particular order);
1. The Font
2. The Price
3. The Thickness
4. What I can gain from the book – Humour? Life lessons? Knowledge? Visual pleasure? LOL
I ended up leaving Kinokuniya empty-handed. With an ounce of dissatisfaction. However, opportunity presented itself the second time when I suddenly remembered that I have my ATM card with me!! Woohoooo..
I withdrew some money and this time, at The Times (the bookstore near the surau), I managed to buy one of the books I liked – Paulo Coelho’s ‘Like The Flowing River’. I also bought a book for BroDy’s birthday present next week entitled ‘The 7 highly effective habits of teens’. I just hope that he’ll read it. Well, even if he doesn’t, I could still have a peek.🙂
PS: Caught a glimpse of Omar Shariff today, Kefli AF at Mid Valley the other day.
