Numerous people, including my mother and my boss, have pointedly told me to regulate my book-related expenses. They are concerned about the state of my finances and eating habits. But I just couldn’t resist a sale…I bought these five for only PHP350 (~USD8), each one costing only PHP70 (~USD1.5). It was a great deal! I would have been a fool – a fool! – if I’d let these go. Well. These should tide me over until the next book-buying binge. I’m seeing how long I can go before I buy another book.
