Super Excited for Shopping.

So, we aka Eliza and I are going to Big Bad Wolf Book Sale tomorrow morning. We already made our plans aka schedule sometime around midnight earlier this week.

By schedule, we mean, what time would we be leaving. What time we expect to get there. How much time should we add on in case of getting lost.  Directions.

What we need. Bottled water. Buns. Comfy shoes. A big big bag on wheels for the books. Coffee. Directions.

We planned to be there for 4-5 hours. I plan to get 20 books, maybe throw in a cookbook from Anna Olson because Mama expressed interest.

The funny thing about Eli and I, is that we like to plan our trips. Ever since high school, even for the weekly bowling trip with school's bowling club. We're the girls who text each other:

"About to leave house in 10."

"Just left house."

And so on.

So, we plan to get there around 9-ish, with coffee in our veins and buns in our tummy. I'll be heading for the fiction and she'll be heading for, in her words, poetry and dead people's books.

And then, I'm going to drag her to get some takoyaki. And lunch. I'll be bringing the camera, in case I wanna snap any pictures of the most important day of the year. 

Thank you for your suggestions the other day and after putting aside the ones I've read, which reminds me.

Yes, I love the young adult genre but before that, I was in love with Jeffrey Archer, Dianna Wyne Jones and read stuffs by Trudi Canavan and some others which is why I've read half of what you guys suggested. Oh oh, Furree, have you read The Prodigal Daughter by Archer? The reason I like the YA genre is because it has the mix of love and fantasy that seems perfect to me.

Living my teenage years, yo.

Anyway, I made a list of books I'll be on the look out for:

Books by Carol Goodman

Mortal Instruments series

Dead to You by  Lisa McMann

Dreamless by Josephine Angelini

Between the Lines by Jodi Picoult

Misery and Pet Sematery by Stephen King

Grace by Richard Paul Evans

Emotionally Weird by Kate Atkinson

Intensity by Dean Koontz

Jewel of St Petersburg and The Concubine's Secret by Kate Furnivall

Memoirs of a Geisha

Tales of Beetle the Bard by JK Rowling. 

YES, THIS BOOK IS AVAILABLE THERE. I know, just trying to capture last bits of Harry Potterdom. The rest, I'll just browse and look for ones that seem interesting.

I'm really really really excited. I can just scream. Once this is over, I can buckle down for my tests and finals.

Squeeeee. Off to bed so I can have enough energy to buy books tomorrow.

OMG. You're gonna have so much fun. This is so cool! I hope you find all the books you're looking out for! I want Beedle The Bard so bad. :(

And yes take pictures of all the books you buy, and the entire place in general! I am so curious as to what it looks like. Heaven, probably. Hahaha.

You're really taking this seriously here. I didn't know people still took books so seriously, it makes me happy. I hope you find some you really love.

I mean, I like Jodi Picoult, and it was a cute read, but it was very cheesy -_-' Not sure it's something worth buying. And I have Tales of Beedle the Bard (:

Have fun! And, if you get the St Petersburg one, do share what you think of it... sounds interesting ^^
