Anything steering clear of the mainstream is always refreshing. And lately, as strongly influenced by the hubdub, we've been slightly on the lookout for anything that's a far cry from the conventional. And no, it's not a shot at coolness as evidenced by my status updates about Mara's supposed death, a weekly dose of Gossip Girl and Facebook wall splashed with Instagram photos. So, I made it a point to visit Bookay-ukay. It was out of the way, late (according to my mom's time frame) and traffic, so I had to throw in a little tantrum and muster the most angelic face I can (which is hard) just so I can convince my mom to squeeze in a trip to the bookstore. She agreed! We weren't familiar with the place (which is weird considering my sister went to UP Diliman for college) so we had to bother those people jogging around UP for directions. A few U-turns and we spotted the place. I hopped down the car even if it wasn't properly parked yet. I usually walk in an extra slow motion because of the bump but not this time. I was excited!

“Rage against conformity. Rise above mediocrity. Read." according to a sign in the bookstore. Exactly, exactly.

Hallelujah to the stacks of secondhand books! Well-chosen secondhand books to be exact. Every bibliophile will get their slice as the books varies from Ernest Hemingway, John Irving, Karl Marx, Jessica Zafra to Jane Austen. I was a happy camper!

I happily bagged the following books:
Vanity Fair by William Thackeray
As If Jesus Walked on Earth by Adrian Bantjes
Ravelstein by Saul Bellow (Nobel Prize winner)
Persuasion by Jane Austen
Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason by Helen Fielding
