More booksPicked up a couple of new (used) books over the weekend, a hardbound copy of Dave Eggers' A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius and Douglas Coupland's debut novel Generation X, which looked like one of those software manuals from the '80s. Got both books for only Php650 off Avalon.ph, ayos na ayos na!
4. Actually, many of you might want to skip much of the middle, namely pages 209-301, which concerns the lives of people in their early twenties, and those lives are very difficult to make interesting, even when they seemed interesting to those living them at the time.
5. Matter of fact, the first three or four chapters are all some of you might want to bother with. That gets you to page 109 or so, which is a nice novella sort of length. Those first four chapters stick to one general subject, something manageable, which is more than what can be said for the book thereafter.
so you bought the heartbreaking na.. was thinking of buying it.. but i'm on a spending ban right now.. :p
