I’m officially privileged!
Went to Kinokuniya a few days back to buy two books for my sis, and when I was there, I was persuaded to sign up for their privilege members’ card. So now, I have privilege members’ cards for all the major bookshops: Borders, Popular and Kino! And I noticed something random, which is that all three cards are yellow. Here:
But it was what my mum said when she knew I went to Kinokuniya that really got me bursting out in laughter. She said, “Aiyoh! Everytime you go to a bookshop, I get worried!” The reason being that I would always buy a book or two when I enter a bookshop, as the piles of books on my study table, bedside table, floor, reading chair all testify. And yes, true to form, in addition to the two books that I bought for my sis that day, I also bought a book for myself! =) But don’t tell my mum that as I skilfully mingle the new book with the rest of the books that are lying on the floor surrounding my bed.
