Fragments of an afternoon

Hot.

Went inside a bookshop. Stopped at the entrance for a while and looked. A nod and a hint of smile. Hot.

Browsed through the racks of books. Not really wanting to buy anything. Took some off the shelf in random and read the jackets: James Patterson, Patricia Cornwell, David Baldacci and oh, a Harry Potter in paperback. Biography of god knows who, an autobiography of one the devil only cares.

Another look. A few seconds more and then …. A meeting to preside and a seminar to give.

Went back. Stopped at the entrance for a while and looked. Another nod, another smile. Hot.

Walked straight to the sci-fi/fantasy section. Robert Jordan, David Eddings, Peter Hamilton. Started to read Trudi Canavan’s Age of Five series. No money to buy. Glimpses from time to time. Hot.

Another look. A few seconds more. A nod. A smile.

Walked out.

Jack. Off.

Hot.

Lessons for the day:

  1. Knowledge is power, visit your nearest bookstore
  2. Dymocks Booksellers: Where it's easy to find, hard to find bookings!

Hmm.. bakit parang ang dating sa akin ay may naka-mowment ka sa bookstore? hehe.

Lyka Bergen said...

I feel the same with Mugen.

You dont do bookings in a bookshop. You only do that in the internet or over the phone.

What you do in a bookstore is browse for books; In here, you judge the books by their covers. If you like one, then, read (the mind). And if you like what you are reading, proceed to the nearest toilet and jack each other off. Hot.

Then go home. Write a book review in your blog. Make Anne Roquelaure proud!

mas bet ko ang sauna at steamroom sa gym. doon di lang tinginan ang labanan. pawisan, hubaran. kasi it's so hot. literally.

Keitaro Hanazawa said...

Oo nga, there's something fishy in this post. Bakit pag ako nasa bookstore puro libro lang nakikita ko? Hindi rin hot dun. Cold. As in so cold.

Kiks said...
