Bored / Busy

Now that football is having its break, I'm bored.

And what timing too - television is also getting stale.

Num3rs and Lost have breaks before Season 2. Everybody Loves Raymond has ended. CSI just finished its season finale (directed by Quentin Tarantino). There is only Simpsons then (the last one was great - Homer and Bart turned to Catholicism). And I have waited endlessly for Battlestar Galactica.

There's only books then and there's a pile of them.

Just finished The Winter Queen (Erast Fandorin Mysteries) by Boris Akunin (Great, didn't seem translated at all).

Probably 100 pages into Out : A Novel by Natsuo Kirino.

Just got my hands on The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time (Vintage Contemporaries) by Mark Haddon (Glad it's thin, with the amount of books I have) from a friend who borrowed from the library.

Bought 2 books from the last Kinokuniya sale: A Random Walk Down Wall Street: Completely Revised and Updated Eighth Edition by Burton G. Malkiel

and Bull's Eye Investing: Targeting Real Returns in a Smoke and Mirrors Market by John Mauldin (thought I support John since I received his free newsletter every Saturday).

And I just reserved Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro at the library.

Oh yeah, picked up again, from the library - The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle : A Novel by Haruki Murakami - S Tan's recommendation.

That's a lot.

Mr Lim: Do tell me what you think about Wing Up Bird.... no matter how bad it is to you... to each his own...
