My life unplugged

my daily thoughts and ramblings on motherhood, raising my kids, being a wife and everything else in between that matters in our life.

buying a book for the first time again

i didn't know how euphoric it felt when the moment you hand over the book to the cashier, hand over your payment, hear the magical jingle of the cash register and the crisp sound of the paper bag being handed over to you after purchasing a book can be this... well, euphoric. it felt like the first time all over again.

it felt like i was 6 again when i had my first taste of purchasing a book of my choice. that time if i remember, it was a sweet valley teens novel. and it felt good. so good that i started saving up whatever's left of my measly allowance just so i can buy a book monthly. i was hooked.

and after all these years, it happened all over again. i got to buy a book. a novel. something concrete that i can hold and sleep beside with at night. and i missed the feeling so much.

i bought the time traveler's wife, a novel by audrey niffenegger. i got hooked when i heard it was going to be adapted into a movie. saw the trailer and found it to be a potentially good movie. but i decided to read the book first. i wanted to get a feel of the story between these two people.

and now i can't wait to curl up in our bed and read a few chapters before i fall asleep. i just hope i don't read it too fast that by the time i go into labor i've got nothing to do or to read.

it just feels good to have a good book to come home to right? :)

here's the trailer for the movie:
