Finally used my gift certificates from Powerbooks! Man, I could live there. Sigh.
The Last Temptation of Christ by Nikos Kazantzakis -> Been looking for this book since college. It was the first thing I saw when I entered Powerbooks Greenbelt. I think I almost shrieked. I’m so glad they made prints again. There’s also a Scorsese film version which I want to watch, but only after I read the book. In case you’re not familiar, it’s a novel which explores the humanity of Jesus Christ.
The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown -> Yes I know, everybody’s reading it. Usually I hate it when something becomes so popular that everybody does it (not that there’s anything wrong, it just annoys me). But this book’s about something I’m genuinely interested in. So there. I’m in the bandwagon.
Holy Blood, Holy Grail by Michael Baigent, Richard Leigh and Henry Lincoln -> I eavesdropped on two gals talking in Powerbooks. One of them, who apparently was from CDO (yay! kababayan!), was telling the other about this book. It’s more of a research or documentary and would help a reader appreciate the Da Vinci Code better. Daw. But of course, got sold on what she was saying (she’s from CDO! yay!).
Notice anything with my choice of reading materials? Love this kind of stuff. Question question existence. Question how, question why. Keep the faith. La la la…
