book shopping


Five new books and two magazines to read! Yeay!

Can’t wait to read Lucky Child by Loung Ung. i bought her first book–First They Killed My Father–when in Phnom Penh from a child vendor. She came in with a basket of books when i was having dinner in a restaurant. A tourist at the next table checked through the pages for me because he bought a copy from her before and there were missing pages. The copy was complete so i got one. i didn’t read the book immediately as i was feeling quite down throughout my time in Cambodia. Few months later, when i finally pick up the book again, i couldn’t control my tears and cried through the reads.
