Blogggrls brekkie book meet

Sorry to fellow bloggers for that title, but I couldn't resist the alliteration. A few of us who meet up every so often decided to hie off to a breakfast and book fair morning. Due to unforeseen circumstances, I missed the breakfast (MOA), but got to the bookfair over at the World Trade Center. "Making it a habit" is the theme of this year's fair. Well, it's too much of a habit for me, but a lesser vice I suppose (although buying too many books just for the sake of it must fall under avarice).

What did I buy? 1. The Mysterious Flame of Queen Loana by Umberto Eco, 2. A Year at the Races by Jane Smiley, and 3. Hide this French Book, a Berlitz publication. Nena bought the Hide this Spanish Book, so we should be fully prepared to talk like sailors the next time a trip to Spain and France come around.

I bought two Spanish language books (not as exciting as Nena's, unfortunately). And my friend Fabian bought books for 3 different languages: Urdu, French, Portuguese. =)

I was going through some of the pages oh my "hide this spanish book" last night and laughing alone in my room. I would have bought more books if I wasn't trying to save for my upcoming trip.

There's a website for the Hide My French book, so we can learn all the naughty french terms online!

Really? Then there should be one for the other languages?
