Book and Music Whore, I Am.


It's coming back to me. I think it happened at Kepler's Books and Magazines in Menlo Park or at Raspudin's in Mountain View. I don't know, and I don't really care that much. It's still all coming back to me.

I knew music was my passion. It ranged from classic Rock to Thrash and Black Metal. Now it's books. I already had passion for books, as well, but it was minimized for a while when music came in the picture, particularly when I got my first iPod touch. I think now I know the book addiction came back at Raspudin's when I saw all those used books and Cd's for cheap prices.





David Copperfield by Charles Dickens
Aztec Autumn and Aztec Fire by Gary Jennings
Mustaine by Dave Mustaine
Time Machine and other stories by H.G Wells.

I still seek:

A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
My Friend Leonard by James Frey

That's usually my main reason to browse for books. But I'll still take whatever catches my attention.

I almost kept going, and I would if I had more cash. And when I do, I'll also be buying more music for my iPod touch. Maybe a few new apps for my collection.

It's more enticing than sex, sometimes, something that I've yet to experience for at least another year. I remember that day at Raspudin's, looking at everything in awe, feeling like I'm in a place better than a Playboy mansion.

I'm a whore for all this stuff. Although I am picky as to what I collect, it still makes me see myself as a whore for books and music. Although I think I'm cheating on both. But so what? If they're cheap/free, or I have the money, and if it's been on my list for collecting and interest, I'll take it.

Don't tell me to change my ways. Don't tell me about money saving. I at least have control of myself. Instead, how about you help me out by showing me more bookstores with used stuff and maybe give to me or sell me your old shit? Books and music Cd's, please!
