A Meme & A Wish

Only 3 nights to go before the 1st Filipino Reader Conference!  I'm pretty excited.  I'm all set and looking forward to meeting fellow Pinoy readers, especially those whom I've gotten to know through the Filipino Friday memes.  Speaking of which, I still have to post my answer to the final installment wherein it asks about expectations during the event...

What do you hope will happen in the Filipino ReaderCon? What are you expecting from the event?

If I were to base it from the program, I'm definitely going to learn a lot from the event.  I don't expect it to be perfect or anything given that this is going to be the first venture but I do hope it's not going to be the last.  I look forward to meeting fellow bibliophiles and get/share book recommendations.  I've been reading for as long and as much as I could so learning from the experiences of fellow Pinoy readers would be such a trip.


Since the BER months have ushered in, I've been wondering about what do I get myself this Christmas.  While Sydney would've been my delayed birthday gift, I've been toying between a couple of gadgets and with my brother leaving for a business trip in Canada, it seems all the more plausible that I get this little thing for myself...

To be honest, buying a Kindle was the least of my gadget priorities... until recently.  A new camera was supposed to be my next target gadget specifically this one...

However, since we got a new camera as a freebie for the package my brother and I got for our laptops, the thought of buying one suddenly became less of a priority.  Plus, as my daily commute to & from the office averages about 3 hours, I need something to pass the time by minus the bulk of traditional books.  This notion alone is quite odd because if you'd ask me a couple of years ago about my thoughts regarding a Kindle and I'd probably say that buying it is a luxury.  Now, I feel that it's no longer the case.

I fear for my wallet, I really do, because it's going to do a whole lot of work for several months. Wish me luck! ;)
