Books, books and more books! It feels like Christmas!

Last month there was this amazing thing on Amazon.co.uk, where you could get 3 books for 10£. That’s amazing! Amazing I say! I say that because here in Barcelona or in Portugal, for that matter, the selection of books in english, that are ready to take on stores, is very limited. So, I jumped at the chance of buying some books, I needed some for my Reading Challenge anyway…

I started to click on the beginning of the month and finished my order on the 31st, my shopping bag had at the time some 22 books. So I had to cut a few… I managed to stay with 17! Yeah, not all of these belonged to that wonderful sales promotion, but nonetheless, the books were cheaper than buying them here. I ended up ordering 17 books and with the difference from pounds to euros and shipping costs and everything, it still came out for like 7€ a book, it’s quite cheap!

To sum it up, I’m very happy! I feel like a kid on Christmas day!

Movie of the Week: Gone Girl

This is probably one of the best movies I ever saw. What a mind blowing, twisted, unpredictable movie! I loved it! When Gone Girl made its mid movie interval, I thought the movie was over, because I seriously thought it couldn’t get more fu***d up than that – I was so wrong!

I realize it’s not a movie for everyone, but David Fincher did an amazing job, and the acting is sublime! I hadn’t seen a theater so participative in a movie since the last of the “Twilight” movies (and those were full of fangirls!) – everyone was gasping, and laughing and saying “no way”… you can’t ever forget a movie that gives you that kind of reactions!
