New Addition To Book Collection





I bought my boy a story book from the Enid Blyton's collection at Popular Bookstore on a Friday about a month ago.  I talked him out of buying Ben 10 book series this time and he seemed okay with my suggestion.

To us, Friday means bye bye... homework and revisions and Yay.. a big welcome to the approaching weekends! Our favourite spot after school will be to head for dinner at Madam Lim's or Ikea and  then my boy will either be sent to Ikea Playland while I have my ME time enjoying a cuppa cappucino at the restaurant.  On other Fridays, my boy will be seen sitting on the carpet floor at Popular's kids section browing books while the mommy dashes off to her preferred book section. I know, sounds very boring... but I am a bored person.. can't help it.. it's in the blood..:P

He has since finished reading the whole book and I am happy that he is slowly graduating to books that are of minimal pictures and seems enjoy reading Enid Blyton's.  This is the 5th (or was it 6th) book he has read so far.  We used to borrow the books from the nearby library but the availability of book titles from the collection there are somewhat scarce and limited.

I can see myself buying more and more Enid Blyton's to add to my boy's book collection and why not, it costs only RM9.90 each in contrary to Ben 10 series where I have to fork out more than RM10 for one.
