Nice, hehe lalo naman ako nahype sa pagbasa! yung Console Wars masarap basahin kasi maliban sa parang history siya ng Nintendo at Sega, andami ko nalalaman na parang trivia sa kanila.

Yung RE Zero hour di pa ko nakakalayo pero so far yung parang main character is yung Rebecca. Si Wesker pa lang yung parang other main character na n-encounter ko... ^^

Hehe...sarap mag book hunting. Ako din dati laman ng booksale, minsan maski meron na ako nung paperback, pag nakita ko yung hardcover napapabili pa din ako lalo na pag yung mga series ng books na talagang kinokolekta ko. =)

Nice, good one!

Fruitless ang book hunting ko kagabi sa Booksale...Yeah, the books i saw 2 weeks ago are still there, but after i flipped the pages and saw some of the contents are already with my past books, i decided not to purchase any, though i might next week, baka yung Life In The Medieval Times na lang bibilhin ko....Bumili na lang ako ng FHM September 2014 issue at SLAM instead kagabi...

Booksale Bro.........I'm still regretting not buying Life In The Age Of Chivalry.....

Pero i got this now...

Image

Ang natira na lang dun from the same series is Life On The Home Front, panahon nung WW2...Pero i'm not interested in that....

It's a good read overall...The book tells everything how life was during the Victorian era, kung anong quack medicines ang pinapainom sa gullible people by that time, ano yung toys nung mga bata nun, etc.
