The Side Readings


I have been busy this summer! Yeah, its summer in the Philippines! yay! But I only went to the beach once this summer so far. Its with the fambam,an impromptu hanging out on Labor Day (May 1) since its a holiday and most of my family members/relatives are present because of the obvious reason that there’s no work on a holiday especially onΒ  a Labor Day of course! πŸ™‚

But this is better than last year, I haven’t been to the beach all summer because I went to Japan (spring time there but very cold!). haha.. My friends say its better than going to the beach but I really do think you have to spend summer accordingly.

Anyway, there’ still time to go to the beach that is if I still have time outside from work and preparing for my thesis proposal hearing! haha..

With all these busyness in my life I still manage to have some recreational readings just to loosen me up a bit. I have been reading so many things lately modules for training at work, articles for my thesis proposal and my recreational readings! haha

This is my favorite so far, among all my readings Why We Broke Up by Daniel Handler (epub version, you can convert it to pdf file if you don’t have an epub reader). I am hooked with Daniel’s books, so I downloaded the good ones. I will share it in my Good Reads page soon enough so you guys can read it. He’s mostly known in his pen name as Lemony Snicket (Series of Unfortunate Events).

Why We Broke Up: Plot Summary

Min Green and Ed Slaterton, a high school junior and senior basketball jock, respectively, ended their relationship, which lasted from October 5 to November 12. The story takes the form of a letter, with Min writing to Ed explaining why they had broken up. The letter accompanies a box full of minor objects that narrates the progress of their relationship, and is returned to Ed at the end of the letter.

Aside from the story, I really love its book art. There’s still plenty of beautiful arts in the book which makes it more interesting to read.

What adds to the beauty of this book is its website wherein Handler collated break-up stories and it fascinates me – a lot! πŸ™‚

Visit his site and maybe send a break-up story of your own, it doesn’t have to be long though.
