I am in school. Second year plus change. Which means I am eligible for the RM200 book voucher giveaway for university students.

With voucher in hand, the boy and I quickly dropped by Kinokuniya Sunday morning before the overwhelming weekend herd shambled in. Without consciously deciding to purchase only horror books, we ended up with them anyway!

Irfan wanted the Hellboy and The Walking Dead books. I checked out the storylines online before deciding he was old enough for them. I also bought for him Neil Gaiman's The Graveyard Book. I grabbed for myself Charlie Stross' The Atrocity Archives because one day I want to play the Laundry RPG.

If they weren't free I wouldn't be able to buy them.

You'd think two hundred is a high number and could buy a dozen books, wouldn't you. Sigh.

Well, I suppose four is better than nothing!

Confusion reigns. Isn’t the two hundred supposed to be for school books? What sort of school is Irfan attending that teaches ‘Hellboy’? I wanna go there!

Every book therein contains loads of teh educations! Where else do you expect he’d learn about Коще́й the Deathless? A history book? Hee.

cool beans. i am still chicken with the supernatural horror (blood and gore is fine, throw in ghosts and zombies and i’m a mess). Yaya seems to tske after me – she doesn’t even like shows with villains in them and asks for it to be changed to something else “something nice” :-)

gosh – you’re brave to let the boy read Neil Gaiman and the walking Dead…..
