I love to read non-fiction stuff. I was never really "reading" when I was younger. I read books because it was required, not because I grew up yearning and wanting to do it. But I love National Bookstore. It's my favorite place to go to when i'm inside the mall. I have this thing for school and office supplies stuff. I need to have those post-its and those teeny weeny stapler. They have everything!
And then one day I learned about National Bookstore's Cubao branch and found out that several floors are dedicated to promo items including books. It sparked my interest in reading books because I want to, not because i need to. And then I get lost everytime I go there. I specifically love memoirs of normal people - no celebrities please. It feels so real and I can so relate with some of my books (which are incredibly cheap!). Memoirs of drug addicts, abortion addicts, a daughter of a funeral director/owner, 9/11 survivors, divorce addicts and many more. I am currently reading Long Past Stopping: A memoir by Oran Canfield - son of the famous Chicken Soup For the Soul guy, Jack Canfield.

Fast forward to the day I claimed my prize. While inside the store, I asked the personnel in-charge about it. She said that my name wasn't on the list. I was stunned. How can that be? I was about to leave when I thought of trying my luck on my username - blissfulguro. And there it was, my username in bold letters. Whew! I was glad that I thought of that.
