My Library

I've signed up in Library Thing. It sure helped me catalogued my books. I don't know if this happens to you but there are times when I am in a bookstore, I get lost with what to buy with all the great titles and stories on the shelves. There are times I have something on my mind but I get distracted. So far, there are five books I haven't read yet and all of them are gifts from officemates.

Library Thing has a pretty good list of books which I don't have yet. I am raring to finish all my "pending" books and buy some more. Books give me a real high.

Some of my books are displayed in the side bar.

Of all the books I bought, I was greatly disappointed with Tuesdays with Morrie. Same old, same old. I promised not to buy any book by Mitch Albom. Everything is so cliche in Tuesday's...

I am hooked with Haruki Murakami books. I like his style. He captures emotions so eloquently. No matter how weird his plot goes, he still connects with his readers. One can still adapt and participate in his storytelling.

I'm starting on my blog. Finally. I've been postponing doing this because of time constraints. I decided to pursue this now because I believe this is a 'feel good' activity. At least for me. I hope to post a lot and make this a connection for me, my family living in the US and my friends who are all so busy that we only meet like once in two months. And probably, some new friends from the blogging world. Why not? :)

Why "avocado-express"? Honestly, I spent an hour just thinking of a blog address. I want something light and something that has meaning or connection with me. And after some thinking, Avocado Express is it! This isn't exactly my favorite fruit (sometimes it's taken as a vegetable according to Wikipedia) but a few weeks ago, my husband prepared this:

1 whole avocado fruit
1/2 cup of evaporated milk
1 teaspoon sugar
big chunks of ice

I have always loved this kind of mix. I just coined the term Avocado Express. That one was pretty special because it has no after taste, usually there's a bitter aftertaste. The avocado came from Davao according to our favorite fruit vendor. It instantly became our feel good food. Now there's the connection. :) Since this blog is a feel good activity for me, why not make that my blog title.

It's a little too late but I welcome myself to the blogging world. I intend to post and blog hop a lot to worthy blogs. :)
