Fully Booked

I was looking around Fully Booked when I saw Perfume, The Story of a Murderer by Patrick Suskind. Suprised to know it's now a major motion picture. Or am I the only who doesn't know it's already a movie? But can't wait.

I read this book years ago and it's still one of my favorites. I bought it at Booksale. I learned about the book from one of Jessica Zafra's write ups in Woman Today. That was maybe late, late 80s (I have to emphasize on the "late, late) or early 90s.

I often refer to Zafra's book recommendations before I buy. True enough, Perfume is different, with a surprised ending. It makes me puke till now but its unconventional ending is one of the highlights of the book. Anyway, I bought it around P35.00 if I remember it right, it's nothing
beyond P50.00, that I am very sure of. Hah, that's a great buy then. It
costs P599.00 today. But well yes, considering how long ago it was...

the old look yellow pages
This was how it looked then, embossed and all, so 80s ba? I've kept it as I've kept all my books, the pages are already yellowish.
