Dear 2011

This year, I promise


In between mothering Uno&Jed and cramming.
While commuting, standing in long queues, or attending dreary meetings.



  1. Hi, I’m also a regular at Jessica’s blog.
    Just found your blog while googling Twisted 9 🙂
    I see you’re reading Milan Kundera. I read a few of his novels and essays. And it had always been a challenge 🙂

  2. Hi. I once owned a copy of MK’s ‘Unbearable Lightness of Being’ but didn’t get to read it. A friend borrowed the book and I never see it again. I’m still on the third page of ‘The Art of the Novel’. I hope you’ll get your copy of Twisted 9. Its a great read. Thanks for dropping by, DD 🙂

  3. I am one of those who ordered Twisted 9 from Jessica’s site. But my books got delivered only yesterday (long story short:it was delivered to the wrong address). I’m reading it in between the other novel I’m reading.
    The Unbearable Lightness of Being is my favorite of Kundera’s novel. But the movie sucks, so don’t ever watch it 🙂
    His essays are so hard to read (for me at least). I find myself rereading almost all the sentences just to understand.

  4. I just finished Immortality by Milan Kundera before 2010 ended.
    Right now I’m reading Salman Rushdie’s Midnight Children. I read an article about the controversy of his novel The Satanic Verses so I got curious (although I haven’t read that particular novel).
    Next on my list is Freedom by Jonathan Franzen.
    And then the books that I won in Jessica’s litwit challenge.

  5. It looks like you have a reading plan going on. You won in JZ’s litwit challenge! Wow congrats! You must be so cool! Going back to your T9 book, did the parcel return to JZ because of the wrong add?

  6. just got lucky with my stories kaya nananalo.:)
    It seems that when Jessica was having my books delivered, she was also delivering another set of books for another person. our addresses got mixed up. so my books were delivered to that other person and her books to mine.

  7. Yes I emailed Ms.Jessica. She apologized and suggested to just have the books delivered directly to the other person instead of delivering the books back to her again.

  8. I see.

    I can relate just a bit to your experience. It also involved a book but it was a gift sent to me by a friend. I previously owned a copy of this particular book and even read it twice. What made it truly special was the fact that I got it after my friend and I gave it up. From Toronto the parcel reached Cavite. I didn’t get it. Then to our surprise, it appeared in my friend’s place again in Toronto after some time. Sealed and intact. So she sent the book to me again. It’s a special edition copy of P. Coelho’s ‘The Alchemist’.

    Was there a time you think (even for a while) you won’t get JZ’s T9?
