Big Bad Wolf Books

I wanted to go to "Big Bad Wolf" since August that I bought very few book during this year's Book Fest. Finally the location of the Big Bad Wolf was announced and it's at MAEPS, Serdang this year and I was thinking how to get there. I was undecided whether I should go or not since it's hard for me to go there without proper transportation.

I nearly gave up my desire to go but thanks to Mr Penguin's words that get me going. He said "if you are really a book lover, you will find a way to go there no matter what". It's really "when there's a will, there's a way". I was supposed to go out with my manager on Sunday for my monthly showroom visit but I chose to push it to the following week and go to the book sales. Although I didn't buy much, I'm happy with what I got. ^^ I would say that your words really get me going. After what you said, I immediately Google-d to find how I can get there by public transport. Thanks Mr Penguin or else I wouldn't get the books that I've bought.

I still have 10 other unread books gotten from last years Big Bad Wolf Day. Hehe ^^ I need to speed up my reading. I ♥ Big Bad Wolf. The books there are so cheap. RM8/RM10 per book is so so so so so worth it.


It's funny when a friend commented that the books I got are very boring as it's from contemporary writers. My thoughts to you are: I like what I like. If I were to change my liking because of what you said, then I am not me any more*. And by the way, I might not like the books that you like too. It's too classic (too old school) for me. I am sorry for being so direct but this is what I wanted to say. 
* This reminded me of a story although it's irrelevant here.I like the story below and you will understand what I meant. 

PERSONAL PERCEPTION 
 
Different people have different perception. One man's meat could be another man's poison. 

A couple bought a donkey from the market. On the way home, a boy commented, "Very stupid. Why neither of them ride on the donkey? "Upon hearing that, the husband let the wife ride on the donkey. He walked besides them. 

Later, an old man saw it and commented, "The husband is the head of family. How can the wife ride on the donkey while the husband is on foot?" Hearing this, the wife quickly got down and let the husband ride on the donkey.

Further on the way home, they met an old Lady. She commented, "How can the man ride on the donkey but let the wife walk. He is no gentleman."
The husband thus quickly asked the wife to join him on the donkey. 

Then, they met a young man. He commented, "Poor donkey, how can you hold up the weight of two persons. They are cruel to you." Hearing that, the husband and wife immediately climbed down from the donkey and carried it on their shoulders. It seems to be the only choice left. 

Later, on a narrow bridge, the donkey was frightened and struggled. They lost their balance and fell into the river. 

Moral of the story:
You can never have everyone praise you, nor will everyone condemn you. Never in the past, not at present, and never will be in the future.


Thus, do not be too bothered by others words if our conscience is clear.
