We are all Philosophers…

Sophie's WorldSophie’s World by Jostein Gaarder

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Finally! I survived this book. The road to finishing this 500-page masterpiece is grueling and mind-boggling… but very enlightening. The journey not only consisted of a light at the end of the tunnel, but was a maze of doors and windows waiting to be opened to let the light in at every step.

I hope I will have the chance to re-read this book at least once more in my life time. And hopefully next time, I will have my own chapter with my own philosophy to contribute.

Ugh. I cannot get over.

One should definitely read Sophie’s World. It truly opens your mind and lets one see the world in the grander sense. Makes you think… our lives are indeed mere bagatelles… for “we too are stardust.”

Finally, I’m Home!

My new bookshelf finally arrived!
And I just finished unpacking and arranging all my books, DVDs, VCDs and other collections and what-nots.

Believe it or not, I have no more boxes or bags left to unpack.
Moving-in is officially done.
Sure, there are still some things we need to buy (like stove table, energy-saving lightbulbs, new trash cans, etc. — oh, and grocery! We need food.)… but no more unpacking left.

I cannot wait to add more books in this shelf!
Oh yes. I’m finally home. 🙂

Side Note: Excuse the mess in the lower left corner. 😛
