Had a lovely day. We finished entering the data, and I only have to go in to enter 60 or so special invoices on Wednesday next week. After I got my pay, I went to the city. The weather was really nice, not too hot, and there was a gentle breeze.
There were a lot of tourists, walking around. Mostly slavs and brits.
"Ah ye, I'm sayin' is that Mahmite is the real thing", one exclaimed to his fat, red-faced peer while buying overpriced ice-cream in front of the National Museum.
I basically went on a shopping spree. I checked out my usual spots, buying some nice books. DeLillo's Underworld
was in nearly mint condition, and it costed me around a Euro. Same goes for the German books. Found three volumes of the Tolstoy-set I bought last month. Anna Karenina.
After this, I bought a bottle of sake and some tea.
The copy of Underworld
has the ex-libris of a woman in it, with her phone number attached.
Then I checked out what the book outlet had. I basically got everything that looked even remotely interesting, since they were usually 1-3 euros.
>Two collections of anecdotes from the life of Linji Yixuan
>Deleuze-Guattari - Kafka: Toward a Minor Literature
Guess I was right not to get it on that bookfest for three times the price. What a ripoff that would have been.
>Representation of Spaces in classic and contemporary Russian literature
I'm hoping to see some cool "recommendations" and some tricks I can show off during literature class
>Niklas Luhman - The Reality of Mass-media
>Historical persons in Hungarian social-democratic and communist propaganda (1890-1919)
>Derel Bickerton - Language and Species
>Kornai - The Socialist System
It's weird to see how these books are all well made, with good covers and paper, yet they are being sold off for a fraction of the price in some Budapest apartment functioning as a store.
Some boomers were quite annoyed that I took up too much space on the bus with my bags. Fuck boomers. Why are they on the bus at 6 o' clock anyway?
I'm really tired. Sadly I couldn't meet with my internet-friend. I'm going to enter the new items into the catalogue, and then I'll try showing them somewhere as a temporary solution until my father makes a new bookshelf. (Which will certainly only happen once he is done with building the new room. So until then, tsundoku tsundoku tsundoku
I'm going to spend the weekend reading. 4 days worth of reading. And maybe studying Chinese. I hope all your Ernsts had a wonderful day.
