Gotz me more books |+ PDF DOWNLOAD

When I was younger I was a pain in the ass. I gotta say it.
Though I didn't have the same reasons as other kids, not even during most of my adolescence had I "normal" reasons to bother my parents. I was a responsible kid, mature and easy-to-control, I learnt to drive when I was about 12 or 13 and when I was 15 I already had my own car and went to school by myself. But only that, only to school. I was scared to drive anywhere else, so not until this year, even with a car of my own, my parents had to drive me everywhere.
But where am I getting to, you may wonder sweet child. I'm saying that yesterday I went to Gandhi (book store) on my own! (And yeah, just a bit of help from my boyfriend as a GPS, but who counts?)
My parents NEVER wanted to give me a ride to the bookstore (and stay with me for a while until i found the right book). To be fair, I could take hours to find just one book.
Then I got my Kindle, so every time I asked them to take me there or to let me buy a "physical" book they'd say "Just download it, right?"
Yesh,yesh, books are expensive.
Like Kathleen Lights would say, "Das espeeensive".

BUT! You may wonder what I got and what I'm going to show you...
I'm sorry to inform you that it was only two books and –today– one PDF.

Here's a list.

The Intellectual Devotional (I bought it in Spanish though: 365 Días Para Ser Más Culto)

By David S. Kidder and Noah D. Oppenheim

"This daily digest of intellectual challenge and learning will arouse curiosity, refresh knowledge, expand horizons, and keep the mind sharp."
I got this book for my boyfriend, it's about 750 pages long, and yesterday only after maybe half an hour we went 40 pages into it. I completely recommend it, even though We're not even in the book's february yet!

1Q84 (Books 1 and 2)


By Haruki Murakami
"A young woman named Aomame follows a taxi driver’s enigmatic suggestion and begins to notice puzzling discrepancies in the world around her. She has entered, she realizes, a parallel existence, which she calls 1Q84 —“Q is for ‘question mark.’ A world that bears a question.” Meanwhile, an aspiring writer named Tengo takes on a suspect ghostwriting project. He becomes so wrapped up with the work and its unusual author that, soon, his previously placid life begins to come unraveled..."

–CAN'T WAIT!– This would be the first book I read by the –apparently marvellous– Haruki Murakami!


There's a reason I cited the youtuber Kathleen Lights before, and it's because...
She recommended the book "Don't Sweat The Small Stuff"... And I had to get it PRONTO. 

Don't Sweat the Small Stuff ... and it's all small stuff


By Richard Carlson, PH.D. 
"Don't Sweat the Small Stuff... and it's all small stuff is a book that shows you how to keep from letting the little things in life drive you crazy. In thoughtful and insightful language, author Richard Carlson reveals ways to calm down in the midst of your incredibly hurried, stress-filled life..."

As I told you, I downloaded it in PDF, so here's two links so you can download it and enjoy it as well!

That's it! 
I also hope I will be reading these books sooner rather than later, cos look at those pages (like, hello..)

I will also make a shameless shoutout to Beauty Guru Kathleen Lights, because I think she's beautiful and a great person, and she just makes my day. 

Have you read any of these books? If so, would you recommend them?
