“Cathy’s Book”.. a great find on a Saturday


I’m not very good in finding ‘hidden’ treasures. Usually, my sister is the pro when we go to thrift shops, book sales, bazaars and the like. But when I saw this little black book (black is mysterious, right?) in the middle of a stack at the book sale, I was immediately attracted to it. I was even more intrigued when I scanned through the pages. It looked old and with missing pages and looked like someone already wrote on it – but it’s actually new. That was just part of the book’s ‘packaging’. It’s supposed to be a diary of sorts complete with a bag of clues. On the pages are drawings and doodles of the author. It was so cute and cheap too that I had to buy it! Check it out.

I’ve started reading this ‘interactive’ book and am actually hooked on it. It’s interesting and probably  written for a teener. Hehe. Really nice in reality. You have to admit, it’s pretty cool, eh? 🙂
