My, my…Spuds is pretty active this week. This deserves a round of applause, mainly because, it’s rare and because my boss has been away for almost 2 weeks. Okay, what shall we feature today? Hmmm…
I’ve been doing When I First Saw You posts for Thursdays, but it’s actually just happening once every month. So to fill the space, I will now be joining Book Traveling Thursdays. It’s hosted by Catia from The Girl Who Read Too Much.
I’m sure you’re probably wondering why there’s a graduating class picture above. One, I just want to show you how I look like with long hair; and second, it’s in line with this week’s theme, just you wait.
A BOOK WHERE FRIENDSHIP MATTERS
Originally, I was supposed to pick Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, but there’s just too many covers (around 15 editions). Plus, I think it’s such an obvious answer. So in the spirit of uniqueness, I’ve decided to go with…
Paper Towns, exhibit an awesome friendship roadtrip!
I did take one going to Tagaytay with my workmates just this 1st of July. It was good going being out of the city once in a while. Another reason, reading this made me remember my college friends, who are always looking out for me. Honestly, I just miss them so much, we rarely talk now that we’re all working and embracing the adult life. Life’s most brilliant lesson I’ve learned for the 22 years I’ve been existing on Earth, is that you find friends who are ready to make you laugh, make you smile during your down moments, and come to your aid when you’re lonely or in trouble. Make friendships that lasts a lifetime.
US COVERS (Different Publishers)
I live in the Philippines, we mostly just get two versions, US & UK. That being said, we don’t have Philippines editions of books. Most of the time, I prefer UK edition. This is the first time I’ve had to search for multiple covers. And let me tell you, it wasn’t easy. Do forgive me if I had some wrong, I’m not well-versed with countries and I just relied on Google. Anyway, let’s get on with it…
(GERMANY, ITALY, FRANCE)
(CZECH, UK, US-MOVIE EDITION)
Alright, on to my favorite cover. I had a hard time picking one, I don’t know which one stands out for me. But for the sake of this meme, I’ll go with the Italian Cover. Most hated, will have to be the France cover. I mean come on, what the fudge is that.
Paper Towns is one of the most beautiful John Green’s books for me. I love the symbolism I found in it. We’re all always searching, whether it’s something or someone, and it is when we follow a plan, that we get more lost. We forget about the amazing things that are going on along the way.
For 2 years, I’ve spent my mornings and afternoons sitting in boring classes and a mountain of homework with these ladies. I miss them terribly everyday, but I know they’ll be around once I need them.
That’s it for today’s Book Traveling! Go leave me some comments, Cabbages! And spread the love! I’d love to see your posts for today, what is your chosen book about friendship.
