Travelholic + Bookworm = Travelworm




I have weird quirks, books!!!
Not just any book, but travel book. Don't, I repeat DO NOT take me to a bookshop, I will get all over excited! Like little kids going to toyshop. Sooo, what happen nowadays, I stop going into one, very very dangerous for me, suicidal to my wallet. And once I start ogling, I start googling, and once I start googling, I start buying (tix). Argh..... its a vicious cycle for me!

Is there a traveholic rehab or something?
I need serious help.

Loads and loads of DK travel, my favourite! Cause pic & text are of same quantity, pics look good; I shall go!

Yup! That easy to persuade me to travel, pretty much a sucker for nice pics. Oh! I would buy despite I don't travel to that particular country that soon, crazy huh! I don't mind ogling at the pics.


DK don't have book on South Korea.... arghh.... spoiler for my collection.

Yup! Plenty plenty travelbook! And this is NOT my only travel book.

Oh! Just in case you think that I am a lunatic, I DO read other books okay; REALLY. This is my favourite comic as of now, well.... I like Calvin & Hobbes as well but somehow I have softspot for cute farnie children book.

Don't you just love Zoe... ehhehe... This happens to me soooo often.

Occasionally, I do like to buy and browse thru dainty craft book, but to execute them? Nahhh....

Now.... the type of books I read (yet to) versus my sis.... I let you be the judge.

And this is my random books and half yet to even START! Arghh.... When will I be like Manglish! (Envy mode)

Obviously my sis's collection is very much different from mine, you can just sense the AGE GAP!!!!

I thought this was sweet.... Aww....

Typical scenario with sibling huh!

Rafael Lam said...

I'm lucky I can travel without books... because I usually research online, but I like comics and cartoons...

George said...

I'm very impressed with your collection of travel books. It's dangerous for me to go to a bookstore, but history books are my downfall.

Sweetness said...

weeehh!!! <3 books! Thanks for sharing, errr travelworm ^__^

Tommy Andre Nekkoy said...

I just came home from Dublin yesterday. My next trips will go to Gran Canaria, Roma and New York

Lily Riani said...

drollgirl said...

lol! i hear ya! i have stacks and stacks of books (many/most of which i have not even read yet), and i keep ordering more! love books! wish i had more time to actually READ them!

Cawan said...

macam library of travel bleh jadi ni..

INDIA and NZ? pinjammmm. hek3..

Y. Ikeda said...

My suggestion is to sell at auctions. I stopped going to the bookstore. Instead I am heading to the library! Keeping books occupies a lot of spaces and we cannot afford it anymore.
Thanks for showing your collection.

AKO @ retna said...

J_on_tour@jayzspaze said...

Wow,wow,wow.... For a minute when I started reading this post..... I thought that it was me that was writing it !!!! .... until I saw the motherhood books and then I realised that it wasn't me writing after all !!
I don't have many comic or kids books but i could have a game of "snap" with your DK books... I love, love,love. Maybe you would win as the only ones I haven't got from your collection is Italy, Seville, Greece (I never know how I don't own that one ... must have sold out ), Thailand and Beijing. I'm a late starter to top 10...you have 3 of the 12 I have.
I had severe overspend in 2006 thanks to these books selling off the previous edition.
If you find a DK traveholic rehab, I may need their help as well... Just done a DK count... 68. I need their telephone number quick,

Linnea said...

I lOVE those top ten travel guides and try to buy them whenever I'm visiting a new city!

ColeAndJosephine said...

I'm a book hoarder, too! Solidarity!

Jom Travel said...

what a great book u have. good to know somebody with similar passion!

fatt said...

WOW lily...this is awesome! aku tak penah lagi perasan DK guide book so pasni aku nak usha...

AKu tatau nape aku stuck dgn LP, maybe sbb the 1st book aku dapat drpd roomate masa travel ke Spore & ever since aku addict dgn LP..phew~

LP mmg mostly focus on input than photos, tataula nape tp aku suka LP sbb info dlm tu disusun kemas & accurate sampaikan kalau aku tak study psl sstu tempat tu pun aku tak risau sbb aku bleh cari terus info dlm tu..hahaha
