Summer is getting to end soon and everyone is getting ready for the new school year. Most of the students are excited to go back to school while most of the employees are saying goodbye to a long vacation, family outing and beaches.

Yet let me give you something to end your summer with a smile. I am giving away a BOOK which is recommended by!

Here is the link of the list of the books that you should read during summer and vacation:

Where’d You Go, Bernadette? By Maria Semple was bought straight from, one of the known online shopping sites in the world. It was listed as number 1 best-selling book from This is actually new and never been read book.


Here is the summary:

Bernadette Fox is notorious. To her Microsoft-guru husband, she’s a fearlessly opinionated partner; to fellow private-school mothers in Seattle, she’s a disgrace; to design mavens, she’s a revolutionary architect, and to 15-year-old Bee, she is a best friend and, simply, Mom.

Then Bernadette disappears. It began when Bee aced her report card and claimed her promised reward: a family trip to Antarctica. But Bernadette’s intensifying allergy to Seattle–and people in general–has made her so agoraphobic that a virtual assistant in India now runs her most basic errands. A trip to the end of the earth is problematic.

To find her mother, Bee compiles email messages, official documents, secret correspondence–creating a compulsively readable and touching novel about misplaced genius and a mother and daughter’s role in an absurd world.


Do you have difficulty in finding the book that you like? I also have that same problem. Whether the book is out of stock or I need to pre-order it. Good thing there is Fullybooked! Fully booked is actually my favorite book shop because they can response to your book needs. Whenever I ask for a certain book in twitter, they immediately answer my inquires. I pre-ordered My Name is Memory by Ann Brashares which was out of stock for quite sometime in most of the bookstores. In just two weeks, I got the book!

Thank you also to Fullybooked because I bought the two books of one of my favorite author Christine Feehan. Most of her books are hard to find in any bookstores in our country, I even purchased one of her books from Barnes and Nobles.
