Finally, I’m back to being a bookaholic again. Oh, I miss reading stuff and I hate that my work is one of the main reasons I can’t finish a book. Anyways, my book for the moment is Michael Scott’s series The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas. Yeah, the name is familiar. You might want to check it out in Wikipedia or review your knowledge of Harry Potter’s first book The Sorcerer’s Stone. Nicholas Flamel is the Alchemist who created the sorcerer’s stone. So, enough on the review-of-related-literature part, let’s get the part about Michael Scott’s series.
The truth is I really haven’t heard of this book until December. There was some little fuss about the Christmas wish list for upcoming Christmas party and I was one of those who didn’t submit a wishlist because honestly, I really didn’t know what I wanted for Christmas so while my officemates were filling up their lists of t-shirts and bags, I searched the web. I thought, I wanted a book this time. I was actually looking for Paulo Coelho’s The Alchemist book at National Bookstore’s online shop when Michael Scott’s Book One of the series entitled “The Alchemist” popped up on the search results and Alas! There goes Michael Scott’s Book One on my wish list.
