Of Kinokuniya and Recycling

I went to Kinokuniya this evening to do some research for Cultural and Human Behaviour in the Built Environment subject which is on human behaviour in different physical setting.

Okay. That's sounds complicated (and boring), right? Simply said I have to make observation in a building and as for my part, I chose to do it in a bookstore, hence Kinokuniya.

Anyway, after asking the management unit regarding permission to study the store, which is not yet granted cause of some dull procedures that I have to go through (hey, I'm polite enough to ask permission!) before I can do the stuff I gotta do i.e. taking pictures, questionnaires maybe, and of course some sketching.

Anyway, I went around the manga section (mostly) and to the Japanese section. There are many Japanese magazines and books though unfortunately I can't read Japanese yet... I even notice a (RM11.00) Japanese shimbun (newspaper)!

After mesmerizing myself with the whole collection of Vampire Knight and Black Butler manga collections (again), I went to the kids corner, to see how it's like and how it benefit parents, children and the store itself.

I have a weird soft spot for notebooks or note pads. Believe me, it's crazy! As I walked the last aisle on the stationery section, I noticed the weird, plain, and dull features of notebooks and note pads. As it piles up on a shelf only revealing the spines towards me, I picked one of them and it has "Reuse" word on it. I picked another one with "Reduce" word on it. I went on picking another one with "Recycle" on it and the last notebook I picked is with "Rethink" on it.

I fell in love with all of them. Plain and simple. But since they're only with 200 pages, I decided to go with the 400 pages one.


I picked some note pads, too!
