I cannot stress how good this book warehouse sale is, you have to go see it for yourself.
Brand-new books at RM12, which is one-third the price of a paperback at a bookstore! Lots of contemporary fiction that I can’t remember all the names. They’re selling classics with contemporary covers, like Shakespeare and Jane Austen books. They’d look terribly good even if you can’t stand reading them. This is like the ultimate in book warehouse sales, I’m telling you.
1. Paperback Charlotte’s Web by E. B. White for RM10.
2. Hardcover The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas by John Boyne for RM17.
3. Paperback The Jane Austen Book Club by Karen Joy Fowler for RM13.
4. Pingu postcard book for RM1.
5. Heroes, Villains and Creatures of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire postcard book for RM1.
I could’ve bought a hell lot more of books, but the choice of books available are more of the sort that one hasn’t exactly heard of, but they look pretty interesting. They’re the kind of books I’d love to read, but not exactly buy. That said, I think it’s a great place to try out new books, since it’s only going for one-third the usual price of paperbacks. Stay away from the dictionaries, though. The same dictionary I bought for RM9 from the MPH distributor’s warehouse sale is selling for RM13.
