Warning: A freaking long bookgasm post ahead
Bookgasms never felt so great as this one!!!
I bought 17, SEVENTEEN books, in the space of half an hour, for only RM50!!!
(USD$1 = RM3.50)
Granted, it’s so cheap because they’re second-hand, but who bloody cares?

Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret by Judy Blume
Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing by Judy Blume
The Pigman’s Legacy by Paul Zindel (I have the first book, The Pigman)

The Very Bloody History of Britain (Without the Boring Bits!) by John Farman
An Unsuitable Job for a Woman by P. D. James (though I’d give him a try since I do enjoy a good mystery, especially Agatha Christie‘s)
Besides buying a mountain of books, I borrowed these at a private library a fortnight ago:
My Little Blue Dress by Bruno Maddox.
Ballet Shoes by Noel Streatfeild.
White Boots by Noel Streatfeild.
And bought these at the junk pile (they sell books if there are multiple copies of the same title at only RM1!):
PS I Love You by Cecelia Ahern (I hate this book but I’m sure I can give it to someone who will love it)
The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown (I have a copy already, but for RM1, I can make someone happy with it)
The History of Mr Polly by H. G. Wells (This is for me, I’ve been meaning to widen my classics repertoire)
Lucy Sullivan is Getting Married by Marian Keyes
The Last Juror by John Grisham
