Last week I went to stock up on my young adult literature fix at the Pay Less Books Warehouse Sale. I managed to pick up half a dozen books for RM17 in about 20 minutes (I just concentrated on the junior section, knowing that their fiction section is pointless), before rushing off to college for an exam (haha, you’d think I’d be worried about the exam instead of buying books).
So this is my lot:
The Cay by Theodore Taylor (I stupidly gave away this book when I bought a copy called Timothy of the Cay, thinking it’s the same book with a slightly different title – that happens, doesn’t it? – but it’s actually the prequel/sequel of The Cay!), RM3
The Trouble with Tuck by Theodore Taylor, RM2.50
Hatchet by Gary Paulsen, RM3
The Eyes of the Amaryllis by Natalie Babbitt, RM3
Blubber by Judy Blume, RM2.50
Octavia by Jilly Cooper, RM3
But before that, I forgot to write about a few books I bought before from various places. All discounted, of course, though not that cheap for some.
My Uncle Oswald by Roald Dahl, RM5 from the flea market. I was so happy to find this because I wanted a proper copy, instead of the photocopied one I have, but it’s too expensive to get it from the bookshop for a brand new one. And this one’s in pretty good condition for a secondhand copy.
The Enormous Crocodile by Roald Dahl, price forgotten, from Big Bookshop Warehouse Sale. It’s in glossy magazine-ish paper, as opposed to your typical paper-y, uh, paper.
Model Behaviour by Geraldine Ryan for RM3 from said warehouse sale. It was the cheapest so bargain-irresistible me naturally couldn’t resist. 😐
Ads R Us by Claire Carmichael for RM12 from said warehouse sale.
Wicked! by Jilly Cooper, RM18, from Book XCess, a bookshop specialising in selling brand-new books at secondhand prices! How can you beat that? They were selling Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code for only RM12! Too bad I already have a copy.
The Man Who Counted: A Collection of Mathematical Adventures by Malba Tahan, a gift from a friend.
