Penguin Warehouse Sales Loot!

Gotten Gaiman new book, Graveyard Book for RM15!

Gotten M is for Magic for RM15? Or RM10? Can't remember but still cheap!

Gotten Kitchen Confidential for RM10!

Gotten both of Holly's Inbox and its sequel for RM15 each!

Gotten The Tales of Beedle the Bard for RM10!

Bought Little Women sequels for both books at RM10 each!

The other books I am a little less excited about but am truly interested in trying out Trudi Canavan Black Magician Trilogy. Got that at RM10 a piece.

This time at my husband insistence I brought along a shopping bag (the free cloth bag you usually get when you go out shopping) to put the books I want to buy there. When the bag feel heavy I know it is time to stop. Also going there a bit more sensible in trying to find books by authors I really like, and limiting the books I wanna try so I won't regret when I find myself reading books that are a bit 'meh'.

V. happy. At least I can cross off some of my book's wish list.

1. The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman
2. The Wolves in the Wall by Neil Gaiman (though this is because I can't find it)
3. M is for Magic by Neil Gaiman
4. Fragile Things by Neil Gaiman (yes, we detect a pattern here. But with the number 4, end the Neil Gaiman books that I want)
5. Holly's Inbox by Holly Denham. (And its sequel)
6. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame Smith.
7. Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi
8. Kitchen Confidential by Anthony Bourdain
9. Comics: Fables Vol 5 (currently) by Bill Willingham and so forth
10. 1001 Tales of Arabian Night (In Kinokuniya this is selling for RM800++. Insane. But this is the 18th century unabridged one which also made for some painful reading).

Man. A lot that I had crossed off. Though, Fables is still ongoing so I never going to cross that off, and Persepolis I haven't finished reading yet because Borders is not stacking it anymore (Pbth! Ya think they're onto me now? ) and 1001 Tales of Arabian Night I kinda got with the classic edition of the compilation for some of the tales. Wow. Maybe I need some new list? Believe me that I had already started on that starting from Maud Hart Lovelace's on her Betsy-Tacy books.

Anyway, see this stack of books again and I think it is worth it.

Not pictured are 2 children's books I bought for my anak-anak buah and 1 recipe book. When queuing up to pay my husband looked at me and said "Buku-buku ni cukup setahun ok,". Geeezz. I promise to not buy any books for a year unless tetiba I found Matthew Reilly's new book that are selling cheap or Mary Janice Davidson vampire series that I am collecting or some really cheap authors from my wish list and Fables doesn't count. Hah!

You guys can still go there. The warehouse book sale is there till 11th Oct. Eyeris blog include a map on the location of the warehouse sale. Thank God I am going to KK the next weekend or I will be tempted to singgah there again.

Curi buku effi? But you got other moneymaking hobby Dila.

Encyclopaedia (ejaan tu pon aku tataw betul ke idak), yg mcm Britannica nye tu ke? Susah nak cari tu. Itu kenkadang bole jumpa kat Flea market. Kalo brand new beratus-ratus.

Which part did you find the #2 and #3 of the Black Magician Trilogy by Trudi Canavan? I could only find #1 :( Going on Saturday again.

Dils said...

From the entrance, go to the left. Last time I went, its somewhere between the middle and back and the books instead of on the tables, it is stack up high on the platform. There were few of her titles there.

Not sure if they reorganize it the next day. Heh. Good luck finding it!
