Big Bookshop Warehouse Sale Reprised
Yes, it's true I'm afraid. (See Bookfetish's comment to the previous post.) There is a Big Bookshop warehouse sale on in Atria, and I had to go along as soon as I heard ... never mind that I had just had a nice little spree at MPH with the book vouchers I'd collected (and thanks Eric for being my bookshelf guide!)
The warehouse sale is very tempting indeed. Most of the books are very recent with a lot of hardbacks and good quality paperbacks and plenty of choice. Prices are of course higher than at other warehouse sales, but at around RM18 for a trade paperback and RM12-14 for a mass market paperback, very affordable ... until you start filling up your little basket.
And don't worry about everything being sold out by the time you get there. The sale goes on to the end of December, the stock is piled high, and there are still 300 pallets of books not yet unpacked!!!!!
I got 11 books (for RM201) and am happy with the haul! Thank goodness I've made some room on my bookshelves ... but the real problem is making enough room in my life to read 'em all!
