Your Next Cheap Book Fix

Time to stock up on some cheap reads? I snapped the picture above at BookXcess a few weeks back on my first visit to the shop since it had expanded. Was pleasantly surprised, not just at the cheap prices and the wide choice of titles, but also how pleasantly 'squidgy' the bookshop is. The only reason that I'm not there all the time ... well, you guys can fill in the blanks.

And they also have a snazzy new website with lists of all the books in stock and a map to help you find them.

Pay Less are having another warehouse sale this weekend, this time at the YMCA. (Click to enlarge the map.) I might be tempted meself!


And here's another source of cheap books, found via good-ole Facebook!
Secondhand and nearly-new books for sale at The Dram Projects to raise funds for the MY-UK Project, a creative arts exchange between Malaysian and British kids.

The aim of this exchange is to, ultimately, enable the participants to share with their communities what they have learnt, through performances and workshops.

I've had a look at the Bookxcess fiction price list, and it's quite impressive! I think I'll go pay them a visit soon. Maybe become a regular. Unfortunately, AmCorp Mall's parking rates have gone up - maybe only for the Chinese New Year.

BookXcess hasn't updated their book list in a few months; still need to go there yourself. :P

There's also a free 3 year membership for purchases over RM100.

Yes, excellent reason to visit BookXcess soon, especially as I need to get a couple of Isabel Allende books, which I hope they have there.

i love bookxcess, mostly because i found a copy of piers morgan's memoirs (from his tabloid days) and it cost less than RM 20.

happy, so happy.
