I've Gone Crazy!  

Posted by Wanie Idayu

Yup you heard me right. I’ve gone crazy! Book crazy that is. Yesterday, I have bought RM138.40 worth of books! :p I only got to write about it today coz yesterday the internet was down and so I can’t make post… Anyways there are 10 books altogether, and if you think about it, it’s a bargain coz on average, 1 book only costs like RM13++ , PLUS it’s tax deductible!! Huhu.

I bought it @a bargain bookstore named BookXcess where they sell previous years books at a very cheap price. Nope, it is not a “Rent-A-Book” or secondhand book shop. The books there are definitely first hand / new. Other than renowned names like Sidney Sheldon, John Grisham, JRR Tolkien; they also have non-fiction, biography, self-help, love, kids, etc (the usual categories you would see @ a bookstore). The same books will still be sold at the same price @popular book chains such as MPH, Popular, etc. etc., even if they’re already outdated. Believe me, I’ve checked.

Anyway, check out the titles that I have bought:

(1) The Doomsday Conspiracy

After he uncovers a witness, they are brutally murdered by their country's government. Bellamy uncovers an international conspiracy.
