This is the list of breakdown of the money:
Kak Tini's books RM 100
Halim's books RM 100
Izan's book RM 25
Kak Leila's books RM 35
TOTAL : RM 260 [which all of them owes me.. hehehe]
Dh's and my books RM 160
Alyaa and Fiqah's books RM 180
TOTAL : RM 340
All in all... based on the receipts... I saved a whopping RM 200+ for the books. We brought boxes [just like Aini said] before we enter the hall. I looked around the hall and noticed, as usual, the Chinese outnumbered the Malays and the Indians.
OK, OK, where is the quest for knowledge???
I know, I know, I mean, gosh, our siblings REALLY REALLY REALLY love books. When I was small, I used to think all of my friends are just like me.. and when they wrote their hobby as reading, I truly believe they love books like me. And my favourite place is, of course, book store!!
Back to the story, since the most popular author right now is Dan Brown, I saw lots of people just came and scooped all his books (which totalled to 4 books) just like that. I mean, who can resist the 30% discount on paperbacks? It was like heaven sent from God.
And the Ladybird series is like 40% off! And there is a markdown corner where everything they sell is under RM20.. Oh gosh! I think I want to faint, this is truly a bargain..
First, I attacked Meg Cabot's section - on Puan Dewi's request. Well, she did left a message to me saying to grab all the books written by Meg Cabot. It was fun! I saw a rack full of Meg Cabot's books and I grabbed all the chick lits books like they are going out of stock really soon.
We did pick up some Lemony Snicket's series and I bought myself a Dilbert book. The book is good because it teach me how I can look busy even though I actually do not have much work to do.
Dh bought himself Azizi Ali's book on property investment and I searched high and low for chick lits books [with exception of Meg Cabot, of course]. And Alyaa, to my shocking discovery, bought Shakespears and Oscar Wilde.. OK? I mean, who on earth would buy books from those authors? It's like you are a geek or something. But my sis is not a geek and she totally is not SO into them. I think Alyaa had some exception though, she is studying English Literature.. hehehe. I bet it is REALLY boring.
Last, I did grab books by Jeffrey Archer and John Grisham for Halim's sake.
On our way to the counter, I saw the cashier smirked at us [the cashier is a Malay, BTW] and asked the person next to him, "Buku tak habis-habis lagi ke walaupun ramai dah orang beli?" and point at our books which totalled to 30 books [I guess].
I just smiled [and was trying to tell myself not to smack him].
The deal was good.
Next on the list is PWTC Book Fair, this better be good! :)
