book purchases last week.




And, the best thing is - I got these books for 5 bucks each!

A colleague took me out for lunch last Friday in Bangi; and we dropped by this used goods store that sells almost everything! Kids clothes, furnitures, bags, drawings, kids toys, and BOOKS. Mannn you should've seen the collection - I don't think I've ever found a collection that dated way back to 70s, but this store. It was amazing.

I realized that I took novels and books for granted when I moved to Japan last few years; because in Japan, the most English books collection you could find is only like, TWO racks out of the hundreds racks of books in a bookstore. And that is including magazines. I spent years going in and out almost every bookstore in Hiroshima, Fukuoka, Shinjuku and Shibuya that I could find just to look for English novels; and even the boyfriend knows once we're in the bookstore, I'd always go home with something. English novels, InStyle magazine, anything. Because it is too hard to find a wide selection of English books there, unlike in Malaysia.

So when I saw the collection in the store, I couldn't go home without something. It isn't helping that there are so many to choose from, and that they come with a freaking 5 bucks price tag - the most expensive you could find is, well, 8 or 10 bucks. Still, a good bargain considering the condition of the books.

I foresee myself paying the store more visits after I've officially moved to the Bangi town. God help me.

I forgot the name of the store already, but it is one of the shophouses across PKNS. Look for one with the vintage look, you can't miss it :)


The book I'm currently reading, the third (and last) book in The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo series. I don't usually do crime-mystery sorta novels, but this one is an exception. Will do the review later, when I can finally get past the horrible plot that stamped in my head. Darn you Stieg Larsson.
