Which makes me think.. should i wait and buy such books such as Harry Potter and the Half-blood Prince during book sale like these? There's bound to be an overwhelming supply. However, this will mean that i will only get it 2 years down the road!!! AARRGGHH.. will i be able to resist the wait?? Nah... don't think so. Anyway.. i have placed an order with the distributor of Harry Potter and he promised a discount.. *rubs my hands in glee* Hee Hee Heee!!
Some of the great buys that i got:
- Modern Library: The 200 Best Novels in English since 1950 by Carmen Callil, Colm Toibin (US$27.95) - S$5
- The Encyclopedia of Fantasy by John Clute (Editor), John Grant (Editor), Mike Ashley, Roz Kaveney (US$85) - S$8
- The Last Hero (Gollancz SF S.) by Terry Pratchett, Paul Kidby (Illustrator) (US$10.58) - S$6
There were other books that i bought... but don't think that i will list them cos i wanted to give them as gifts.. wait people call me El cheapo!!
Spent close to a hundred dollars at the sale. I'm great at buying books but lousy at carrying them.
Will give you the details of the sale just in case you are able to make it this weekend
