It was exhilarating to see what seemed like an endless sea of books.
Whole expo hall was stacked with millions of English books comprising of genres like self-help, business, fiction, crime, mystery, YA, reference, cookbooks, children and etc. No matter thick or thin; hardcover or paperback, every book on sale is priced at RM5 each (~USD1.20).
This sale is still going on at the time of posting, you may find the details I’ve posted earlier here — The RM5 Fiesta (2015) Is Coming Soon!
Surprisingly the crowd was not too packed for a Saturday afternoon. Guess it’s due to the sluggish economy.
Took me almost 4 hours to browse through just non-fiction and fiction. I’ve skipped children, cookbooks and reference materials.
As for the condition of the books, those with multiple copies stacked at the highlighted area were all new; those spine up display contained mixed condition — new, slightly worn, compressed and a few out of shape.
Most books I noticed were intact and had no missing pages. I was lucky that the books I wanted were all in pretty good condition.
More than 50% of the hall was dedicated to fiction books. Patience is required as the books were not in alphabetical order.
Will the stock deplete? I doubt it because I saw working staff opening and replenishing boxes of books onto the tables.
Near the exit at the end of the hall they have a segment selling stationery, arts and craft supplies.
Cashier counters were aplenty and no long queues observed.
I was excited and happy to have discovered several books from my favourite authors ❤ They were lovely finds.
Stay tune tomorrow as I shall post my “Catch of the day — Book Haul”. 😀
