Catch Of The Day – RM5 Fiesta 2016

I can’t sit still when I knew that the Popular RM5 Fiesta has made a comeback in September. I could never in the world miss this event!

My sci-fi pile has grown ever since I delved into that genre, I was hyperventilating (almost) when I found Pathfinder series — HARDCOVER!! — alas they only have book 2 and 3, so I have to buy book 1 separately to complete the collection.

Picked up scattered Hitchhiker’s guide too — hoping one day I could complete the collection.

Oh and I terribly regretted not buying the whole series of Cassandra Clare’s Mortal Instruments in the MPH sale few months ago… thus I just grabbed the only book that’s there 😥 Secretly hoping again to complete yet another collection.

Here’s my treasure loot *grinning from ear to ear* ❤

Catch Of The Day – Book Haul While I Was Away

I couldn’t resist whenever there’s an MPH Warehouse Sale. As I remembered there were less crowd in the sweltering hot afternoon and the place was only powered by electrical fans.

Despite the heat that made browsing uncomfortable, I kept digging looking for treasures from the book pile.

Chinese books were scattered all over but I had fun searching for them because at a 90% discount, these books were the cheapest I’ve came across any sales!

Super delighted to have found especially Japanese to Chinese translated literature!

The amount of books that we bought.

Catch of the day! Here are books I got from the RM5 Fiesta book sale 2 days ago.

  • The minute I walked in I spotted Clare Vanderpool’s Navigating Early. Having read her awesome first book Moon Over Manifest, I’m thrilled to find her second book.
  • Too happy to unearth Maeve Binchy’s books, been searching for her work for ages. And getting her debut novel Light a Penny Candle is amazing!
  • Amy Tan’s book is a signed copy, how could I not get that???
  • Two Michael Ondaatje’s book added into my collection. After reading The English Patient I wanted to read more of his novels.
  • Hit the Ground Running has a very interesting blurb for a non-fiction, can’t wait to get started.

I’m off to read more books, see you later and thanks for reading ❤
