Spotted a post on Epigram Books‘ Facebook Page that it’s the last day of their book sale today, so I decided, on a whim, that I’d go check it out. And I found many ‘new’ titles that were not available during my first visit. And this round, I bought 40 books. It’s a really good deal because it’s just $20 for every 10 books, so each item cost me only $2! 😀 But lugging all these home is no joke. Thankfully, I took the MRT trains during off-peak hours. Phew.
I think my favorite buy would be the ‘LKY: Political Cartoons’ by Morgan Chua, in hardcover no less! I’ve got two copies and I’ll ‘gift’ them to my pals Samy and Steven. (If you’re reading this, MEET UP WITH ME SOON 😀 ‘cos the postage would probably cost more than the price I paid for the book. Haha!) Also, I have 4 copies of ‘Mdm Kwa: The Life of Mrs Lee Kuan Yew’, also in comic form, by Morgan Chua. My pal Melinda’s definitely gonna get a copy. Who the other 3 will go to, I have not decided yet. 😀
Gosh. I really do LOVE book sales. Some women get a high when they purchase a branded bag. I get ecstatic when I see books at such great discounts. Sometimes I don’t even know who I’m getting some of those titles for, but I’ll just grab them first anyway. 😀 As one of the Epigram NotBooks says, “I am not kiasu. I am Singaporean.”
The usual price of those notbooks is $12.90 (large) but I bought them at $2. *sheds tears of joy*
*And it’s not a spelling error: they really are called NotBooks though they are notebooks, ‘cos they are not books, geddit? 😀
**There’s 20% discount for their online store, till 11.59pm on 1 July. Use code WER7 when you check out. You’re welcome.
