Epigram Books Sale: Final Day!

Epigram Books Sale

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! ๐Ÿ˜€ 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 ๐Ÿ˜€ ‘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. ๐Ÿ˜€

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. ๐Ÿ˜€ 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? ๐Ÿ˜€

**There’s 20% discount for their online store, tillย 11.59pm on 1 July. Use codeย WER7 when you check out. You’re welcome.

Epigram Books Sale: 10 Books For $20 (Selected Titles Only)

Epigram Books sale

I went all the way to Epigram Books’ office this morning, as I’d found out about their book sale which started last week. Apparently, selected books (and notebooks) are going at $20 for 10. I found the selection really small. In the picture above, you see a guy standing next to the main area with all the books, and then there’s the smaller bookshelf next to the windows with theย NotBooks (a.k.a notebooks). And that’s all there is.

The NotBooks are all going at 10 for S$20, regardless of size. Needless to say, I picked the bigger ones. ๐Ÿ˜€

The NotBooks all have punny quotes on the covers. My favorites are: “I am not perfect. But parts of me are pretty amazing.”, “I am not messy. I know where everything is” and “I am not kiasu. I am Singaporean.” ๐Ÿ˜€ The usual retail price is something like $12. So at $2 each, they are good buys!

And here are those which are actually books:

I managed to buy 20 items, though most of them will end up as gifts! ๐Ÿ˜€

Also, I’m really looking forward to the annual Books Box Sale (that’s not by Epigram Books). There’s always this internal struggle: As an author, I’d really love for people to buy books at full price and support local authors. But as a consumer and book lover, book sales help me stretch my dollar and make me very happy. So… buy 10 books at a discount and buy 1 at full price? ๐Ÿ˜€ I really do think Epigram Books has some really outstanding authors. I’m currently reading Annabelle Thong by Imran Hashim. Before this, it was The Good, The Bad and the PSLE by Monica Lim. Both are amazing.
