Just Another Cheap Book Sales~~~

I used to saw a post in a forum...
Which there were a bunch of people arguing why not a lot of Malaysian like reading...
And one of the most common reasons that were given by them was...
Books in Malaysia are expensive like hell...
Which it might costs from below RM 10 until few hundreds dollar depending on type and thickness and printing quality and writers and publisher and local/import and list goes on...
But for most of the novel that I bought was around RM 10 to RM 50...
Somehow the Jogoya buffet or Levis jean or CK underwear was not really expensive to them... T_T...
So you get what I mean...
But it was undeniable that when comparing to other country like China or Taiwan or Singapore...
Book price in Malaysia is really something very depressing...
So that's why most of the time I will buy lots of them when they are cheap...
Something that I learnt from my mom when she was stocking up the grocery when they are cheap... ^^...
Anyway... I just went to Popular moving out sales in Section 14...
And I bought 5 books with only RM 25... Averagely RM 5 per book... How amazing... ^^...



Anyway... If you don't really a book lovers...
I'm totally fine with it if you say something like I don't like book or my feng shui crash with book or I'm allergy to books...
But if you say something like I love reading but books are expensive...
Yah right...

Unlike the english version one, the comic cost rm 2*.** for one. How to collect all the collection lei? I remember, last time i had to get Archies from the 2nd hand book store.

HNKP,
Agree... English book was a bit more expensive compare with Chinese book...
Usually I will wait for MPH warehouse sales then only stock up my English novel...
RM 10 for 2 in 1 novel... ^^...
