A Book Frenzy And A Book Blunder

After reading so much about this BookXcess from Smallkucing, we finally went there today. Boy! We nearly drowned in the sea of cheap books! If you have read about my "Bribery" earlier, you would have noticed how much daddy and mummy loved buying books for me.

Well, this time, since we had a very limited time to spare (we only went there at 7pm, after spending nearly 10 hours in MidValley earlier), the stash that we managed to grab were rather limited too...

Books for everyone in the family (the most expensive was only RM19.90!)

Mummy nearly went berserk when she saw two big shelves filled with the Little Miss books! Being a great fan of these books, she tried hard to control her compulsive shopping, and grabbed only 6 of the 12 available titles...

Little Miss books and a Care Bears activity book for me

When she browsed the books at home, uh oh... she found the stories too familiar. Big mistake! She should have browsed the books at the bookstore and not at home!!! Luckily they were only RM2.90 each. She realized that the stories from the 6 books were actually "extracted" from this book...

The Little Miss Story Treasury bought by Kau-foo

This much-treasured book actually has a compilation of 15 stories (so mummy can forget about the rest of the titles on the shelves of BookXcess haha). Well, what shall we do with the redundant books now? We will be giving them away. Let's see who the lucky kid(s) is ;-)

The free Playboy bunny book thong

For our RM122 purchase today, we were rewarded with a free 3-year BookXcess membership (we can foresee more frequent trips there hehe) and a book thong. Of the many cute designs that they had, I just had to choose this "Playboy" rabbit haha!

Oh what a day! We've been out shopping the whole day, for nearly 12 hours (9.45am to 9:15pm). Finally, I went to bed with a new bedtime story...

  11. BOOKS! I love books. Good bargain... In Penang I mostly go to MPH and head to their bargain section first.... Ziyi is mad about DORA at the moment. See whether I can find good Dora books next time.
