I think I’m pretty lucky when it comes to finding bargain books! I visited Book Sale, a local shop with discounted books, this week and bought some really cheap steals:
I’ve already read The Summer I Turned Pretty before! In fact, I’ve read the whole series. Sadly, I only had actual copies of the second and third book. I was really happy to have found a copy of the first book at Book Sale since I’ve been looking to complete my collection.
I squealed so much when I discovered Meg Rosoff’s How I Live Now and got it for only Php50 (that’s about a dollar or so)!!! If you don’t already know, How I Live Now was recently made into a film and is coming out soon. The movie stars Saiorse Ronan, who I just adore so much! I better read this in time for the movie.
The other two books, I pretty much bought out of a whim. I haven’t read Elizabeth Gilbert’s Eat Pray Love but I’ve always been curious why it was so popular. I’ve never seen the whole movie either so I have only a slight clue what the story was about. I found the cover of Stern Men really cute and simplistic though so I decided to get the book. I’ll probably have my mother read it first and check out if it’s any good. (I do that sometimes, especially when it comes to adult books) Love, Love, Love looks like a cute read although I’m not sure I’ll be reading it any time soon.
My digital bookshelf is also overflowing with new ebooks! Check ’em out!
