July edition, because I’m pretty sure I’d be hoarding again on August and September. But for this month, the Fully Booked sale urged me to hoard books as much as I did last year. For some reason, I haven’t been buying much this year. Last year, I’d frequent book sales almost every week and come home with a book or two. When it’s payday, I’d sometimes buy at least 4. When there’s a sale, well, we really shouldn’t really talk about that. Hee.
Sadly, I haven’t had much time to read this year. Maybe that’s why I’ve been avoiding bookstores and had been quite stingy in buying. But when I learned about the Fully Booked sale, I dragged myself to their branch at BGC, with a handy list of books I wanted to buy. So instead of going home on a Saturday, I went straight to Taguig and arrived too early, Fully Booked was still close. Haha.
There are nearer branches of Fully Booked but I opted to visit the one at BCG for wider selection (5 floors, yo!) and I don’t think I’d find the books I’m looking for at MOA or Greenbelt. And when I finally entered Fully Booked BCG, I was so confused because pretty much everything on my list was there! I was shocked to see tons of copies of Lamb when I couldn’t even find it anywhere. Most of Chuck Palahniuk’s books were there, too. You have no idea how confused I was. I disciplined myself to not exceed my budget so I had to let go of one too many good books. I shed a few tears.
That day, I made some pretty important decision. Haha. Also, it’s only 20% off so books were still not cheap, based on my standards anyway. I opted to buy the books that I know I wouldn’t have the heart to buy on its regular price.
In the end, here are some of the books I bought:
