Cheap Books, Anyone?
The word "Book-Fair" for me and Nino might be sounds like "Mango-Sale" for a shopaholic.
Nino and I are not a big spender on anything but books.
In the Sydney Uni Book Fair last week, we bought books like crazy, as those were very-very-very-very cheap (even if you convert it into Rupiah).
So, Didi got several good books including Where's Wally? (soon become our family's favourite book), Where Did I Come From Book, Pop Up Book, several early reading materials (for 5 cent each, crazy!), and many more...
Nino got some heavy-and-serious textbooks you-dont-want-to-know-what. Lucky him! Also Covey's Leadership book for $2, Rich Dad Guide for Investing for 50cent (we've already read it in Indonesian, actually), and many more...
I also got my favorite: Sophie Kinsella's for only $1, The Last Time I saw Mother for $1, Bryce Courtenays, Adrian Mole's Diary (two books), Oxford English Dictionary for $2, Chicken Soup for The Teenage Soul (hahah, but who knows maybe I need it sometime, it's cheap anyway), some recipe books (pegangan hidup selama di sini, otherwise we're starving), and many more...
We haven't finished yet. In the last day, we bought $10-for-a-box books. And to feed our greediness, we got 21 books in a box. Huff!!!
(like I have time to read them all, hehehe...)
