Stacking The Shelves

As a self-confessed bookworm that I am, I’m always on the go to find new treasures that I will dig into. Last week, I was browsing my Facebook account and found an online bookshop. They were selling second hand books in mint conditions for a cheaper price. 

I was contemplating so hard, whether to buy it or not. But gawd, I couldn't resist it! I wanted it so bad. Seeing those books makes me drool and makes my heart beats so fast. 

Alas! After minutes of battling with myself, I sent the seller a personal message that includes the title of the books that I want. The seller replied promptly. I was taken aback when he replied and told me that he would deliver the books personally. Later I found out that the owner of that online shop was our distant relative who lives near our house. Oh well, I guess being a bookworm runs in the family.

The books were delivered last Friday morning.  I couldn’t help it! I was smiling the whole time while he’s telling me details about the schedule of new upload. He even told me that if I wanted a book and if it’s not on his album, I could send him a list and he will look for it. I was thrilled when I heard it! 

So without further ado, here’s my new book hauls! *drumroll please*

The Prisoner of Heaven by Carlos Ruiz Zafon (HarperCollins 2011 Edition, Hardcover)
The Name of the Rose by Umberto Eco (Book Club Associates 1984 Edition, Hardcover)
The Crosssing by Cormac McCarthy (Alfred A. Knoft 1994 Edition, Hardcover)
The Help by Kathryn Stockett (Penguin Books 2010 Edition, TP)
The Road by Cormac McCarthy (Vintage International 2007 Edition, MMP)
State of War by Ninotchka Rosca (Anvil Publishing Inc. 2007 Edition, NP)

How about you guys, what books did you bought recently that you just can't wait to dig into? :)

  1. Hello! I was wondering what that online bookshop you're talking about. Can you give me the link of their online shop? I really want some new books (even if it's secondhand) but I'm on a tight budget so yeah, I might find some books that I like there.
