Although it’s been a while since my last post, I have been reading as rigorously as always.
AND, the same goes for book buying.
Today, I thought it’d be a lot of fun to share with you the books that I got yesterday.
All right, these are the books that my friend sent me yesterday.
From top to bottom:
- Lord of the Flies by William Golding
- Windwitch by Susan Dennard
- Always by Sarah Jio
- Lab Girl by Hope Jahren
- Becoming Nicole by Amy Ellis Nutt
- Truthwitch by Susan Dennard
The three from the bottom are actually what I asked my friend to get for me.
Although I had been curious to try Book Outlet or Thriftbooks where you can get books at much cheaper prices, living in Japan literally ruins the perk; it totally depends on how many books you buy and its total weight, but when I once attempted to buy books from Book Outlet, the delivery fees came to about $17.99 while the total price of the books came to less than 10 dollars.
You know what I mean? It is RIDICULOUS.
So, when my Twitter friend with whom I often do buddy reads and who lives in Guam asked me if there were any books I’d been meaning to get so that she could get them on my behalf at more reasonable prices and then send them to me when she’s back in Japan this April, I literally pounced on the offer.
Unfortunately, only Truthwitch was available on Book Outlet and I ended up getting other two books from either Amazon or Barnes & Noble, I think I got Truthwitch almost for a song (if my memory serves me correctly, it only cost like $3 or something for a hardcover. That was incredible). So I was happy 🙂
BUT THEN, as you can see, the package sent from her included THREE MORE BOOKS.
Windwitch, Always and Lord of the Flies.
I was like, “OMG, she shouldn’t have!!!” I momentarily lost for words.
Seriously, who would have imagined that she would throw in three more books!?!
Although I insisted that I would pay for them, she flatly refused saying that it’s been a lot of fun talking with me about books and that I don’t need to think about paying her back.
Oh, my gosh, I am so blessed to have such a wonderful friend 😀
Thank you so, so much!! I can’t thank you enough.
Looking at these books makes me so happy 🙂
They all look so pretty and gorgeous. I LOVE all of them.
There you have it, this concludes my Surprise Book Haul.
What are the books that you’ve got recently?
Whatever that may be, happy reading!
