Kalahari Sale Book Loot

I love book sales, and I love when a book sale has prices that are so amazing that you almost do not believe your eyes, and then you scurry to get your items chosen and hurry to get it paid so that you can get them to deliver the wonderful books to you as soon as possible because a bibliophile and new books are the things that dreams are made of. So let me start with the books that I rather sadly was beaten to:

Anne Frank's Diary - A HARDCOVER
Condoleeza Rice's bio - also a HARDCOVER
Kendra Wilkinson's book - A HARDCOVER

It breaks my heart that these titles slipped through my fingers, but I'll get them next time.

All the books that I did get were only R25 each - an amazing sale for 5 books at R125 is like a once in a lifetime happening here in South Africa - so when it happens you do not think rationally, you just take the books you can get!

So here are the books that I got:

The Soft Covers:

James and the Giant Peach
The Marriage Plot
Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf
Thirteen Reasons Why
True Compass

The Hardcovers:

Kris Jenner and all things Kardashian
The Sookie Stackhouse Companion Novel
Gone with the Wind
The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me

The Audio Books:

The Twits
Spoken from the Heart

15 brand new stories to delve into - 13 books, and 2 audio books. This is better than Christmas!!! I would like to thank my mom for lending me the money to get these amazing titles, since I am such a broke book worm right now.


  1. You managed to get some awesome reads. How ridiculous was that sale? I managed to get hold of a book that was practically just released. For R25. I hope they do a sale like this again. It's not good for the wallet, but it's good for our book-loving souls!

  2. It was ridiculously ridiculous!!! I hope they'll have another one, and whilst it's not good for the wallet or the budget, it does save you money. For my 15 books I paid R375, but had I bought them outside of the sale, it would have cost me almost R2500. So it does save you alot too. I was quite restrained at this sale.


What did you think? I would love to read your comments.
