Happy Bookday!

Wednesday, May 27, 2009

there are two places that i like very much to stay as longer as i want to.
the first place is cinema or theater. the second place is a bookstore.

yeah, a bookstore is like a my-own-rendezvouz if i get bored or if there are no good movies on cinema ;p. and i spend like an hour just to enjoy what's new on new-released racks or which books that in a best-seller racks. or just adding some books into my wish-list.

especially a bookstore with a discount promo. hell yeah! i can spend around two hours and a half there and drowned my self into the books and be autism for a moment. haha!

just like what i did on Tuesday May 26th, 2009 in Gramedia Bookstore in Grand Indonesia. there's a 30% discount of ALL ITEMS (exclude electronics) for their grand opening. well, it's my second time to attend a grand opening of that bookstore in my town. on my first time, i lost my consciousness and bought 4 books at once! (which a rare number for me to buy some books). and today, i did the same, bought 4 books at once and planned to go back because there 2 more books that i want to but i didn't bring enough money. huhu!

and i'm so damn HAPPY!
it's have to be celebrate! (well, that's why i'm writing this blog)

yeah! it's a happy day for me! because when i get into a bookstore, i rarely buy some books and rather putting their titles on my "wish-list" just because i never have enough money at the time. or if i have enough money, i need that for another bussiness. so it's like a window shopping for me if i "hang-out" in a bookstore. just see if there are a new titles, what's the best seller on that time, or reading and look sadly to the book of i wanted. pathetic!

but if there a discount, oh hell yeah undoubtly i can spend a lot of money for that. of course, it's because a discount promo is a rare event, isn't? and perhaps the items that has a discount may out of stock.

lately i bought a Periplus Map of Philipine only Rp. 10.000,- from its original price around Rp. 123.000,- it's almost 93% discount! ahahaha!

well i don't know if i a victim of commercialism or promotional events or something like that. what i do know is i really like books and rarely buy them (just because of money, argh!). and i really use the discount promo moment to fulfil my desire.

aaaaanyway, i just bought Lonely Planet Story (oh yeah, it's completing my travelling-book collection), Botchan (as my friend's recommendation, Peter Pan & The Shadow Thieves (to support my thesis, yeah don't ask! i'll explain later!), and The Old Man & The Sea (just because i want to begin to know about Ernest Hemingway). and i bought them for only Rp. 145.000,- from its original total price Rp. 190.000,- . yeah!!

and actually i really really want to buy Lonely Planet of Philipine but after 30% discount, it's still waaay too expensive for me. the original price is Rp. 303.000,- and if i bought it, it will be the-most-expensive-book-i've-ever-bought. well, i really have to think it again.

so that's it, i just want to share my happiness for today, for fulfilling my book wish-list. hm, i think i have to make a new wish-list. anyone want to recommend any books?

PS: the 30% discount promo of ALL ITEMS (exclude electronics) will be held until May 31, 2009 on Gramedia Bookstore in Grand Indonesia.
