Big Bad Wolf 2013

Much smaller haul than my previous years. It’s buying fatigue, I suppose, due to my burgeoning library and growing list of Kindle books, Audible and Comixology buys. Can’t keep up with the consumption, so I’m limiting myself to just the ones I really like.

Haul from Big Bad Wolf

Ok, so here’s what I got at the Big Bad Wolf Books sale today:

Book Haul from Big Bad Wolf

It’s starting to get silly for me to go to bookshops when the warehouse sales offer such a delectable selection of books at a price that simply cannot be denied.

A regular paperback is approximately RM35.  I get these at RM8 each.  Some a little more, but nothing more than RM12 or RM15.

  • Gentlemen of the Road, Michael Chabon
  • Busted Flush, George RR Martin, et al.

Long overdue update on book hauls

It’s been a while, but now I’m catching up on a lot of overdue personal tasks.  One of them happens to be an update to this site.

These 2 were purchased separately – the Ross was really a fantastic find in a book sale bin. 

At another binge, I picked these up:
