I was extremely upset on Saturday with certain developments that are happening in the family wrt the new house. I don’t want to be hasty and write something that I will regret later. So let me give that some time, to see how things go ahead. This post is about something that totally flipped my sullen mood. 🙂
I found a book store, when Bg and I had gone to Jayanagar 4th Block. We were simply walking in the street, when I saw a board, which told that books are for sale, Rs. 200 per kg or Rs.60 per book. I have previously bought books from such clearance sales and thinking that it must be something similar, I stepped in. I was amazed by the number of books the place held!! It was a like a maze with more and more rooms and even more books! They said they have that outlet open there always. It wasn’t just a temporary sale. My mood instantly switched on! 🙂
You need a lot of time to go through the books. You will have to do extensive searching to get a book of your choice maybe. But there’s also a chance that you won’t find the books by the regularly popular authors. They would all be gone, I guess!
Previously in a similar sale I had bought few books. One of it was “The Glass Lake” by Maeve Binchy. It was a great book and I loved reading. So this time when I found the whole collection of her books, I couldn’t resist myself. I bought two of her books. I also bought “Chocolat” by Joanne Harris. I had watched the movie and liked it. Also I remember TGND reviewing it. So it got promptly picked! I also bought three other books, written by authors whose works I haven’t read till now. These sales give you such opportunity! I read the back cover and picked them up.
Here’s my loot –
To say the least, I am super happy!! 😀
Edited to add: For everyone who was keen to knowing where the place is. You will find this place if you walk from the Cool Joint junction in Jayanagar 4th block towards Pai Vijay. It is on the same road as Cafe Pascucci and Kala Mandir. The store was named “The Book Bonanza”.
P.S: Please don’t take take along an uninterested husband, who will make you leave in 45 minutes. You’ll need a lot of time! 😀
