In Which My Dad Shames Me For Buying More Books : Great World City + Big Box [IRL Adventures]

Yes I know I have a lot of books that I still haven’t read on my shelves, but buying books is an investment in my future!!! Kind of……………!!!!!!!???!!??

My dad is mean and always shames me when I come home with more books, even if it’s from the library!! But mostly if I buy them. Especially when it’s from a book sale. Because that means buying more than one.

Great World City


So as you can see, there was an ENORMOUS book sale some weeks back in the atrium area of the Great World City shopping mall. I can’t remember who ran the sale, but it was full of new books!! A lot of them had been published in the last 7 or so years, and some slightly farther back than that. But the great majority of the fiction books were quite recent.

As you can understand, this made me very, very, hungry.

I found out about it purely by chance!! I went there before a job to have lunch, and instead spent all my time browsing the books and ended up getting 3 books. You could get 3 for 15 dollars, if I remember correctly.

After I finished work I met up with my friends back there again with the intention to have dinner and watch a movie, which we did. But I then decided to give into the siren song of the book sale and just go and buy 6 more.

Big Box

This book sale was aaaall the way out in Jurong and was hosted by the same people who did the book warehouse sale that I went to way back last year. I posted about it too, CLICK!


These SG Book Sale guys never disappoint with the books that they bring and even though I only got 3 this time – for 10 dollars to boot!! Most of their selection were books I either have already read or bought at the sale above!!

You can follow their updates and find out where their next sales will be via their Facebook page HERE. [ ]


I gotta say, it really warmed my heart to see a lot of kids there too also looking for books to buy for themselves, or rather, get their parents to buy for them!!
