  Heart, Be Still... For The Love of Books Part 2
Haha, kalau nak tgk aku gila mcm mak datin masuk kedai emas, just send me to Pay Less Book stores. My favourite is the one in Ampang Point, which is also their biggest outlet so far. Wow, I dunno about you guys, but THIS is book heaven for me, walaupun buku2 yg dijual adalah buku second hand. Kalah Kino, MPH atau Borders ! (I mean, if I wanna browse thru’ the latest best sellers, aku akan pergi ke kedai2 buku ni, tapi kalau aku nak BELI buku sebagai koleksi library aku, aku akan beli di PLB). Last weekend, aku beli 10 TPB’s (trade paper- backs), seven of ‘em dah jadi movie. Antaranya Michael Cunningham’s The Hours, Laura Zigman’s Animal Husbandry, Thomas Kenneally’s Schindler’s List, Miss Smilla’s Feeling for Snow, The Lone Ranger & Tonto Fist Fight in Heaven (novel by a Native American, Sherman Alexie,yg telah difilemkan sebagai Smoke Signals), Mary Reilly, Like Water For Chocolate, dan banyak lagi. Dan boleh teka berapa aku bayar untuk kesemua buku2 ni ? RM24 !!!!!!! Kenapa ? Tak percaya ke?

Image hosted by Photobucket.com I got this one for a mere RM2.40 !!

Actually, kalau rajin browse (the owner of fingers of steel mcm aku, cuma guna jari jek – hey ! utk pilih buku atau DVD la…), kau boleh dpt National/ International Bestsellers, Booker /Pulitzer Prize winner, dan berbagai2 lagi. And I managed to get Buddies, a novel by Ethan Mordden (said to be one of the most prolific gay writers around), hehe, boleh la compare ngan NZ’s works dalam Daging Salai tu…;-)

And yes, Ikmal pun suka ke sini. Suka berlari2 along the aisles, sampai aku nak pilih buku pun susah… And yes, books for kids kat sini….fuh.. rambang mata nak pilih. All at a very affordable prices!

Zack ..... I suka Payless too! Rambang mata whenever I am there. Yup, yang kat Ampang Point tu. My 'playground' kalau nak shopping waktu kerja, or bila2. See you there one day, maybe? Who knows.
Yeah ! Look out for the half-sane mama in black shirt and jeans, running around like mad, chasing her curly 3-year-old son, usually with stacks of book in tow !
then, u must have saw the speck, shaggy guy who walks aloft, browsing tru literature section, haha, dats me definitely..anw, yes, pay less adalah treasure island aku dan azwan (have u tried the one near lrt taman jaya? i almost lepas maghrib coz of that place), we would always tag war on the books coz masing2 bergaduh nak beli...
smalam housemate smiley gi tempat tu..5 books for RM12.00. Best best gak citer yang dia beli...boleh la kan...buat isi masa lapang..
Yeah, Fadz, time flies when u're having fun (for nerds like us). Aku selalu gi sana malam weekends, and yeah, usually the last customer to check out with at least, something in tow.

Smiley, awak pun patut try la. Rambang mata !

Oh yes, just to share with u guys, I got an RM10 treasure kat PLB, the one i used as a reference masa Kunci Khazanah hari tu - Trivia Quiz Bible. It's got everything under the sun ! Yup, bertambah lagi koleksi buku trivia aku lepas ni...

I'm a number cruncher, married and a mother to 2 handsome young boys ~ Ikmal & Nabil. Also a self-confessed movie freak, a walking dictionary of useless facts and I just love swapping postcards. I love loud music, black t-shirts, good books and hot caramel macchiato. I hate hypocrisy, the colour pink, rude people, busy-bodies and those with 'holier than thou' attitude. :) I blog 'coz I hate talking. In real life, I'm this quiet person, often immersed in my own virtual world of obsessions, work and whatnot. Comments, suggestions, brickbats (even virtual cupcakes!) are loved, as long as you use the proper channels a.k.a the comments thingy or my e-mail ~ zackzip [at] hotmail [dot] com.
