It’s because of my good friend J, that I kept seeing this book popping up in my radar. First I loaned it from the library last April and I love it and read it with glee. Here’s my review.
Then I saw it once again in the charity shop that I go to every week, for £1 and I thought “nah! I don’t think I want to get it”. So I left it sitting on the shelf until someone bought it.
and then today I saw the book in the withdrawn shelf of my local library for 20p!!! 20p for a brand new book albeit a stamp that says “Withdrawn”.. GIVE it to me anytime!! I’ll buy it all with 20p!!! 😉
So here’s the condition of the book, as you can see it’s brand new, no creases, no dog ears.
and I also got another two books for £1. One for theory driving test in the UK which God knows when I am going to take it. Another is a biography of Mao, both books are withdrawn stocks from the library. Besides a little tear and water smudge, both book conditions look absolutely fine to me.
I asked the librarians how often do they clear their stocks, she didn’t quote a specific time frame, but it is quite frequent. Charity bookstores, withdrawn stocks from the library, book sales at the Doctor’s clinic for 25p…. Can someone just pay me enough salary so that I could stay home and READ???!!!
It’s all your fault J, because of your frequent chanting of the book, I finally own Twenties Girl. 😉
