Last week, I shared my loot during the recent book sale here in Singapore. Since the book fair lasted for three days, I made sure that I came during the second day as well. My efforts were rewarded as there was a much sweeter deal with one box going for 100 dollars regardless of how much each of the books cost. Even more savings!
