[BHE 322] Book Buying Ban Lifted: Book Depository Splurge

No thanks to Alameddine's "An Unnecessary Woman"


Myra here.

For the past several sundays, I have been featuring my library haul, mainly because i made this (failing) attempt to not buy books any longer, so i can read my shelves of TBR, or borrow from our libraries. Well, to be fair, I managed to cease purchasing books for around three months, I think. Then, I read Rabih Alameddine’s An Unnecessary Woman (see my review here), which made my TBR stack explode (see my wishlist of books here). Then, Book Depository gave this voucher for an additional 10% discount, over and above the already-discounted prices. And here we are, ladies and gentlemen. I am but human.
