[BHE 367] Pansing Box Sale (Part Three of Four)

... and it's baaack! Pansing Box Sale!

BHE

Myra here.

Initially, I was only planning on doing a 2-part feature of the Pansing Books Box Sale. However, we decided to go back during the second to the last day of the sale. My intention was to only purchase one box – and that’s it. But as you can see, I ended up with two. What can I do? Christmas came early.

Each box costs 50 dollars, and with some degree of artfulness and strategy, you can easily fit over 35 books per box. To say that this is such a bargain for brand new titles would be an understatement.

Pansing Books Box Sale Part Three: Picador and Vintage Classics

I am a sucker for classic novels. I used to devour them back when I was a university student without the resources to purchase these luscious titles. I am glad to finally own most of them. I will be very busy when I decide to retire. These gorgeous babies shall keep me company.

    Hi there,

    Great fun. Just wondering are the books in good condition? I am thinking for a school library. I know sometimes with these events sometimes the books are moldy.

    Thanks,
    Linda
