As you all know, Borders Bookstores have had financial difficulties in the last few years. However, here in Australia, Angus & Robertson Bookstores and Borders were working together; and so when Borders finally had to close its doors, so did one of our longest running and most important book publishers and bookstores in Australia has to close its doors. And why not go out with bang at Garden City than with a 75% off all books sale. And today, Mum and I took off to that.
At first, she was there just to pick up a book; and I was there to be good and watch the people politely fight over the books that were left (as half the bookstore had already been emptied since this morning; and the store is closing on Sunday). Instead, Mum bought two books and I bought five. Yeah, I broke my promise to back off on my purchasing spree each month... so much for promises! But just look at what I got myself! All of these books are brand new and they were 75% off the full price! What bargains! And Mum bought me the really thick one... how good is that?We had a great day out and I'm glad that I got one book off my wish list... and that's a great thing. The one problem I have now is trying to find a place to put these books - as I do each time I go book shopping.
