Today I dropped by Aksara for some therapy (checking out is extremely soothing for me – like going around the supermarket) only to find out that all their books are on SALE.
There were different stacks of books that were only Rp 50,000 (5 USD est.), Rp 75,000, Rp99,000, etc.
- There were also NEW books that were all 20% off.
- Some books on interior design are 20% off!
- There were many more sections that said 20%, 50% and 70% off
- All other books are 10% off
EEEEEEEP! Good thing I didn’t have much time so I was only able to buy a few books – GREAT STEALS!
Seriously Aksara is one of my guilty pleasures here in Indonesia. They have super awesome novelty/gift items and great books too! (Remember this book?) It’s not that cheap though – I can never find a book under 100,000 rupiah (Php 500 or 50 USD est.) so this sale is incredible!
Too bad i didn’t have much time to check out everything! (I had to pick up TD so he could make it to his tennis session). But I am happy to say that I bought 3 books for only Rp 50,000 each! (Go me!)
Click on the links below to see the books I bought:
- What’s that job and how the hell do I get it? The inside scoop on more than 50 cool jobs from the people who actually have them – basically I bought this because I want to check out these cool jobs that I might be able to do part-time and from home. One of the first jobs on the list is… yep you guessed it… BLOGGER. I might get tips on how to be a more successful one aye?
