Books for sale!

So the reason why I haven’t been blogging much lately is because I’ll be moving to Canada soon. This August to be exact.

I’ve been busy with preparations and stuff, and I’d also had to choose which of my books to leave behind, since I can’t bring them all with me. =( It was hard to let go of most of them, but it was necessary.

Anyway, I decided to sell them to make a little extra money. We are moving to a totally new place after all, and the extra money would come in really handy.

So take a look at the books listed and see if there’s anything you’ll like.

Books for sale! Cheap!

All prices are in Ringgit Malaysia.

Pick-up only, meaning you come and pick them up from me, unless you prefer me to mail them to you, in which case, you pay for the shipping and handling fees.

All fiction are RM5 to 10!

Reference books and textbooks are RM10 to 20!

Nothing higher than RM20!

Those who buy more than RM100 worth of books may get some free Bookcrossing books! (While “stocks” last. You can’t choose the books, but I’ll try to give you suitable ones based on your apparent reading tastes.)

I’m open to negotiating better deals if you buy more books, but please be reasonable!! I’ve spent a lot of money on these books, traded good books for some of them, have given away a lot of books for free, and I’m still selling these books for a really good price!

Email me at bettysbooks (at) gmail (dot) com and let me know which books you want. First email, first serve! Except for reference books and textbooks; if more than one person wants them, best offer gets them. 

Sorry about the bad pics. All the books are in very good to NEW condition! Some of them are old, but still in very good condition. Some have labels or names written in them. Some of them are NEW and have never even been read! (I have a book-buying addiction that makes me buy more books than I can read. =P)
