October Buy

Ved suggested me the exhibition sale. They sell books by weight. 120Rs per kg. They have a great collection. I could find every genre at that place. Every time I visited the store,I spent almost 4 hours to search, read and then to buy the books.


Here’s the list I bought.

I’m lucky and I found 4 Reader’s Digest Condensed books.

I’ll read at my own pace and make sure to read each and every book I bought. Thanks a lot Ved for the suggestion. I already started reading ‘Sounding Off’ by Resul Pookutty. I’m enjoying it. I suggest every book lover to visit and pick their favorites before the seller closes the sale.
Location: https://goo.gl/maps/bxghsJmhUYq Store next to D-mart. It's not a permanent store. it's kinda Book exhibition sale.
