this atlas was one of the hootest item ..from RM 320 reduced to rm 60 !!!



please buy .....





time to whack the wallet ....





I've been planning this for the past few months especially on topping up my books fund ( the $$$$ la). Due to some negative experience during the last BBW (that was 2009 ..I miss the 2010 :( ) ...I've decided to go during week day to avoid the massive crowd.

Going there is not really a big problem since it's the same direction going to my good friend house (mr Azhar Omar) and also because the organizer has done a very good job in putting up the direction banner along the way.

I was there around 11 am and since this is my first visit to MAEPS ...I'm impressed with the facilities. Parking is a breeze and the organizer also has prepared a feeder bus to assist visitors to the exhibition hall ....the distance is not very far but coming back with loads of books might be a big problem without using the feeder bus.

Pergggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh ....was my first reaction ...this is much bigger than I expected. The crowd was not as big as the weekend crowd. The books ..alamak !!! massive numbers ...the organizer did a good job in grouping it based on the genre or group of interest. My plan was to concentrate on biography especially adding up my baseball (yankees) collection.

Probably this is my day because in the sport section 70% is about baseball and most of the books is about yankees player (ada la jugak a bit of red sox) ...and since this sport is not really popular here ..this section in MINE ...:)

After 2 hours ....with the damage of RM 250 ...I'm back to my car with additional 40 books ...Thanks BBW ...this is by far the best ...BBW 2012 ..I'm expecting no less than this ..pleaseeee ...

What a massive haul you must have had with RM250! My housemates too came home with 2 Ikea bags full of new books. Wishing you many happy hours of reading, Abang Rizal!
