I came across the Book Sale through Career-hubs when there was an advertisement to volunteer for the event. I was thinking about volunteering, but I wasn’t in the right headspace to do so. Instead, I attended the book sale as a customer.
It was either back in March or April where my friend and I attended the book sale. The book sale was held at the HBF Arena in Joondalup. I wasn’t sure what to expect, or how much the books would’ve been, but I went anyways because it was for charity and I love reading.
When I got to the venue, I bought a box full of books because the prices started from $1 to $5, and that’s an awesome price for well-known books or books that are in great condition.
These were the list of books I’ve purchased from March-April Book Sale 2017:
- The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky (click here for my review).
- Murder in Amsterdam by Ian Buruma
- Mao’s Last Dancer by Li Cunxin
- Looking for Alaska by John Green
- Jasper Jones by Craig Silvey
- Chinese Cinderella by Adeline Yen Mah
- All That I Am by Anne Funder
And a few I either can’t remember or took it to a book exchange shop.
This time around, I took my mother to the book sale with me – it’s the one I attended on Saturday. This one is held at UWA (under the clock tower) and for five days (details below).
The books that I bought this time around are:
- Side Effects May Vary by Julie Murphy
- Sarah’s Key by Tatiana De Rosnay
- Guilt By Association by Marcia Clark
- Testament of Youth by Vera Brittain
And other books I cannot remember off the top of my head!
So if you’re a book lover like I am, please take advantage of this book sale as you’ll find great deals as well as doing good deeds.
