I just started reading regularly this year, and so I've been introduced to a couple of places where I now regularly go to find books, mostly for bargain prices as books can be quite expensive in Malaysia. So I just wanted to share my go-to places to find books for bargain prices in Malaysia.
I've shared this link previously, and since then I've visited this bookstore several times and have bought a few books from here too. BookXcess has a few outlets in Malaysia, but this branch in Cyberjaya is my favourite. It's huge, looks awesome, and has a large collection of books to choose from.
And just today, I attended my first ever Big Bad Wolf sale where I bought a bunch of books for ridiculously low prices. Just as an example, there's a book I've been wanting to buy but have held off because of the RM80 price I saw online. I found the book at the BBW sale for just RM10!! That's almost a 90% discount! I might be going a second time this weekend, so who knows, I might end up buying a few more books.
Sometimes though I may not really have time to go look for books, which is where Book Depository comes in. The books here may not be as affordable as the books sold at BookXcess, but they are still relatively affordable, and there's a wider range of books which have interested me. I've actually bought quite a few books from this website as well. What makes it so appealing is that this site doesn't charge for delivery! They ship the books from the UK all the way to Malaysia for no charge. Nice!
What about you? I'm interested to know where you get your books from. Amazon? Local bookstore? Public library?
