Ever since I could read, I have been obsessed with books. Whenever I received a book as a gift, I would bury my face in it and inhale the pages – okay, truth be told, I still do that to this very day. As I’m typing this I am actually getting excited about the thought of it. Proud bookworm right here, don’t judge!
I could spend hours curled up with a good book and I made it my mission to make sure that #TheKid enjoyed reading as much as I did. Little did I know that her obsession with literature would far surpass mine. From the age of about when she was 8 I would take her to toy stores, she would look at a few toys and then we would leave without purchasing anything – no problem!
Walking into Bargain Books on the other-hand was a whole different story. We would never leave the store without a book for each one of us. We would spend at least an hour at Bargain Books, choosing the perfect book to take home with us. This is probably when I knew that I was winning at parenting.
Eight years later and nothing much has changed, except of course we have moved on from Diary of a Wimpy Kid to young adult fiction such as Simon vs. the Homosapiens Agenda, Divergent and Mrs. Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.
Bargain Books has always been easy on my pocket and like many other bibliophiles, I look forward to their warehouse sale. This year the Bargain Books Warehouse Sale will take place on 27 April from 9am to 5pm at 10 Mymoena Crescent, Athlone Industria, Cape Town. You can find paperbacks from as little as R50! Guess who will be giving away books as Christmas presents this year.
The sale is for one day only, so get there early to avoid disappointment.
