See what I bought at the MPH Warehouse Sale!

I have finally finished wrapping all the books I bought yesterday. I wrap the covers of all my books with plastic protective sheets as a part of my book care exercise. Me loves me books very much...

I really think it was a great bargain; the books are new and they're current titles. Hardbacks ranged from MYR69.90 to MYR85.90 (~USD20 to USD24) and were sold at MYR15 (~USD4). Paperbacks ranged from MYR5 to MYR23 (~USD1 to USD6). These prices were for the books I bought. Here are the book piles--broken down into three:
