I was planning to show off the books I bought last week at the National Book Fair, Jaipur. And today’s Thursday Challenge on Books (Very Old Books, Library, Electronic Books, Piles of Books…) is a perfect example of hitting 2 birds with one stone.
The National Book Fair had a VAST array of books from various Publishers, Whole sellers and even Retailers. The best aspect was that almost all the books were available on discounted prices.
The books that I picked up were hardcover fiction from my favourite authors.
Ken Follet’s Whiteout, The Third Twin and Code to Zero.
Mary Higgins Clark is one of my favourite author, so, I picked up 6 of her books. One of the book is a 3-in-1!! So, a triple treat for me!
It’s been a loong long time, since I read Jackie Collins, so 2 books of hers were a part of my book pile!
And recently, I explored the world of Dean Koontz, so I grabbed his 4 suspense thrillers too.
The bestest feeling I have after the shopping spree at this book fair is that my collection of Mary Higgins Clark has now reached to 13 + 2!! Yaaayyy!!
And guess how much did I spend last week on these 15 books??
