I have a confession to make. I just cannot resist myself whenever I come across a book sale. I'll go bonkers! Normally it's easier to avoid the temptation because of the travelling one has to make to a book fair. But this time around, it's reversed because the book fair came to me! Not to me literally but to my office.
Book Xcess did a book fair at the lobby of my office and what convenience for us book lovers. How can I not make several pit stops anytime I can to browse through the books and see which books I can bring home. A chance not to be missed since most of the time their book fairs are held in shopping centres or exhibition centres. The book fair was held for three consecutive days and the response were overwhelming. I hope they come back again to do more book fairs in my office.
I was like a kiasu person grabbing the books I wanted and told the Book Xcess staff to hold the books for me because if I spend more than RM100 worth of books, I can apply to be a Book Xcess member. Then on the last day of the book fair when I finally did my payment, I made sure that it's more than RM100. That crazy huh?
So let me share with you the books I took home..hehe.

|Couldn't resist this book because of the 5 jigsaws inside and it's a book of manners.|
|A two-pages shot of the book inside. Elizabeth already tackled the jigsaws herself.|
|An activity book for Joseph that comes with 50 gold stars and sticker badges.|
|Simple activities to prepare Joseph for pre-school. Gold star stickers to reward him after he finished a page.|
|A workbook for Elizabeth.|
|She's not doing so good in the Maths department, so I figure this book can help her practise.|
|Another activity book for Joseph.|
|Some 'note-to-parents' inside the activity book and the contents.|
|This is what I meant by the pull tabs. You pull the tab and there'll be some movement as if Lightning McQueen came to live.|
|An interesting box book. The title says it all. Book costs RM 19.90.|
|It comes with a book with lift-up flaps, some X-rays and some gadgets to experiment how your body works.|
|As usual, my princess asked for a princess book. So I got her this thick Disney Princess storybook.|
