Belated Birthday Bags of Books; kumquats

Fullybooked Discount membership allows me a 40% discount on books if I buy them during my birthday month. I finally had time to go over there and just made it, last minute bookshopping on the last day of the month. Quite a haul and I won't be able to complain about the lack of reading material for awhile. Started reading two books already and should have a good list to review by the end of the month.

I also treated myself to a kilo of kumquats that are now piled in a tall column inside the glass vase on my table. They make a nice display, easy for me to reach in and grab a healthy orange nugget for a snack instead of eating candies or cookies.

40% discount on books purchased during the ENTIRE month! Any book? That's a great deal right there!

Yessiree, 40% cash, 35% card. :)
All I had to show was my discount card and another id with my bday on it (I wasn't sure any of my other ids had a bday on it, luckily the dive card does).

Wysgal - you can only spend it on one day during that month...so you just have to make a good plan of attack before going :)

Mila - I finally got my discount card...can't wait for October! :)

That's great Joey, I had originally planned to max out on the limit of P10,000 worth of books, but I didn't quite reach that level of book madness. A couple of books I wanted were out of stock so some of the bloom was lost.
