Event: Grand Book Sale Batch (2015)

Hello, sorry, I was unable to post this yesterday but here it is; the books I bought from this year’s grand book sale!

For those of you who don’t know; the grand book sale happens every year in Sweden in late February and, unlike other book sales, this one happens in every store that sells books. Including grocery stores with a very limited supply of books. Every. Single. Store. And no one is allowed to start the sale until a certain set date – although nowadays you can also pre-order books from online stores (but you won’t get them until the sale’s start date at the earliest). Some stores chose books from their stock that they put on sale and those are usually not the newest ones – or maybe they put the newer books on sale for a couple of days only while the rest are on sale for weeks – while other, smaller stores might organize events like “2 for 3 on everything but only for these three days”. As long as they do not start the sale before the set date they are fine.

As I’m not someone known for spending money on a lot of things I have come to allow myself a treat during this time of the year and buy as many books as I can find. This year the final count ended up being 23 + 2 books that weren’t on sale but I had to buy them anyway. You can find them all below – just click the link!
