Booksybooks. an online bookshop.

What I hope from this little venture is to make it easier for people who loves books and bargains to surf through & shop for cheap books online.
My intent is to spread these books around and reinvest their values into new readers.

The books are second-hand of course and comes with faults here and there. But I feel that gives them character. Personally, I love wondering where these books come from and who has read them before. I hope you will come to feel the same way too...

Paperbags, Oh Paperbags.

I was searching high and low, for cheap, functional paperbags. And oh boy was it a mission! My requirements for paperbags were; 1. brown 2. cheap 3. big enough for 3 or 4 paperback books 4. did i say cheap. I went to wholesale stores, Cowboy (this wondrous, anything-u-can-find-under-the-sun shop in my hometown Kuantan), Mydin, hardware shops, online, paperbag suppliers, just about everywhere!, to find a simple brown paperbag. What I did find; 1. small brown paperbags just enough to fit 3 goreng pisang 2. cheap but ugggly paperbags 3. nice but wayyy too pricey paperbags (come on, I sell pre-loved books and my margin is so tiny that I can only dream of using embossed paperbags, with double enforced bottom and paper twisted handles). Even the wondrous shop failed me.

So, after exhausting all my options, I finally stumbled upon a website selling the paperbag. Although I initially wanted it brown (I have this thing with anything brown and raw looking), I decided white is pretty too. As soon as they got in, I stamped them with BOOKSYbooks. and they're now ready to be used. I was so keen on finding paperbags because of my deep hatred towards anything plastic. Ok, that sounds a bit too heavy and sadistic. I really dislike plastic bags. That's why I tried so hard to find paper ones. And all my efforts did not go out in vain :) Now I can officially say NO to plastic bags!
