The words BOOK and SALE in the same sentence send us into fits of palpitations and tween-ish giggles. We were there like the proverbial “Fred Bear”, car boots empty, wallets full and ready to wade through mountains of books at Exclusive Books’ Warehouse Sale. A drive that took us exactly halfway between each other and prices that would make bargain hoppers hop on one foot with a gleeful squeal and clap.
|Why we held hands so we would not lose each other|
We ventured in ready to grab collars, snatch books and fight for titles that were truly ours! What we didn’t bank on was that:
- Kelly would be late and Tarryn would be early
- That another 4000 other book lovers wanted cheap books and a day out.
Kelly arrived to find Tarryn's arm filled to the brim and no air-conditioning present in the vast space of the warehouse. R50 per kilo! Madness! Tarryn had a wild look about her, charging through the masses and snatching "gems" from the metal shelves. "I want it to be quiet, there are books behind books" she gasped, in a crazy 'fight for survival' kind of way. Kelly on the other hand, took a step back as it to charge the bullfighter with the red cape.
|If you tilt your head to the side and squint, you can just make out that Tarryn is behind those packets|
|Tarryn's boot still looks empty|
|Kelly lies! It's Tarryn's bag|
|One packet Kelly? Holding back this year?|
Total spending for Tarryn: R280-00
