I can be such a moron sometimes. I completely forgot today’s the launch of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. But of course!
The moment we set foot into Tesco this morning,Â we were greeted byÂ a mountain of Harry Potter books beckoning to us, “Buy me at only RM69.90!”
Me: Wow, that’s expensive. (Steev gives me a surprised look!) So how much are they selling it at other bookstores?
Raine: You have to pre-order, Mom.
Me: Yeah, I know but how much is it at other places?
Steev: RM110 !!
Me: What?!!! So this is very cheap? (obvious, isn’t it?)
Confession: I only found out half an hour ago about the price war on this book. Apparently it’s all over the papers. I don’t buy or read the papers so.
MPH, Popular, Times (and Harris?) bookstores are fuming that Tesco and Carrefour are selling the book at less than RM70. Eh, why am I telling you guys? Y’all know this already.
At any rate, I’m one of the smart ones who didn’t pre-order (so I’m not a moron after all) and one of the lucky ones who snapped up a copy at RM69.90 today. Woo-hoo!
At any rate, if you ask me, RM110 isÂ tooÂ freakin’ expensive forÂ any book unless it’s bound in gold . With the savings, we’re more than covered for popcorn when we go watchÂ the Harry Potter movieÂ next week. Don’t you just lurveÂ price wars? *dancing on the ceiling*
BTW, when I left Tesco at aroundÂ 2p today, there were still lots of books left. Go try your luck if you’re interested in getting a copy for yourself.
