This week, until August 21st, Bangkok’s Impact Arena is hosting an enormous book sale. There are over three million English books, mostly being sold for around 150tbh (only 3gbp!), available and, luckily for me, it’s right by my work.
It was very easy to find the Impact Arena because it’s very well-known and my taxi driver knew exactly where to go. However, it wasn’t so easy to find the sale once I arrived. I met a couple of Thai ladies also looking for the sale and together we found the right hall but it was absolutely empty. If you’re in Bangkok and thinking of going, here’s some advice: go through the car park.
I’m not sure how long I was there for but I walked around and around that arena for a long time, just enjoying looking at all the books. As I’m leaving the country in five weeks, it didn’t make sense to buy a lot of new books, so I had to limit myself. I bought three books and a travel journal.
Here’s what I bought:
So that’s Plague in the Mirrors by Deborah Noyes, Hallowed by Tonya Hurley and, the one I’m most excited for, Marina by Carlos Ruiz Zafon.
I’m excited to delve into these and I’ll have to get started soon so they’re finished before my trip next month!
Happy reading 🙂
