So The Book Grocer, book stores based in Melbourne, were having a little sale, so I thought I’d take a look at their collection! I purchased 5 books, all $10 each, and it was free delivery as I spent $50+. I’ve never bought from this store before, but it was a positive experience! They also sell ‘Bargain Boxes’ of 20 books of a certain genre for $100 which is great value. I haven’t bought one of these because I am picky about what books I want 😂 But it is an awesome idea and I think they have been very popular.
I am also very happy that I got these for such a good price!! Also, none of these are on my wish list 😂 Just came across them and liked the sound of them. Let’s go through what I got! 😊
