Books from the Philippines are slightly expensive. I think I spent about p1400 in just two hardbound books in one week. But I really wanted a copy of Etiquette and Espionage in HB and I've looked in 8 bookstores and 4 cities for a hardbound copy of Anna and the French Kiss. Heck, finding even one copy was hard enough!
So when I saw the books, I instantly bought them without second thoughts.
But still, it is a pretty expensive hobby! What about you guys, what's the most you've spent for books in a week?
