Big Bad Wolf Book Haul

I'm not sure whether I should start my intro with a defensive speech as to why I got 39 new books (not including the children's book I got for Rhett) in less than two months or should I just accept my fate that I always get defeated in a battle against impulsive book buying.
Supportive. As always ♥
Here’s the thing, when you are in front of a million new books priced at 50-90% off, there's no way you could ever resist that. Not me. And it's not all the time you can get big book sales like this, that's why you have take advantage of it.  Meaning, you can’t just go barging in a book sale and NOT buy a book… because that’s just stupid. And besides, I don't really have anything to spend my money on.

And yes, I can come up with fifty more excuses to convince the world and myself why it's okay to be impulsive and splurge on books. But before I do that, I’d like to share with you what I got from the Big Bad Wolf book sale:

22 new books
2 empty pockets
1 stoked heart

I wouldn't go full detail about the frenzy that happened during the VIP day or how I felt bummed for not finding a single book on my must-have list and still ended up home with these:

Oh Brandon Sanderson and Haruki Murakami, why do you have to be so elusive?
And I'm not going to talk about how much I have spent here because it will only break my heart. But here are a few facts to make me feel less guilty about my haul:

✔ I got one book (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child) as a gift from Big Bad Wolf during the presscon.
✔ I won one gift certificate (worth Php700) from Big Bad Wolf contest and was able to take home 3 more books.
✔ Unlike others, my cart wasn't even half full. So I guess, 22 new books that won't be touched in at least 6 months (if you have only seen my to-be-read pile) isn't that bad, is it?
