In a bid to be more frugal, I have decided to only purchase things for myself if there is a valid justification for it.
Yesterday, after months of deliberating, I finally got the exclusive collector's edition of Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell!
This purchase is justified because:
- It is the first anniversary of Rainbow replying to my tweet.
- It is my reward for finishing my story for Strange Lit.
- The past week had been terrible and I deserve a pretty little thing for enduring those traffic jams and rains.
|Look at that pretty little thing|
- I have a Fully Booked Discount Card that slashes 5% off if you use a credit card or 10% off if you pay using cash. For this one though, I only got a 5% discount because the SA said the book is already marked down.
|I only paid P721 for this beauty|
- Fangirl is my favorite among all the books that Rainbow has written so far, and I promised myself I'll get a tangible copy after I read [and loved!] it on my Kindle! Great blurbs, too!
- Hardcover books usually have plain covers only because everything is on the dust jacket already, but Fangirl's cover looks pretty spiffy with its metallic doodle and all!
(The other two fan arts in the book have been purposefully withheld, hee.)
- I'm excited to read Rainbow's special Q and A.
And those are the reasons why I deserved this book purchase!
Who am I kidding. Justified or not, I was bound to get this edition the moment I saw it. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
