Things you might have missed:
1. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is out in the market on 21st July 2007.
2. Carrefour and Tesco Malaysia sold it at RM69.90, despite the retail price of RM109.90
3. MPH, Times, Popular and Harris Bookstores decided to boycott selling the book because of Carrefour and Tesco's “loss leaders” (items sold at a loss in order to attract customers)tactics, although they are now selling the book at discount prices.
4. I'm a Harry Potter fan.
5. The bookshop at my college is selling the book for RM75.
6. You guess.

If you're smart enough, u should have guessed it correctly. Now I own a copy of Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows.

RM75. although it's more expensive than the RM69.90, i still think i have the best deal in Malaysia. Firstly, all the books from Carrefour and Tesco are sold out. If i buy now, i can only get the RM109.90 with a 20% discount, which means the cheapest now on store would be RM87.92.

Secondly, the bus fare to go down to KL would have cost me more than the extra RM5 the bookstore charged. And considering the RM75, it's almost the same price if i buy it at London, means i dun have to pay for the sending costs and stuff.

The only time u can see a lot of bookworm Malaysians is when a new Harry Potter book is released.

Going to read now.....
