burning books

I finally got a chance to visit Burning Books. I found out about it last year but never got the chance to actually visit the shop.

The small book shop is run by a Japanese lady by the name of Noriko and it's located in Footscray and it sells second hand books and some new books. Inside, it is very neat and tidy and the atmosphere is very welcoming.

P.S Murasaki, Rihito (the guy) is not cyborg. He is just a S-Rank butler ;)

I placed an order of the nine volumes of Mei-chan no Shitsuji available and it cost me $35. It is actually a pretty good deal since the books are imported and are in Japanese. Well it is definitely cheaper than going to Borders to buy manga. Since the series is not finished yet, Noriko-san said she will contact me if there are more volumes available, which is very nice of her.

Recently, Noriko has been stocking manga translated in English. Prices are definitely cheaper than buying from Borders. Prices start at $11.95.

Volumes 1-9 of Mei-chan no Shitsuji; This is going to keep me busy for a while. Looks like I don't need to buy LaLa for a while.

Hope to visit more often in the future.
