The other day I wrote a post about planning to have a baby at the end of this year and one friend of mine suggested some books to me. She gave birth to a lovely baby girl last year and she said that she had found the books useful. THANK YOU for the book recommendations, Mey!!!
Anyway, I tried looking for the books online. Turned out that some online Finnish bookstores sold them, but they were quite expensive. So I tried finding them in ebay. I don't care whether they're used books just as long as they're cheap hi hi hi hi...After all, with the dollar currency being much lower than Euro currency, I figured that even though I had to pay much for the shipping cost if I bought books from the USA, the total cost would still be cheaper than buying those books in new conditions from Finnish bookstores.
And ta-daaaa...I did find three of the four books my friend recommended and I had bid on them. I won two of the bids and I'm waiting to win one more bid. I know that reading pregnancy/birth/child care books doesn't mean that I'm going to remember all of them when the time comes, but I love being ready. And I figured, why not? After all, those people who wrote the books must be experts, right?
Oh well...honestly speaking, I had to curb myself when I browsed through ebay. It was true what they said there: Be careful 'coz e-baying can be addictive HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA...
If everything works out well and I win the last bid, I'll get 3 books and I only need to pay around €28 (including shipping and handling). If I had bought the books in Finland, I had to pay at least €13-17 PER BOOK (excluding shipping). Imagine that!!!
I can't wait to receive the first two books whose bids I won in the mail. YIIIPPPIIIIIEEEEEEEEE!!!
Oh, and the other day I made this silly JibJab movie starring Arttu, his two brothers, and his second brother's girlfriend HI HI HI HI HI...Enjoy it!!!
