Testimoni @allucanpick END

Setelah sekian hari menghilang, aku langsung menghubungi owner @thisisnotabookstore. Katanya sista itu siap ngebantuin aku buat ngegeberin admin @allucanpick. Akhirnya sekitar 1-2 hari, admin allucanpick  menghubungi aku. Katanya bukunya memang tidak sampai di rumahnya, jadi admin itu akan merefund uangku. The end.

Yah, kesimpulannya, memang banyak hal-hal di luar dugaan kalau membeli barang online, apalagi yang PO. Untungnya olshop yang ini mau bertanggung jawab. Banyak kok, kejadian orang lain yang serupa denganku, tapi uang maupun orderan mereka tidak ada yang sampai. Demikianlah

About This Book Loves You

Do you know This Book Loves you by Pewdiepie?

Well, I don’t know if I’m critique or mocking his book. I posted a comment in youtube that this book is the most expensive toilet paper, and should stay in the internet and can be downloaded for free. Than being printed with a very very expensive price. And then, there are 2 persons that get butthurt because of my comments. They say:

Respect others’ works

Respect others’ works. Don’t talk carelessly

Welp, I don’t talk carlessly. I’ve read more than 100 books, I know which one is a good book and which one isn’t. Have you ever read experience book by @bungamega or #88 love life? Well they both printed in the same quality, and it’s HARDCOVER, and has ‘contents’ too. Their contents can motivated my life, and it’s for sale in every bookstore. The price is about 1/6 – 1/3 of This Book Loves You.

I’ve read a few pages from youtube and goodreads. So far, the book is like:

don’t be something that ____. X is awesome. So be X

I’m not a fan of Pewdiepie, maybe this books is dedicated to his fans. Maybe only them that understand this kind of content and humor.

So, as the book is available in every country in the world, it’s everyone rights to criticize it. Not just this book, but every works. People criticize it in various ways. Don’t get butthurt easily, introspective yourself.

Do you violate copyright law? How about the movies and mp3 songs in your phone? Do you download it legally? Do you still photocopying your text books?

Testi belanja buku pre order di @allucanpick (instagram)

Long time no see,eh?

Kalau pernah baca posting postingan aku sebelumnya, kalian tau kan kalau aku sedang menjalani masa book ban. Yaitu dimana aku ga boleh belanja buku (apalagi online) selama periode tertentu.

Nah kalau kasus ini, aku udah belanja buku sebelum masa bookban. Aku belanja di instagram.com/allucanpick , waktu dulu aku pernah menang giveaway + beli buku di mitra olshopnya, yaitu @thisisnotabookstore, karena kebanyakan barang thisisnotabookstore sudah ready, jadi aku belanja di allucanpick, kata owner thisisnotabookstore katanya sama aja sih. Dan memang barang2 allucanpick mostly PO, aku udah liat testinya dan langsung capcus aja transfer. Pemesanannya sekitar pertengahan atau akhir maret lah (sekarang tanggal 20 mei).

Books Shopping Cycle

So, I’ve been told by someone to respect their creation. And YES indeed, I already did it. If the book are good enough to be displayed in my bookshelf, I will not hesitate to buy the  legal ones. Most of the books in my e-shelf are already displayed in my wood-shelf (a.k.a I already bought it).

Reading the preview in the amazon isn’t enough.

A trip to Reading Lights Bandung

Ok, maybe you’ve seen my previous post about book ban. Yeah I’m doing a book ban now. Yesterday was an ascension day and today is isra miraj day. Since this is a golden week,  we can’t spend it just by staying at home.

Speaking of golden week, the first day of it, I’m spending the time in Reading Lights Bandung! I know this bookstore from a public lecture when it was world books day. It’s a library-bookstore-cafe. There is such a little thing about library cafe in Indonesia, especially in Bandung. As a business appreciator, I’m gonna take a hit.

Reading Lights is located in Jalan Siliwangi Bandung no. 16, It’s not far from bbs Cikapundung, about 100 m away. If you want to go there, you can take a damri from buah batu and stop in Jalan Dipatiukur, thus take a cicaheum and ciroyom angkot. Angkot is a small car public transportation that has specific colors and different tracks in each colors.

Since Reading Lights is a library based, the books are second condition, all in foreign language (majority english, few are dutch or german) and only sells it at the very low low low price, it’s about Rp 5000 – 300.000, depends on the author, ratings and how old the book is. Me and my sister bought 4 books (1 HC) for only 100.000, isn’t that amazing?

Welcome to your new home!

It’s my first time going to RL, the visitors are not many, I arrived at 12.05 in the mid day, and we are the FIRST customer. It was cloudy outside, when we entered the store I admit it was a little bit spooky.

The collections are not as many as you see from their twitter or facebook, maybe most of the books were being bought by the previous customers. You are able to book a book for 10 days and pay it later. Which is I think impossible because the books are very cheap tho. Or  if you are looking for a book and it’s unavailable, you can wait in the waiting list. OR if you don’t have any money, you can only read books WITHOUT order anything!

RL doesn’t provide heavy meal like rice, or burger. But they provides some ‘heavy’ snack such as sandwich, french fries, cream soup, pancake, spaghetti; and regular beverages such as coffee, tea, and soft drinks. The price of beverages are about Rp 5.000 – 20.000 and the price of food is about Rp 18.000 – 35.000.

It also provide a praying room, an unisex toilet, smoking area, and WIFI. Praying room and toilet are on the second floor, you must take the  left stairs, the right stairs led you to the office which is forbidden. If you buy books at least Rp 100.000, you can get a member card! The benefits of being a member are:

  1. You can get 10% discount on beverage
  2. Collect the stamps and you’ll get a discount!
  3. You can exchange books!
  4. You can sell books here (I thinks it’s valid to all visitors)

I took some photos of RL, just take a look!

NB: the manager you see as the cashier is Teh Puti, she’s alumnus from Unpad who took destintry major

Book Addiction

Do you like books? Do you collect books? Well, we have the same hobby! I like books, I love hearing people’s opinion through books, I like getting secondary experience, etc. etc. etc,

But, just this morning, I realized I can’t control myself from buying books. I count it, and it’s like I bought a book maybe once until twice a week, and the book I bought is rarely cheap though.

I know, hobby is something that we love, we never get bored of doing it. But too much hobby is dangerous, I mean, We spent our life by doing hobby, prioritizing it, if I’m not doing it, I get anxious, nervous and loss my focus.  Continue reading “Book Addiction”
