Dari moderator jadi penjual buku May 14, 2007Posted by elizabethwong in Event, Malaysia, Politics.
I’ve not had time to blog on yesterday’s forum as the Suaram-ites have taken up the new role of ‘agents’ for the distributor.
We are overwhelmed by the response!
We’d expected between 80-100 people to turn up but 200 came (thus – our sincerest apologies for the modest portions of tea/cakes)!
Aiyo! Even former deputy director of Special Branch, who was in the police force back in 1969, sat through the whole launching and extended forum.
We’d expected to sell about 100 copies, but ended up selling 300!
We’ve sold out the ones in the Suaram office this afternoon and are restocking this afternoon.
And we’re going into our second reprint mid this week!
Here’s how one can get a copy this week, before the books hit the bookshops. It is best to book in advance.
1. Direct from Gerakbudaya (distributor). Tel: 03-7957 8342. Add: 11, Lorong 11/4E, Petaling Jaya. It’s near University Hospital and Grand City restaurant.
2. Direct from Suaram (publisher). Tel: 03-7784 3525. Add: 433A (first floor), Jalan 5/46, Gasing Indah, Petaling Jaya. It’s opposite the Petronas petrol station.
3. Via Internet at Kinibooks.com
and Gerakbudaya.com. However, I heard Streamyx is down in the office, so they haven’t been able to upload onto the websites. AAARRGGHHHH….
(Updated 14 May: I got fed up waiting so I got hold of their login info and uploaded it myself. So it’s now available on Kinibooks!)
4. It should also be available sometime next week in all ‘fine’ bookshops near you.
Please call to book your books before you turn up at (1) and (2).
