The first order this year, of course, was the one where I was optimizing my giftcard. Since the order will be shipped altogether and two of the three books are not to be released until May 31, I’m itching for some reading in the interim. This time, I aimed to get as much as I can while reaching the free shipping amount ($39) and not much overshooting the second points reward level of Air Miles ($40).
I ordered –
The Round-Heeled Woman, a mature woman’s s*xcapades, or so it seems;
Lonely Planet Cantonese Phrasebook, indispensible; and
The Jade Peony, more Asian-Canadian lit. by local talent Wayson Choy.
