Bargains At Borders

I found some interesting books at bargain prices when I was at Borders the other day that may interest the current sea scouts and maybe old salts as well.

The Ultimate Encyclopedia of Knots & Ropework

The Ultimate Encyclopedia of Knots & Ropework
by Geoffrey Budworth

I first saw this book in Singapore and again in Kuala Lumpur. They weren't exactly cheap then but the Borders outlet at Queensbay Mall is now offering it at a very special price (can't really recall how much but probably below RM30?) and also part of the "3 for 2" offer. Not sure if it's a mistake or not but that's pretty cheap for a hard cover book which retails for USD39. The book is very informative with pictures, descriptions, history, uses and of course how to tie each knot.

Fishing: Everything You Need to Catch the Big One

Fishing: Everything You Need to Catch the Big One
by Ronnie Garrison

This book is for fishing enthusiasts or those who are learning how to fish. The book does not have lots of pictures but contains a lot of information provided by the author who's an authority in fishing and other outdoor activities. The book is also very affordable at less than RM30.

Sorry, I can't remember exactly how much the books cost but I know they are very affordable for such books. So those interested may want to drop by at Borders these few days.
