Bought 'Fantasteen' (Local Fantasy Books)... Cheap πŸ’ΈπŸ’Έ . Do you Like Fantasy Books?



My books order package arrived a few days ago (more than a week ago). There were 7 books. The seven books are "Fantasteen" books, from Indonesia (my country). "Fantasteen" is fantasy novels and comics, the target is teenagers. Do you like fantasy books (novels/comics)?

I bought the books through an online shopping application called Shopee. 4 of the 7 books are novels, the price was IDR 8,900 each. While the other 3 are comics, the price was IDR 7,900 each. They were cheap weren't they? Indeed, most of the books were not sealed.
