A book is a garden, an orchard, a storehouse, 
a party, a company by the way, 
a counsellor, a multitude of counsellors.

A house without books is like

The 3rd Stash - SOLD OUT!


Books let us into their souls 
and lay open to us the secrets of our own 
~William Hazlitt ~

This stash of books unlike the first two, make you think a little more and is more 'heavy' in that sense. Of the 3rd stash, I loved 'The Ice Cream Girls' best followed by 'The Pact' by New York Times Bestselling author Jodi Picoult. So, if you would like a read that is a little deep, but enjoyable at the same time and is not chick lit, then these will be the books for you to indulge in.

1. The Thirteenth Tale – Diane Setterfield {RM13.00} SOLD!
2. The Pact – Jodi Picoult {RM15.00}  SOLD!
3. The Third Secret – Steve Berry {RM13.00}  SOLD!
4. The Inheritance of Loss – Kiran Desai {RM13.00}  SOLD!
5. The Memory Keeper’s Daughter – Kim Edwards {RM13.00}  SOLD!
6. The Ice Cream Girls – Dorothy Koomson {RM22.00}  SOLD!

At present, I only do cash & carry. The pickup areas are as follows: Equatorial Hotel, Kuala Lumpur, KLCC, The Curve, 1Utama, Tropicana City Mall. All books are dog-earred free and are in good condition!

The 2nd Stash


The worth of a book is to be measured 
by what you can carry away from it.  
~ James Bryce ~

These selection of books is possibly my favourite ~ two of the books in this stash, 'One Day' and 'Something Borrowed' have been made into movies just recently. 'One Day' resonates with me and is possibly one of the better books I have read. The rest of the books make awesome chick lit reads, perfect for a read on the airplane or on the beach or just curled up in bed on a Saturday morning!

1. One Day – David Nicholls {RM27.00} SOLD!
2. The Self-Preservation Society – Kate Harrison {RM15.00}  SOLD!

The Black Magician Trilogy


The gift of fantasy has meant more to me 
than my talent for absorbing positive knowledge
~ Albert Einstein ~


A must read for all fantasy book fans. 
I reckon sooner or later, it will be made into a movie!

My test of a good novel 
is dreading to begin the last chapter

Reading has already been my favourite past time. Even as a young girl, I would always have a book with me wherever I went. As mentioned in my first post, I am moving and am not able to bring all my books with me. Hence why I have decided to sell them to individuals who like myself, enjoy a good read. So enjoy browsing the KKB and do let me know if you have any queries about the books! Enjoy.

The Knick Knack Box

After realizing that I had just too much stuff (new and pre-loved) which could never fit into my new home, I decided to start The Knick Knack Box - a blog stop to browse and shop. So what is a Knick Knack really? There are many definitions of it,  though I like Merriam-Webster's definition best...

knick·knack

 noun \ˈnik-ˌnak\

Definition of KNICKKNACK

: a small trivial article usually intended for ornament

Variants of KNICKKNACK

knick·knack also nick·nack
At thesaurus.com, I typed in Knick Knack and got these fab descriptions:

Main Entry:gewgaw
Part of Speech:noun
Definition:novelty
Synonyms:bagatelle, bauble, bibelot, conversation piece,curio, 
curiosity, gimcrack, gimmick, item, knick-knack, 
knickknack, memento, objet d'art, oddity,souvenir, 
toytrifle, trinketwhatnot

So, moving along, the gew gaw's, trinkets, whatnots, object d'art a.k.a Knick Knacks found in The Knick Knack Box (or KKB for short) is divided into three broad categories, namely the "Gloriously New", the "Pre-Loved and Will be Missed" and the "Crafted With Love".

I do hope you will enjoy browsing through my little blog stop/shop. Do stay for awhile, enjoy the views, drop by every other day or just donate to my "Project Love Nest" and "Project Happily Ever After" fund {More on this later!}. 

Do mail me at the_knickknack_box@yahoo.com if you have any queries or if you just want to chat. Have an awesome possum day *smiles*
