33 In Gmarket/ Korean learning journey (:

Gmarket Haul: Korean Books!

Nothing makes me happier than receiving a whole bunch of Korean books in the mail 😀

If you are wondering why the picture is so blurry, it’s because my hands are shaking from the excitement ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

And if you are wondering why I got the grammar book and the ewha books, they are not mine. Helping a friend buy. Only the history set and the 5-set novels are mine, although I’m tempted to hold the 속담 (proverbs) book for my own too lol.

And yes, reviews will be coming! Maybe not for the novels. It will be 100000 years later when I finally finished them.

Will be reviewing them soon 😀

By the same author of the 전우치 novels that I’ve been raving about!!!! I aim to start reading them in….. June 2013 FML

MOST EXCITED ABOUT THESE OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG. Recommended to me by a Korean friend! Will take a look at it after I’ve typed this out. And maybe do the Ewha reviews when I’m in the mood to!

HEHEHEHEHE THIS IS AWESOME. Will be blogging about them soon~~~! I promise.

*happy*

            LOL! Bought Seoul National Uni.’s Level 5 book A & B, and 속담!! I search for this on G-Market after I saw your blog, and it seems that inside 속담 has some colorful + cute art. I was thinking maybe this book could help me in my Korean learning journey since the book has a wall of text! ㅋㅋ And it’s quite cheap.. 😛

    I reckon you are one person who will understand my pain.

    Here at Sinchon, I live right next to a 2-storey 알라딘 2nd hand bookshop.

    ARGHHHH

    Hi Shanna,

    I was looking at the Ewha books and noticed that they do not have worldwide shipping (gmarket). How do you go about getting the books since they do not ship worldwide?

      hi J! mmm that’s strange. They do ship overseas. Perhaps you can look for another seller. Which level are you thinking of purchasing?
