There are (generally) two methods to obtaining books which are all tried and tested solutions by my friends and I as well as our parents.
First: the expensive method. Grab your Credit Card and head towards Kinokuniya. Go straight to the 'Gifted Readers' section and you'll find at least a couple of books there. If you're contented, great. If not, head towards the counter and give them your list so that the workers can help you locate the books. Most probably you'll find another couple. From one trip alone you should manage at least ten. This is entirely sufficient to cover an entire year's worth of book reviews and school reading. For all other literary exposure, head towards the library for free browsing.
Second: go online to amazon or ebay, your credit card in tow (again). Then search up the books and purchase the cheapest copies or copies with the largest font if you'd like. Checkout and ship it over once to reduce shipping charges. Do remember to check the credibility rating of the seller, or buy the version supplied directly by Amazon, though that would be a few bucks more. Still, cheaper than Kinokuniya.
There are others that recommend the library, but I would not choose to do that. Although borrowing is free and you can reserve the books for a fee and collect from the counter, the books can only be borrowed for a period of 3 weeks (or 6 weeks if you renew). This is not sufficient to cover the whole school year or months of it, which would be preferred since there are multiple assignments you need to take care of.
Sorry, I don't know much about font size as that hasn't been a problem with me.
Hope this helps
Thanks "a child". I was trying my luck here to see if anyone like to sell theirs. So it's easier for the new GEPper's mum.
