Last month, my aunt and I went to my all-time favorite bookstore in the country, Fully Booked – Bonifacio High Street! There was a huge sale wherein tons of books were more than 70% off! Of course, I grabbed this opportunity and went on an impromptu shopping trip with my aunt (this was afterI went to another mall and watched the Peanuts / Snoopy Movie – which, by the way, I loved so much that I want to watch it again and again). When we arrived, the bookstore was full of people, which was to be expected. Here’s a photo I took from one of the higher floors of the bookstore wherein you could see all the people (and books) in the sale area!
The secret here is to not give up right away. There are tons of shelves around the bookstore (even on different floors) that are under the sale — with that, I would love to share with you all my haul.
I first got The Portable James Joyce which was really cheap already (as compared to its original price)! My aunt found this for me after digging through a pile of books, in which I was so happy to find because I loved his Araby! The second book I got was a photography book – but what attracted me to it so much was the fact that it was relating to letters. The book is sort of like a collaboration amongst photographers from all around the world! They would go around and find letters even in the most basic and simple of things; for example, a letter A in the trees! I found this book at a great discount of 50% off (from Php 600+), and I was so happy to find this! The third book I got is a personal favorite of mine (a classic), Silas Marner.I read this book (as a required reading) back in high school, and I thoroughly enjoyed it so much that I wanted to grab a copy! Luckily, I found this gem hidden at one of the lowest bookshelves on the second floor of the bookstore! It’s a Collector’s Edition special and the fact that it’s also 50% off! Finally, the last book I got is called Scam!— I know, I know – it’s quite a silly book, but it really fascinated me as it was filled with the different scams (from the observations and experiences of the author) placed on people. I wanted to learn all the scams in the book so that I may avoid or warn loved ones about the idea of those kinds of spam!
And that is my book haul last month! I apologize for not updating too often, as I am quite busy with my studies (+ org work)! What’s the best book deal you’ve got? Leave your thoughts in the comments below! 🙂
