I Bought 28 Books for Less Than P2,000 at the NBS Book Binge Bazaar

I am so officially back!

I owe you a post or two (or three) about my absence and now my come-back, but first, let’s talk about something awesome. My book loot from the National Book Store Book Binge Bazaar!

I hoard books, so naturally, I eagerly awaited for the Book Binge Bazaar after I first heard of it on Facebook. Even though there’s a growing pile of unread books on my shelf! Because why not, books don’t have an expiration date heehee.

Imagine how thrilled I was to receive an email from NBS, inviting me to a special preview of the bazaar. Because of my excitement, I made sure to come as early as I can (8:30 am call time); I even think I was one of the first bloggers/ media people inside the venue. I literally said “wow” when I ente red the function hall. So many books! I was so blown away by the selection that I had trouble — only at first — figuring out where to start.

It feels good to be back <3

Because it’s almost Christmas, I set my mind on prioritizing buying gifts for inaanaks and Yuri’s friends. I made a beeline toward the kids’ section where — surprise, surprise! — almost everything was priced at P75!

Christmas came early for me, too. Thank you so much, National Book Store!

I spent the entire time browsing every single section, savoring the peace and quiet before the mall officially opens. I want to show you every single book that you can find there, but that’s impossible, so here are some pictures of some of the books you can see at the Book Binge Bazaar.

There’s no shortage of great reads and bestselling authors, I promise!

Yuri perused the books right after getting out of school.

Of course, I just had to come back on the 2nd day, which falls on Yuri’s last day of periodic exams, too. I let him choose two more books and I bought more books for the kids I had forgotten about the day before. If it was quiet and peaceful during the media preview, it was a lot more swamped during regular mall hours. Nevertheless, I still scored good books!

A lot of shoppers were sitting on the floor, sifting through book piles, so we did the same 😀

I think I scored some great finds (thank you, NBS!) and was able to buy gifts for almost all the kids in my list. Here are the 28 books I bought for less than P2,000!

The National Book Store Book Binge Bazaar is only until this Sunday, October 28th! I would be catching the last two days of the bazaar if I were you. Do your Christmas shopping there and do your inaanaks and your wallets a favor! See you there! <3

    I always love National Bookstore. When I was still a student, I often make tambay sa National book Store and would bring half a dozen books. I would read them all with gusto and return again to buy another batch. Looks like you had a great experience at National BOOK store.

    That would have been so awesome to get to attend that! I love books and have been reading since I could see! My kids also have a love for it. I had to get rid of alot of books though because of lack of space. I have a Kobo now to read from. Not the same! That’s why I don’t buy too many books lately. I usually invest in sets and ones I’ve already read so that they can become key pieces in our collection.
