National Bookstore Warehouse Sale 2015

National Bookstore, a household bookstore name in the Philippines, is currently having their annual #NBSGreatWarehouseSale. I visited yesterday and I was able to buy 11 books for only ₱1,025.

I arrived at the warehouse at 12 noon and a lot of books were already gone by then. But at the same time, it was a good thing because there were fewer people by then.

My target were reference, educational, and source books. Of the 5 that I saw, I bought 3 (listed below). The rest, as not to waste my time and effort, were fiction books, 8 in total, some I’ve already read, while a few I don’t normally buy.

But there’s one thing that I always dread, touching the last copy of a book at the same time with another shopper. In this case, it was The Sorceress book 3 of The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel series. The competition? A chino mestiza so I gave it up.
