I have been meaning to go for the longest time! The BBW already visited the Philippines for a total of 5 times, even going all the way to Davao and Cebu. But this is my first time. ❤
It’s really good that they are fostering the habit of reading by allowing people to purchase books for a much lower price compared to established bookstores.
The Sale ran from February 14 until 24 and is open 24 hours. Imagine that! We went to the BBW Sale on its last day, Feb 24 around 2:00 pm and we finished about 4:30 pm. Also, they don’t have an entrance fee! 🙂
They have different sections such as; Business/Economics, Romance, Young Adult, Coloring Book,Activity Books, Religion, Self-Help, Crime/Thriller, Graphic Novel and Science Fiction.
I chose 11 books but we only bought 7! It’s also nice to set a specific budget because it can be a bit overwhelming! The 11 books that we chose:
- World’s Greatest Idea
- Secret Religions
- 12 years a slave
- Quench your own thirst
- Risk to Succeed
- Take the lead
- Things I wish I’d known
- The wisdom of Groundhog Day
- How we got to Now
- Likeable Business
From the books that I’ve seen, the prices are at Php 190, 230 and 290 only. What a catch! And Tip? To help you sort and filter, search for the books first. There are hundreds of reviews for each book available on the web.
The husband ended up buying Secret Religions, World’s Greatest Idea and 12 years a Slave.
I, on the other hand did not really look into YA and Fiction since I can look them up online and download them. Instead, I focused on Self Help, Business books I can keep eventually. I bought Edge, Quench your own thirst, Risk to Succeed and Take the Lead.
I’m so happy. Hope to be able to attend the succeeding BBW Sale here in Manila. Thank you hubby for taking me. ❤
