The sale promises discounts of up to 90%, with some books going for as low as P20. More boxes of books will be opened and added to the sale in the next days.
Since it started on August 13, droves of readers have been heading to National Book Store’s Quezon Avenue branch. The crowds get so big (and some book lovers get so ruthless in their quest for new reads) that people have likened the sale to the “Hunger Games.”
But many say their finds are worth the effort and the lines, posting their haul on Twitter and Instagram.
