It’s the time of the year again! Books For Less, one of the biggest second hand bookshops in the Philippines is again having it’s yearly month-long warehouse sale! I did have a lot of fun last year, when my friends and I visited their warehouse. I ended up going there twice and on each occasion I brought home two big bundles of books.
Most of the books available last year includes literary fiction novels, the classics, non-fiction books like cook books, biographies and reference books, children’s books and also magazines.
Last year, all of the books that you can see at the warehouse costs P10 each but this year it’s P20. I am hoping that this year, Books For Less will have better selection of books. 🙂
The Books for Less Warehouse Sale will run from August 1-31, 2015 (Except Aug 3, 10, 17, 24), from 9AM-6PM at #643 Mercedes Avenue, Brgy. San Miguel, Pasig City (in front of La Consolacion College). Last year, the management put a tarpaulin in front of their warehouse so as people not to miss the place.
Yesterday (07/29/2015), they posted on their Facebook page a sneak peek as to how the inside of the warehouse looks. I can say that this year, the place is cleaner, bigger and there are more books than last year. Here are the pictures that they posted on their Facebook page. And to assist customer for direction on how to go to their warehouse, Books For Less posted a Location Map. They also posted directions and instructions on how to get to the place from different points in Metro Manila:
