2018 Week 8: Big Bad Wolf Book Sale
February 19-25, 2018
I’ve seen a lot of posts about the Big Bad Wolf Book Sale. Nainggit ako so pumunta rin ako after my shift last Tuesday. Daming books! I arrived around 2AM so medyo konti mga tao. I went straight to the Business and Economics section. Don ako medyo maraming nabili. I roamed around for 3 hours. Kung hindi lang ako antok at hindi worried na maabutan ng traffic, I would have stayed longer as in until mid-morning pa hehe. Kaso kailangan ko rin matulog eh haha. Ayun lang, di ko nachambahan yung pagrerestock ata nila. Everything that I’ve seen from friends’ posts na sabi ko hahanapin ko rin, di ko makita. Or siguro dahil sa dami ng books, hilong talilong din talaga ako hahahaha! I also bought a few items from the home and garden section.
↑First batch. 12 books. Php 3,180.00. Not bad no? To think na most of these are business books and most are also hardbound. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is for my niece. The rest is for me.
I went for the second time last Sunday. Huling hirit. This time, I visited the Children’s section and cook book. Marami pang books don. However, I can’t think of anyone to give it to. Puro activity books na ang binigay ko sa mga pamangkin ko before. I just bought two books for my niece who likes to read. When I went to the cook book area, naku hilong talilong uli hahahahaha. I wanted them all bigla! But I had to restrain myself and just picked up a few on baking and deserts.
↑Second batch. 5 books. Php 1,460.00. Because I love desserts and because my teenager niece seem to be interested in baking. It will be a great bonding time for us. The 2 thin books at the bottom are for my other niece again. She loves to read so I’d like to encourage her more by buying books for her, which I don’t mind because eventually, mahihiram din ng future kid/s ko hehe. Yun talaga yun eh :p.
↑Shopping bag. Naaliw ako sa quote hehe.
I don’t know when I’ll be able to finish reading all these books. Sana mabasa ko sila in this lifetime hehehe.
I think I will…I hope actually hahaha, because last weekend, I was able to finish one. So nabawasan ang unread stash ko, even if the book I read was not one of those I bought from the book sale. Pinahiram din lang sa akin. I need to return it na so binasa ko sya haha.
↑Last weekend’s read.
