Fantastic Cheaper Book Finds!
So as I’ve said, I would make it my life goal to own at least a thousand books. And today was a great day to start hoarding. I met two awesome new friends (twins), Brien and Roven, from Bookwars. They are two of the four founders of this online bookshop and they also came from my university. After purchasing 2 books from them, they asked me if I wanted to join them as admin for the said bookshop. I told them that I’d be honored so they said that they would have to consult with the other two first. (I hope they let me join, I love book hunting)
Anyways, Brien invited me to go with him to the secret book haven, where they buy original books for more than half the price. I won’t be telling you where, since it might affect their business. Of course, I couldn’t pass up that chance so I agreed to go. The said place was really a piece of euphoric beauty. Though the place was a bit cramped, the books there was awesome. We spent almost an hour looking for good books and here are what I got (with the price difference):

The Ultimate Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy (A Compilation of the 5 Volumes) by Douglas Adams 

Original Price: Php945 ($18.36)
Bought it at: Php250 ($6.50)

A Million Suns by Beth Revis

Original Price: Php399 ($9.99)
Bought it at: Php200 ($5)

Things Change by Patrick Jones

Original Price: Php395 ($7.95)
Bought it at: Php100 ($2.50)

Skin & Other Stories by Roald Dahl

Original Price: Php300 ($5.99)
Bought it at: Php100 ($2.50)

A Wrinkle In Time by Madeleine L’engle

Original Price: Php330 ($6.50)
Bought it at: Php50 ($1.50)
And trust me, the books are in very good condition. They are still inside the original plastic packaging. Oh, I am just so happy to meet the awesome guys who showed me their “secret” happy place.
