It’s been a busy couple of weeks, and I hardly had time to sit down to blog over the weekend… or the past few days, as things are going crazy outside of my blogging life. But in the meantime, here’s a photo from our weekend raid at the Scholastic warehouse sale!

(Sorry, no warehouse photos, we just went ga-ga at the sight of the books… typical!!! Haha, when you’re with a pack of bargain book hunters, you have to move fast or miss out on the spoils! )


The figures:

1 Sunday morning
1  warehouse sale
4 book addicts
2 hours of browsing
over 70 books
3 bags nearly splitting at the seams (at P795 each)

Totally exhausting, but so much worth it!

My loot:

Twelve books, coming down to a grand total of P360 (around US $7),  petering out to P30 ($0.70) each. And four of them on my wishlist too!


Am in the middle of composing a long-overdue review series, will have it up soon, I promise! :)

  1. I’m glad too, I hadn’t had the heart to buy books for the longest time! Couldn’t resist the lure of these great books!

    Btw, Gregor the Overlander is the first book of Suzanne Collins’ first series, the Underland Chronicles! :) I have two of the five books now (1 and 3) so now I only have 3 more to hunt down!

  2. nabili ko din un gregor the overlander ko on sale pero sa national sa may cubao. dami din murang books dun. pero mukhang mas mura yun nakuha mo.

    meron ka din city of ember. isa sa mga favorite book series ko un.

  3. @Stephanie – the Scholastic warehouse sale has become a habit with my book club friends

    @Ray-ann- I got book 3 at National Glorietta for P50… Heard a lot of raves about City of Ember, looking forward to reading it too.

  5. ey! You got Night by Elie Wiesel…it’s a great book…I read it through a friend. I’m soooo green with envy fo your books.:-)
    Hope to have a schedule of warehouse sales their in Pinas. Do they have a website wherein I could order books?

    1. I don’t have a current schedule of warehouse sales, most have gone on sale before the holidays. The warehouses don’t sell directly unless they’re open on sale, usually the stock gets farmed out to their various branches.
