The Japanese word tsundoku means to buy so many books and letting them pile up somewhere without reading them. It’s a problem I share with other readers, who feel like there’s not enough time to read all the good books coming out from authors, publishers, and bookstores. But I consider it a nice problem to have because it makes me happy seeing them in my room and knowing I’ll get to them soon.
This weekend, I’ll be adding more books to my collection as National Book Store is holding its first ever Book Binge Bazaar, a three-day sale where imported books will be available for P75, P175, and P275!
It’s a great way to buy the books you’ve been meaning to buy because they won’t be available again at such prices. It’s also a way to stock up on novels you’ll be reading for the rest of the year. And the best part, admission is free so anyone can pop in and binge buy everything. Now, this is something that I won’t be regretting.
National Book Store’s Book Binge Bazaar will be held from February 9 to 11, 2018 at Megatrade Hall 3 on the 5th floor of Mega B in SM Megamall. The bazaar will be from 10AM to 10PM.
I’ll be having a stronger case of tsundoku this year and I’m looking forward to seeing my pile grow higher (and of course getting to them eventually)!
