(Inside Manila) If the myriad of book sales currently happening around the metro are any indication, July is another month for bibliophiles. The biggest local bookstores are offering considerable discounts and it’d be a shame to forego the chance to haul what could be our next favorite read. Mark your calendars and call dibs on those great reads at great prices.

Books For Less                                

Due to the popularity of its month-long sale last June, Books For Less is having another sale where you can score books for as low as P50. This promo is part of SM City North EDSA’s “The Great Northern Sale” on July 13 to 15, 10 a.m. to 12 a.m., and is exclusive to its store at 4th level, The Block.

Big Bad Wolf

Y’all Cebuanos asked for it, the Big Bad Wolf heard you. For 10 days, score up to 60 to 80% discounts from over a million books—that’s like a fiesta of books! And like what the big bad wolf said at its book fair of the same name in February, cheap books aren’t necessarily hand-me-downs and of poor quality. Here, you’re sure to find more than one title that’ll tickle your fancy. The air will be an overwhelming welcome once you reach the book fair, and you best come prepared.

The Big Bad Wolf Book Sale is happening from July 13 (9 a.m.) to 23 (11:59 p.m.) at the IEC Convention Center in Cebu City. It will be open 24 hours to give your bookworm heart a lot of opportunities to shop. What’s more, admission is free!
