#NBSCutPrice2016: The National Bookstore Cut Price Book Sale 2016
I had almost given up on National Bookstore’s Cut Price Book Sale ever happening this year. The annual book sale traditionally coincided with the Manila International Book Fair, and I was counting on scoring some scorching deals like I had in the past. But when the 2016 MBIF came and went with hardly a hint of National Bookstore matching the book fair with its own much-anticipated booksale, I thought the country’s largest bookstore chain was letting go of a cherished bookselling tradition. Until I saw a blazing announcement for the 2016 National Bookstore Cut-Price Book Sale on my Facebook timeline…
