KARINA’S TIPID BOOK HAUL: NBS Super Summer Sale

PicsArt_04-17-08.01.37.png

Just this March and April, Philippines was shOoKt by National Book Store’s BIG SALES. And by “BIG SALES” I mean, sales up to 80% OFF ON ALL IMPORTED BOOKS and SALE ON ALL OF THEIR BRANCHES. It started from their Cubao Book Blowout, then it boomed to a nation-wide sale on their branches.

And of course, ya girl made sure to grab this opportunity to finally get her most anticipated reads *since forever* and discover new titles at the same time. (Can you imagine how beyond the moon I feel now that I FINALLY have my most anticipated reads? Ahh, I love you National Book Store, you should know that)

This haul is different than my previous ones *which are all so far in the past* because I am here not just to share the books that I bought but also to share and count with you all how much money did I spend and na-tipid in this year’s NBS Super Summer Sale.

Tipid is a Tagalog word for save. I just want to include Filipino touch, hence the “Karina’s Tipid Book Haul”

Also, before we proceed, I just want y’all to know that ya girl was feeling so lazy I didn’t even bother to give some efforts in taking photos. So please, just let it slide.

So without further ado, here is my book haul (and let’s begin computing):
