(SPOT.ph) There's only one thing better than hoarding books: buying them at a discount. This sweet deal is made only better at the Manila International Book Fair, where you know everybody is out on the hunt. The annual fest is happening from September 11 to 15 at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City, and because "free" is also our favorite word, here's a roundup of free entry passes! Plus, we also spotted a few cool discounts.
Entry tickets for the 40th edition is at P50 for regular rate and P40 for students. It's a bit more expensive than the 2018 run (which was priced at P35), so we're sure every peso saved could go to a new book! All you have to do is download the free passes shared by the exhibitors, print them out, and bring them with you to the convention center. We 've got National Book Store, Visprint, Inc., Anvil Publishing, CSM Publishing, and Saint Matthew's Publishing to thank for these free passes.
Once you're in the convention center, check out some cool deals: Visprint, Inc. is selling books up to 50% off; National Book Store is selling selected titles at discounted prices; Summit Books, Pop Fiction, and Indie Pop are selling 2019 titles with a 10% discount; and Rex Bookstore has special rates on law books. Pro tip: Make sure to bring an extra bag for your loot. And don't forget water!
