Got your eye on a local book you’ve been meaning to get your hands on? Looking for the perfect page-turner to accompany you on all your free time while self-isolating? Waiting for the right motivation to get back into reading? Well, you’re in luck! The Book Development Association of the Philippines announced the second run of Aklatan, an online book sale featuring titles from several local publishers.
This all-Filipino fair will be held from September 25 to September 27, 2020, on Lazada. They are partnering with tons of well-loved book publishers, such as Komiket Inc., Anvil Publishing, Adarna House, and University of the Philippines Press just to name a few. Books will be sold at discounts ranging from 20% to 70%, so you’ll definitely want to check it out.
Aklatan’s first run, in which they sold discounted titles through Shopee, was just last August. It was a successful online book fair and hundreds of bookworms were happy with the Filipino books they scored at lowered prices. So, if you missed that run or didn’t find all the titles you were hoping to purchase back then, this is your chance!
From riveting novels to enlightening nonfiction works, there are so many Filipino must-reads out there to be enjoyed. So, whether you’re looking to find your next favorite book or itching to get your own copy of a title you’ve read and fallen in love with before, mark your calendar! Aklatan is the ideal opportunity for you to not only get a great deal but to also celebrate and support Filipino literature.
