Here’s a confession: My bookmark probably thinks I’m dead. I still haven’t completely gotten back to reading. Recently, I honestly almost forgot that it’s originally one of my hobbies—until I saw another announcement from Aklatan.
If you missed the first all-Filipino book fair last month (or are down for round two), online book fest Aklatan is back, back, back to cure our longing for book deliveries. According to the Book Development Association of the Philippines, Aklatan is slashing 20 to 70 percent off Filipino titles this month.
From Sept. 25 to 27, score discounted titles from Adarna House, Anvil Publishing, University of Santo Tomas Publishing House, University of the Philippines Press, Komiket and more. Just head to the publishers’ profiles on Lazada, channel your pre-teen peak bookworm era and wait for your package.
