Being a homeschooling family, our family is always together.  I describe ours as a pack of four.  I, however, have proven many times that there’s only one thing that can break our family apart, and that is, a bookstore!  When we’re out, imagine us walking together, side by side, or two by two; but once we step inside a bookstore, everyone instantly disappears and goes on his own, in different directions.

There’s an ongoing book sale now which, I think, will not break our family apart but would rather bring us together.  It’s Books For Less month-long warehouse sale this August and guess what? Books are at P10 each!  What  a bargain!

This morning, Arielle and I walked to the warehouse of Books for Less, which is just a stone’s throw away from where we stay.  There’s absolutely no reason not to go.  Mike and Kayla went home to Batangas yesterday but I’m sure Kayla will request that we go back to check out the books with her.

Arielle and I were at the warehouse before 10 a.m. and stayed for about an hour and a half.  We were armed with our shopping bags, an umbrella, a towel each, and P200-300 in our pockets.

All sorts of books on sale!

Of course, I was looking for materials that I could use as reference for our homeschooling.  I found some hardbound books in math, science, english, reading, algebra, technology, chemistry, economics, writing and was quite hesitant to get them even if they were just P10 because they were old editions but after going through some of the pages, I found them to be a good resource and prompts for discussion and projects.  Arielle, on the other hand, was delighted when I showed her a Walt Disney book and when she herself found some old copies of National Geographic magazines, and Michael Crichton’s Jurassic Park.

Arielle and I went home with 12 books, spending only P120 for all of them!

If you can make time for this book sale, then I strongly suggest that you go first thing in the morning when it’s not too hot yet in the warehouse and on a weekday where there are less people.  I’m glad that’s what we did today!  (And it so happened too that there was a major traffic along C5 that probably caused a little delay in the influx of people planning to go to the book sale.)

Check out Books For Less Warehouse Sale this August 1-31, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., except Sundays and holidays.  You may be able to find the kind of books you need.
