Activities for the SG50 celebrations are still pouring in as Singapore celebrates its Jubilee Year. It was just at the beginning of July that the whole nation rejoiced with the Singapore Botanic Gardens for its inscription as our very first UNESCO World Heritage Site. And now, for all book lovers, comes the best books warehouse sale in 2015.
The photo above shows my young friend Grace’s haul of books at the recent book fair at the Singapore Expo. The coming books warehouse sale from 01-10 August is an even better fair for all book lovers and consumers.
My home study contains a mini library of over 600 books. Some of the titles are shown in the photo above. These books continue to provide me with countless hours of reading pleasure and my study room is perhaps a good reflection of my soul.
“A room without books is like a body without a soul.”
― Marcus Tullius Cicero
Often, I have to make room for new books. What I do is to give away those that I have read and do not want to keep, by bringing them to the National Library so that others can benefit too.
This coming books warehouse sale is definitely one where I will go and grab some new titles. Do allow me to share with you the reasons why.
The 5 Reasons Why This Is The Book Fair You Should Attend In 2015
1. Prices Start From As Low As $0.50
At this price, you cannot even buy a cup of coffee at our many “kopi” shops. Just one idea a book is enough ROI (return on investment).
2. A Free Book For Seniors
Yes Seniors, celebrate SG50 and go get a free book. If you are 50 years old and above, simply present your NRIC card to redeem a free book of your choice. No purchase is required. Limited to ONE BOOK per person.
3. Good Range At Great Value
You can practically find any book of your choice. Genres ranged from baby and children books to IT, cookbooks to self-help.
4. More Than 10,000 Titles To Choose From The Sale
Come prepared to spend all the time which you can spare!
5. SG50 Box Sale
This is the most compelling reason for me to spend hours at the sale.
Imagine filling up a box with as many books as you can (magazines are not included) and provided that the books can all fit into the box and can be sealed – the box of books is all yours for just $50. Yes, at half of the $100 per box at their last sale. And each box is valued at $400!

Lastly, please take note that the books warehouse sale is at (and not at the Expo this time round):
438 Ang Mo Kio Ave 10, Industrial Park 1, Level 3, Singapore 569619 (opposite the Pathlight School).
