Yesterday we made a trip to BookFest 2015. Although Sunday was the last day, huge crowd still thronged the convention center.
Upon entrance there was a registration booth situated in the middle. Once registered for a Popular online account, you will get a free RM8 book voucher, plus a chance to play the roulette.
The roulette got us some stationery and a mystery gift which contained several food vouchers, like Kenny Rogers, Pancake House, Chicken Rice Shop, Relish & Dubu Yo.
We took a red trolley and started off at the Chinese pavilion with book publishers from China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Malaysia.
All the books were on 20% discount except for promotional and special tagged items which are usually great bargains. Needless to say we stashed our trolley full.
Upon exiting the Chinese books department we had to pay at the cashier.
Then we were off to the English pavilion. We took a second trolley and soon it was full too!
After browsing here we walked to the Edu-Leisure pavilion in Hall 6.
Here you can find stationery, gadgets, education books and tidbits. We stocked up some stationery and moved to cashier lane to checkout.
Many cashier lanes were opened thus waiting time is minimal when we paid for our items.
To share my experience from many years of attending this event, the English books are a steal because the discounted price is way cheaper than Chinese books. Imagine hardcover books which normally sell for RM80~90 sold in RM10~20, which is more than 80% discount! As for Chinese books the discount are not that much, which averaged at 20%.
Tomorrow I shall post my “Catch of the day”. 😀
