Fancy traveling to different places? Or meeting unusual characters? Does the prospect of going on a fantastical adventure bring a tingle to your spine? Books are one of the best things that we can ever own, for where else can we find a chance to escape to different worlds and dimensions with just a single flip of its page? It is precisely the magical feeling that books bring that keeps us spellbound.
Experience all those and more as Market! Market! presents "Mad About Books", a special 6-day book fair. From July 27 to August 1, 2009, indulge yourself in great deals and discounts on books, books and more books. With 5 different bookstores participating in the fair, expect to stumble upon exciting reading discoveries without breaking the bank. There will also be fun activities such as storytelling and arts and crafts demos, as well as appearances by popular characters such as Clifford and Geronimo Stilton. Visit the Scholastic booth and join the Logico challenge and Amazing Book Race, and enjoy video presentations of well-loved children's book titles. You can also share the love of reading with less fortunate kids by donating your old books at the Donate-A-Book corner. Plus, shoppers who present P1,000 worth of same-day receipts from our participating Mad About Books merchants get a free cup of coffee at the reading lounge.
So mark your calendars and experience the thrill that only books can bring at Mad About Books at Market! Market!
