Visit the Scholastic Warehouse Sale this Summer!

Posted on

Wow! Another Scholastic Warehouse sale!

We’re big, huge fans of reading here and especially love to get books on sale, books being as pricey as they are. Though I read most of my books on my Kobo I do collect titles I want to have hard copies of. My collection is pretty small due to the limited space BUT I’m always on the lookout for certain titles.

This summer Scholastic is having another Sizzling Summer Sale on March 23 – May 24, 2015 at their Pasig warehouse.

I’ve actually been there before just last Christmas and got an awesome deal on their Harry Potter book. An unbelievable Php75 only!

There are also plenty of popular titles on sale such as The Hunger Games series which I have yet to covet. Hopefully this time around I finally get my copy.

A wide selection of picture books, fiction and nonfiction books, popular series, references, inspirational, arts and crafts and interactive products are being offered at up to 80% discount!

Warehouse gates open at 9am-6pm daily, except on Sundays and holidays. Due to the Holy Week holiday they will be open only until 12 noon on April 1 and will resume on Easter Monday, April 6.

Summer is the perfect time to catch up on some reading and during my last visit there were plenty of titles for kids.

See you there!

Kobo Glo Sleepcover

Posted on

I know there’s a big debate over reading “real” books or reading on ereaders. Truth be told I still love the smell of a good worn book. I love to see a row of books on a shelf BUT if for every book that I wanted to read I needed to actually buy a “real” book and have it at home I would be swimming in books. I almost was at one point until I finally and painstakenly let go of most of my collection. I only kept the ones that I truly love and hold my interest no matter how many times I’ve read them.

I have come to LOVE my Kobo Glo which was one of the best gifts I’ve ever received. This bookworm will take books in any way, shape or form. When I first got my Kobo Glo the first thing I searched for was a Kobo Glo sleepcover. I saw a ton online but none that I could find here.

Galleon to the rescue! I was able to find an authentic Kobo Glo sleepcover and have it delivered right to my doorstep! Galleon is the place to go to for products not found in the Philippines. Check it out here.

I might sound crazy… BUT isn’t this a beaut?! Leather charcoal black cover with a magnetic closure and a garter to secure it. At first I was worried that I would scratch up the cover or marks would be on there in no time but to my surprise even when I accidentally scratched it there wasn’t any kind of mark. It’s a soft leather so there aren’t any finger marks as well.

My Kobo Glo is white so it’s a nice contrast to the black sleepcover.

The inside is smooth and makes sure that your Kobo Glo will not get scratched. It fits nicely and easily into the 4 corner brackets. Perfectly suited and made for my baby.

As you can see the on/off and light buttons are easily accessible though you won’t have much need to use the on/off button since your Kobo Glo will automatically “sleep” when closed and “wake up” when opened.

The charger port is in the middle so no problems.

Nice and compact, perfect to bring with you anywhere.You can secure it with the garter and even if you read it with the backside folded it still closes all the way which I love. I was checking for creases on the spine of the sleepcover but none so far!

I am loving my Kobo Glo sleepcover! It’s definitely a worthy investment to protect your ereader.

Get yours at Galleon!

36 Days of Buqo Christmas is Here!

Posted on

The Christmas season is so exciting especially since it’s the time for gift giving!

If you’re a reader like me then you’ve probably heard of the Buqo Bookstore app. Buqo is a digital bookstore having everything from books to magazines.

This Christmas Buqo has a surprise for it’s readers. They’re giving away 1 free ebook/magazine each day until December 31. Each free item will be available for download for 24 hours only. 

Read up on what Buqo has to offer!

The Thrill of Giving

‘Tis the season of giving and, yet again, the Christmas spirit brings out the generous side in most (if not all) of us. We here at Buqo have also contracted the generosity bug that’s been going around! So to mark our very first Christmas, we have prepared a little something (quite awesome, actually) just for you!

That “Childhood” Feel

We want you to re-experience that “childhood” feeling of anticipating, of finding your gift under the Christmas tree, up to the moment of opening it to your heart’s delight. But this time, allow us to do it digitally (we’re an app after all). Dear friends, we present to you “36 Days of Buqo Christmas”. Yes, that’s 36 days! Because 12 days just isn’t enough!

A New Gift Every Day!

So what happens in those 36 days? Buqo will be giving away a book or magazine EVERY SINGLE DAY from November 26 up to the very last day of 2014. A new item will be featured daily and will be completely free to download for 24 hours. Hey, that’s a total of 36 books and magazines you’ll be finding under the “Christmas tree” (a.k.a. the “36 Days of Buqo Christmas” banner in the app). Isn’t that exciting?!

How Does It Work?

We kept it simple. Starting November 26 at 11:00am, a new book or magazine will be unveiled on our social media channels as the featured freebie every day (better add us up now!). You will then have 11:00am until 10:00am the next day to get it. When 11:00am comes around again, a new freebie will be up for grabs.

The buqo app and website will have a special banner in the store that you can check anytime for the featured freebie. If you don’t have the buqo app yet, now’s the best time to get it.
