Are you looking to fill your bookshelf with new books? Or is your bookshelf overflowing but you still can’t get enough of books? Those of you living in Singapore or visiting Singapore early August, you’ll want to knock yourselves out at the upcoming SG Book Deals warehouse book sale.
August 1–10, 2015
438 Ang Mo Kio Ave 10
Industrial Park 1
(Opposite Pathlight School, above Rozel Furnishing Store)
Weekends & public holidays: 11 a.m. – 7 p.m.
Weekdays: 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Seniors Receive a Free Book Each
Bring along your parents and grandparents who are 50 and above. To celebrate SG50, they are entitled to one free book each. All they need to do is present their IC to redeem a book of their choice. They need not purchase anything to redeem a book.
SG50 Box Sale
Let’s call this a buffet of books. Pay $50 for a box and you may take home all the books that fit into the sealed box. If you’re interested in playing tangram with books and plan how best to fill such a box, the dimensions are 404x246x242mm. During the previous SG Book Deals sale in April, such a box cost $100. (T&Cs apply — no magazines, books with designated stickers)
Prices start from as low as $0.50 for individual titles. Since this is a clearance sale, expect more backlist titles over recent releases. There will be more than 10,000 titles available at the warehouse sale, so I expect we’ll all find books that interest us.
A good range of books will be on sale: YA books, children’s, general fiction, cookbooks, academic, non-fiction, self-help, Christian, etc.
What to Bring
Cash or NETS
Only cash and NETS will be accepted for payment. Forget credit cards, cheque books or any other forms of payment.
Sturdy Bags or Carriers
Carrying a tower of books home in your arms will prove to be difficult. Come prepared with means to lug home your treasure.
List of Books
This isn’t strictly necessary since you’ll be surrounded by thousands of books, many of which will grab your attention. Personally though, I will have my wishlist of books in hand since those books are my priority. Everything else I’ll pile on afterwards.

Your bookshelves are so pleasing to the eye. How do you not spend your entire day staring at them?
Good luck finding cookbooks and photography books at the sale. :D
To be honest I kind of get overwhelmed at huge warehouse sales. The ones I’ve been to have been too big, too disorganized, and too frantic. I also don’t allow myself to spend money on books, so that takes away some of the fun. I do love going to bookstores and soaking in the bookishn-ess, but I have pretty good self control when it comes to not buying them.
