National Bookstore (NBS), Philippines’ staple bookstore that Filipinos frequent especially during before the start of classes, provides a variety of helpful materials that cater the kids and adults alike. From local and international books, lifestyle catalogues, they also offer school and office supplies. Surely, most Filipinos know the excitement NBS brings as they shop and cruise for their stationery needs!
As a bookstore, NBS not only exhibits the works of international authors, but also provides an avenue for Philippine-based professional and aspiring writers–thus promoting Philippine Literature and Philippine Literacy. Because of its sales, NBS releases an annual list of its top-selling books. This year, EPIK’s very own write Rhadson Mendoza is a part of NBS’ top!-selling books! His book Bakit List with the hashtag #NBSbooksOfTheYear, amongst others, made it to their Intagram account together with some of their best-selling books:
