Books Beyond Borders $5 sale

Books – they can be free if you return your NLB books on time. Otherwise, splurging on brand new ones often costs a pretty penny. Enjoy your next book haul at a fraction of usual prices at Books Beyond Borders’ upcoming Fill  A Totebag event, happening from 29th-31st July 2022.  

With just a nifty green note, bookworms can purchase a whole tote bag’s worth of reads. The best part? You can bring your own tote bag of any size.

$5 for a bag of pre-loved books, proceeds go to charity

Books Beyond Borders is a charity organisation that collects and sells pre-loved books, with profits going towards rural public schools in Nepal.

Up next on their calendar is their Fill A Totebag event, where bibliophiles can bag up as many books as they can fit into a tote. While you can bring any bag of your choice, you wouldn’t want to be that person stowing everything you can into a massive IKEA bag. Take a reasonable amount and remember that this is all for a good cause!

Regardless of your taste in books, you’re sure to find something here – YA, Adult, fiction and non-fiction books are all on the table. 

Better yet, more than 500 books in their “bargain section” are up for grabs, with the selection restocked daily. Our pro-tip? Visit as early as possible for the best picks.
