BookEnds & Beginnings PH

Here's a little tip if you're new to buying books online: Instagram book stores often have the best (and newest) collections! One of those is none other than the indie online bookstore, BookEnds and Beginnings. With their last drop happening in May, their year-end collection is definitely something you don't want to miss for rare titles and hard-to-find new reads.

Happening every day from Dec.12 to Dec. 15 at exactly 7pm, the IG bookstore will be featuring small, independent publishers committed to pushing literary boundaries with fiction, nonfiction, and poetry.

Unlike book shops with local warehouses, online book sales go by a "first-comment-first-buy" basis, meaning commentators that want a certain title have to wait until it's uploaded to comment "mine", "save", or "next" to reserve the book. May the fastest fingers and Internet connection win.
