This weekend, AUC Bookstore in Tahrir is preparing to welcome hundreds of avid readers, bookworms and bargain-hunters for the Tahrir Book Fair – three days of browsing and rummaging through hundreds of discounted books, gifts and accessories.
With AUC Bookstore set to slash a hearty 20% off all prices and sell books for as cheap as 10LE, you’ll need to get in there fast, but aside from the shop itself offering these outlandish deals, several stalls will be set up across the campus for your buying pleasure.
The deals don’t end there, however; purchases of 200LE plus will be bestowed with a 50LE voucher that can be used at AUC Bookstore’s customary stall at the Cairo International Book Fair in 2016.
The event marks an important few months for the shop, which stands as one of the best and most variedly stocked bookshops in Cairo. In October, the now renowned Kasr El Aini entrance to the shop was finally reopened having been closed during the revolution – an opening that is every bit as symbolic as it is practical.
The Tahrir Book Fair will is set to kick off on Friday 11th and run till Sunday 13th (of December ) and will be in operation between 10AM and 6PM. Go forth and buy.
