Back-to-School SALE!

May 3 to 31, up to 70% off on selected=

We know you’d be really sad to hear that we’ll be increasing our prices by June 1, with our storybooks at Php 73.00 and our big books at Php 275.00.  This is the first time we’re increasing our prices after almost 5 years, so we understand your misery, and we are grateful to know that you understand ours.

But we can’t just do that without a big send-off party to our old prices.  So please join us as we say a proud goodbye to our 65-peso storybooks with a month-long sale where they will be sold at only 50 pesos each.   Selected items will also be on sale, for up to 70% off!  Yehey!

To avail of these huge discounts, come and visit us at our showroom (2/F FSS Building, 20 Scout Tuason corner Scout Castor Streets, Barangay Laging Handa, Quezon City) from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM, Mondays through Saturdays, from May 3 to May 31.

Get the chance to be published!

We weren’t kidding when we said we work really hard to make sure we only publish quality reading materials.  2010 is just about to say goodbye to its first half, but we are already gearing up for our 2011 line-up.

And, well, we need your help.  We are looking for manuscripts to complete our cast of new books.  We welcome stories of any topic, but are currently particularly interested in storybook manuscripts that deal with math, reading, health, environmental awareness, legends, heroes, historical events, special topics (death, peace, adoption, autism, children’s rights), and Filipino values (love of country, pagmamano, po at opo, colonial mentality, and value of freedom, language, culture, and history).

Submit three (3) copies of your original manuscript typewritten on short bond paper accompanied by a one-page literary bio-data.  On the first page of the manuscript, indicate its genre (short story, nonfiction, poetry, etc.) and the literary contest/s it has won, if any.

Address your submissions to Ani Almario, Product Development Manager, ADARNA HOUSE, 2/F FSS Bldg., 20 Scout Tuason cor. Scout Castor Sts., Brgy. Laging Handa, Quezon City 1103. Submissions have to be accompanied by a self-addressed, self-stamped envelope to facilitate return after being screened. Manuscripts may be dropped off at our showroom, or sent through post.

And, very important, please take note that no manuscript submissions may be sent over e-mail.  More information may be found at our FAQs page.

30 for 30 book blowout

It’s our 30th birthday, and we are treating you to an exciting sale:  for an hour in 2010, you can buy 30 storybooks for only 30 pesos each from our showroom.

On March 20, 2010 (a Saturday), all Adarna House  storybooks — worth 65 pesos on regular occasions — will be on sale for 30 pesos each from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM.   On that morning, the showroom doors will only be open for that fateful hour.  The rest of the morning, only Adarna House staff will be allowed to enter the showroom.

The thirty-peso purchases will be limited to 30 books per person, so books in excess of the 30 books have to be purchased at regular price.  Not to worry, all customers who enter the showroom during the given sale period will be allowed to stay in the showroom beyond 11:00 AM  in order to settle their purchases.  After 11:00 AM, selling of 30-peso books will stop, only the books in the hands of customers by 11:00 AM will be considered for the sale.

So.  10:00 AM.  March 20.  Mark your calendars.

1 hour.  30 storybooks.  30 pesos each.

1 hour. 30 storybooks. 30 pesos each.
