The final day of the Hong Kong Book Fair has arrived, and book lovers are flocking to the event in hopes of taking advantage of massive discounts on books.
Booksellers are offering deals such as buy-one-get-one-free and half-price for a set to clear their remaining stock.
Many travel guidebooks are being sold for just HK$10 for two, while children's storybooks are going for HK$10 each.
Last-minute shoppers are taking advantage of the discounts to get the books they want at a much cheaper price.
Lai, a bookseller at the fair, reports that his business has increased by 10 percent due to the growing number of mainland readers at the event.
The deputy executive director of the Hong Kong Trade Development Council, Sophia Chong Suk-fan, is confident that this year's attendance will reach 800,000, thanks to the lifting of Covid
-19 restrictions and the influx of visitors from overseas and the Greater Bay Area.
The book fair will run until 5 pm today, giving book lovers one last chance to take advantage of the discounts and stock up on their favorite titles.
With so many great deals available, it's no wonder that the final day of the Hong Kong Book Fair is always such a popular event.
