Do you enjoy book festivals but hate leaving the comfort of your home?
Then look out for Pesta Buku Online, an online book fair organised by e-mall 11street and the Malaysian Publishers Association (Mabopa), which ends on May 19.
The fair is offering books, stationery and media products with up to 70% discount, as well as shipping discounts.
It also offers exclusive online promotions that will benefit up to 1.3 million students in public and private universities in Malaysia, as they can use their KAD Siswa 1Malaysia (KADS1M) for lower prices.
As part of the online book fair, 11street has also partnered with MPH Bookstores: until May 19, MPH Bookstores will be offering discounts of up to 70% on local and international titles (including new arrivals and bestsellers) on 11street’s website.
There will also be “Buy 1 Free 1” promotions and value buy deals from as low as RM8.
Consumers visiting 11street’s website during the Pesta Buku Online can also enjoy exclusive promotions from participating bookstores such as BookXcess, Borders, SMOBookstores and more.
The Pesta Buku Online also offers RM7 shipping fee coupons, applicable for deliveries nationwide, which can be downloaded from their website.
The first online book fair by 11street, Pesta Buku Online was announced through a recent memorandum of understanding between 11street and Mabopa, which aims to bring more publishers aboard 11street’s e-commerce wagon.
The MOU was signed by Mabopa president Ishak Hamzah and 11street general manager of marketing Lyle Yoo.
The idea came from 11street’s recent findings that more Malaysians are purchasing books and media online.
Pesta Buku Online is on until May 19, at http://www.11street.my/benefit/promotionDetail.do?planDisplayNumber=587971
