Bloomsbury-Qatar Children’s Books Half Price?

The bright-colored, award-winning children’s-book translations from Bloomsbury Qatar Foundation Publishing, such as إلغرفول، شئ آخر، و أفرضي  are apparently now all the quality, half the price.

I discovered, while visiting al-Balsam Bookstore on its first anniversary, that BQFP titles that were once a difficult 60LE (I think I said a little “ouch” when I bought  إلغرفول) are now around half as much.

So this is apparently the time to buy!

Last night, I read the boys—particularly the three-year-old—أفرضي several times, and they were utterly charmed. The story is simple, but the illustrations are so eye-poppingly wonderful that the book is impossible to resist.

Other discount news in Cairo:

A tweet from @alefbookstore promises: Discount on Arabic Books up to 20% & on English Books up to 25%. Working hours: #Zamalek & #Merghany 11AM-11PM & Alex 11AM-12AM #EgyptReads.

At Kotob Khan today (New Ma’adi), books are discounted in celebration of the store’s 5th birthday.

      It depends on where you are! You can get many BQFP titles on Amazon, although I’m not sure if they’ve lowered the prices there….
