It's that time of year again; when people gather with friends and families to celebrate the year that's been and make plans for the year that's coming. It's a season of giving, which also means that it's a time of desperate holiday shopping wondering what the heck to give your mother/grandfather/partner this Christmas. Or maybe you just want to shop for yourself, just for the heck of it. That's okay too! In the spirit of goodwill, TOC brings you a series of Christmas Lobangs.
Education doesn't come cheap these days; academic books can really burn a hole in your pocket sometimes. But once a year we get a reprieve as NUS Press slashes its prices for their year-end sale.
NUS Press is offering up to 70 per cent off across 120 titles. Books that once cost almost $40 now cost less than $20. If you ever wanted to collect scholarly works about Singapore and the Southeast Asian region, this is your chance.
Browse their collection here, and order away! The offer ends 31 December.
#protip: Postage in Singapore is pretty affordable, but they use FedEx tracking to ship overseas, so if you have friends outside of Singapore it might be cheaper to ship it to your Singapore address first and hand the goods over later!
