Powerbooks, by far.

But there's really no competition because both are owned by the same family.

im more comfortable going to National Bookstore, siguro kasi mas accessible yung place niya....like sa glorietta, malapit lang sa entrance to SM, unlike yung Powerbooks, most of the time hinahanap ko pa.

Powerbooks for me - the staff are more accomodating and naka arrange talaga so it's easy to find a book

I think same lang ang price nila, same owner lang rin sila.. mas maraming specialty books sa powerbooks compared sa national :) ....

Powerbooks!  - especially if you have their discount card, 10% for cash payment, 5% for credit card.  While I browse around the store, I leave my 11 yr old  to read her fave mangga books which cost about P500each.    She is almost done with vol. 7  (imagine my savings!). Kaya this summer tambay kami sa Megamall para magpalamig while reading.   ;D  I am not a fast reader so I buy the novels, but when it comes to some reference books like gardening, decorating tips, I can browse through it.   
I don't know where I am going and I don't care where I've been.  Its for me to find out.  I'll never know until I try.

yup sis mas mahal nga ng konti sa powerbooks. Me naman kasi habit ko na na mag canvass muna ng price sa national then tsaka ako pupunta sa powerbooks. minsan mas mahal ng konti sa powerbooks pero mas maganda naman yung design ng cover nila or sometimes may choices pa ng design ng cover.
