For every book lover out there, the event of the year to be is the annual Manila International Book Fair.  This is the place where they literally dump all the books on you at ridiculously marked down prices.  Year every year, I make it a point to go to the Book Fair and stack up on my collection to fill my little “library” with novels, books, comics, references and whatnot.

There is always something interesting to find in the Book Fair.  Kuya Luis once bought a coffee table book there that costs around 70% off the original price.  I managed to grab several books that I’ve been saving up for, including several inspirational ones from OMF.  In fact, more than half the books in my collection came from the Book Fair.  You just have to buy something from them!  Haha.

This year, I’m hoping to grab some literary and political books from the fair.  I hope there are a lot of interesting new finds this year, because at least now the book fair is one of the things I’m really saving up for (maybe even grab the Twilight series from there!  And since the 4th book has been released by that time, might as well grab it too!)

I don’t know about you all but whenever I go to the book fair, I feel like I’m in paradise.  Reading is one of my many interests in life, and being in a place full of these interesting books just makes me float on cloud nine!  Heh.  And what more, the prices are rock bottom cheap!  I don’t know what to say!

Okay, this is sounding like a sponsored post for the Book Fair now but it’s really not.  In any case, it’s gonna be held a little later this year (usually it’s held at the start of September) and at a new venue at that (the SMX Convention Center!!!  I haven’t even been there yet!).  I think it’s gonna be exciting!  See you there!  =D
