It's the time of the year again when book lovers become giddy and dizzy with anticipation and excitement. The Manila International Book Fair would be held this week, September 12-16, at the SMX Convention Center, Mall of Asia.
My kids are excited. And I'm so glad they are. Basti had been saving up and cutting down on buying junk foods so he could buy loads of comic books and the two younger ones are excited to get new Tagalog books. My kids have been gifted a set of Tagalog books mostly from Adarna Publishing House and we had rediscovered the love for reading just after Typhoon Habagat. Just in time for the MIBF!
Last year, we had a blast. We'll be going on the weekend just like last year. We wanted to go on a weekday to avoid the crowd, but hubby has to go to the office and the kids have to go to school.

See you there! Come early to avoid the crowd and to be able to go through each and every exhibitor's booth at leisure. And bring enough cash or what have you to be able to buy your favorite books because I'm pretty sure you'll go over budget especially those of you who go on a trance with the smell of books. This is a great time also to shop for Christmas gifts for a lower price.
And by the way, you can snag free tickets at the Adarna House. Just download and print at the site, http://adarna.com.ph.
