Deck the Haul | 34th Manila International Book Fair

As predicted, I am wiped out.

Despite feeling terribly tired, it was fun to be at the 34th Manila International Book Fair (MIBF). Best friend Jake was with me this year and he volunteered to carry the other books I would have lugged around by my own.

Though I had a book list with me, I only found a third of all that was on the list, even when the books are listed in the participants’ web sites. Either I did not look hard enough or they were never there.

Stranger still, AZ Publishing, Inc.—the guys that bring Reader’s Digest to the MIBF—are missing this year.

With all those details aside, here’s my haul for this year:

    Glad to see the Game of Thrones box set there! And Neil Gaiman, too!

      Thanks so much!
      There would’ve been a third Gaiman book – The Silver Dream – but I did not find it.

    Oooohhhh….I always miss this event! It has always been my dream to be around a book fair in the Philippines. But every time, I’m always out of the country^^*

      Oh. Too bad.
      The MIBF always happens midway through September. At least for the last few years. And, also like that, its venue is the SMX Convention Center.
      Hope you can join next year.
