And the Book Fair Bandit strikes again…
I seem to have caught a bug at the MIBF — I’ve been laid up for the past week with a nasty respiratory tract infection. But no one will believe my Book Fair purchases amounted to just one post, so here it is, finally, Part 2 of my MIBF loot!
These hardcovers were part of a 4-for-P100 deal at Tradewinds (influenced by my friend Fran,
who proved to be a fellow Book Fair bandit herself!).
The 4th book is another copy of Butcher, Baker, Candlestick Maker, which went to my cousin.
And no, I don’t read Ilocano, but Emil and the Detectives is a childhood favorite. You know me.
Not a book, but book-related, and not from the Book Fair but at the Best of Anime Convention upstairs.
The gang from Lupin III in gashapon (alas, sans Jigen!): Goemon, Lupin, Fujiko and Zenigata for only P75.
A gift from Anvil (thanks Ms. G!). Lucky that Claude Tayag was there to sign it, as I forgot my copy of Linamnam!
The Suplado doll, a gift from Mr. Suplado, Stanley Chi, himself!
My sister has christened it “Igme,” LOLZ.
Not bad, considering this year has been the busiest MIBF for me, and I’m literally still recovering from the after-effects. I still have some photos to share with you, but it will have to wait until another post. Off to bed, and hopefully I’ve seen the last of this dratted bug by tomorrow.
