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.

From the NBS booth: gave in to another fandom (Pegasisters and Bronies unite!),
because I keep coloring books in my filing cabinet at work — for therapy!

Also from the NBS Booth: This one, I got signed for you guys. I have a big giveaway looming… maybe on Halloween?

From the UP Press bargain bin — a bit beat up around the edges (so hipster!),
but not a bad deal as these only set me back P60! And I really wanted these titles, too.

A gift from Anvil (thanks Ms. G!). Lucky that Claude Tayag was there to sign it, as I forgot my copy of Linamnam!

Went CRAZY! Got a TON of picture books at OMF Lit because they were only P20 each!

The Suplado doll, a gift from Mr. Suplado, Stanley Chi, himself!
My sister has christened it “Igme,” LOLZ.

Back at the NBS Booth — I’ve been meaning to get this for ages!

And finally, my new Archie stash (also from NBS)! All done now, after my lie-in weekend!

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.
