Back from Day 1 of the Manila International Book Fair, and I’m pretty worn out, but happy. I was not in book shopping mode (not yet), and I was only able to get one book (it’s true!), but it’s been a very productive day otherwise.
Opening day is always my busiest, and it was busier than usual this year. Most of my work is concentrated on opening day, as I have interviews lined up across the day, and I have to snatch pockets of time in between to write some book fair stories to send out immediately. So mission accomplished on that end.
Tonight I got home from one of the most exciting events I’ve covered in my stint as a book blogger: National Book Store’s Kobo launch.
Yes, that’s right, one of the world’s biggest players in e-reading, Kobo, has teamed up with the brick and mortar National Book Store for a digital reading ecosystem in the Philippines.
Three Kobo devices: the award-winning Kobo Touch, the Kobo Glo, and the Kobo Touch will be exclusively available at selected National Book Store branches, Powerbooks stores, and via nationalbookstore.com starting Sept. 20. Simultaneous with the devices, a Philippine website will also go live on Sept. 20, giving readers access to both local and international titles in Kobo’s eBookStore.
