It’s been such a long day so this post will be mostly photos. Day 2 is normally the lightest of all the days I work at the MIBF, but for some reason, all my major tv coverages coincided on the same day and I ended up overseeing shoots from early morning breakfast show to primetime news all the way down to late night news!
(The only reason I’m still awake is because the caffeine hasn’t worn off yet. Because I’ve had plenty.)
So while I clocked in fifteen hours at the fair today, there was still no time for leisurely shopping. Squeezed in what little I could — each tv crew arrived nearly at the heels of the previous one (a happy problem for a publicist), so I had to snatch whatever free time I could in between (laaate lunch, coffee break[s], and book hunting) while paranoidly checking my phone every thirty seconds. Haha.
Anyway, here are my Day 2 photos of MIBF 2013 (and up there, see, I got to take a new aerial shot after three years!), mostly of items that caught my eye:
The Scholastic booth also featured this totally cool “Wicked History” series for libraries!
Love the etched illustration style combined with the graffiti effect.
Oh, and I know someone who’d go gaga over this. (NBS)
These are the books I did buy today:
And the drawing books I wanted yesterday. (P436 each, discounted from P545)
There are more events lined up at the MIBF over the next three days (and *fingers crossed* less work for me to do), so I’ll have some serious reportage for you soon.
Meanwhile, I need to get some shut-eye. I’ll see you out there at the MIBF!
