Finally home from the first day of the 35th Manila International Book Fair, and I’ve got lots to show you! :)
I’m home after the last day of the MIBF, and I think I carted out the biggest haul I’ve had in years. I thought last year’s loot was quite a haul, but it pales in comparison to this year’s three-post-running loot, and I’m glad my mom is out of town, or else I’d have to smuggle my purchases inside the house!
Now I need to shelve these (stuff them in with the old so they don’t look newly-acquired, hehehe) before mom gets back in town!
As you can probably tell, I’m totally zonked from five days of the MIBF — I think I was there from opening to closing time nearly everyday!
Well, you’ve seen half of my loot — and there’s more to come, but in the meantime, here’s the weekend I spent at the 32nd Manila International Book Fair!
Aieee!!! I thought the past couple of days were already a rampage, but I came home with a huge haul today; bought more books than I could carry!
I was waiting for some guests to arrive, and they were delayed ’til the evening so I had a little more time to shop. And then Dianne returned and we ended up splurging again!
Every year, the plan is to pace myself, especially because I’m at the Manila International Book Fair every single day.
Of course, every year is somewhat of a fail, but I don’t think it’s ever been as epic a fail as this year! I normally buy one or two books during the weekdays, and reserve shopping for the weekend, but when you’re in the company of enablers *cough cough Flippers cough cough Team WAADO cough cough* it’s really hopeless.
So I might as well show you what I got (quick, before the guests I am waiting for get here!)
