I’m back for the annual MIBF scope out. Sorry this comes late — I spent most of Day 1 running around (see, that photo is proof), got home late and put up my feet… ah tita problems. It’s my thirteenth year on the job at MIBF, and my 25th book fair total — my first was in third grade at the Megatrade Hall — and it’s still a wonderful experience every year.
Anyway, here’s some stuff I got and a lot more I’m eyeing at MIBF (haven’t browsed a lot — I could only squeeze in so much on Day 1, and some stock are still incoming for some booths, please pardon the hasty snapshots). I’m *trying* to read more and buy less (who’dathunk?) so please go ahead and buy out all the books I want? Haha.

With almost 12,000 square meters of exhibit space this year, that means not just more books, but more room for special events such as book signings, workshops, storytelling, fan gatherings, and many more!

This was definitely one of the busiest years of book fair for me, and I’m still in post-MIBF recovery (and back to work), but as promised, here’s the last installment of my #MIBF2016 posts.
