I got home late from the MIBF last night because it extended to 9pm, and because I’m too exhausted for reportage, this post has all my loot photos instead.
I must say I bought a lot more books this year than in recent years — I think the last time my haul matched this year’s numbers was three years ago, but the tension-filled floodwatch for typhoon Mario totally wore me down, so I spent snatches of time in retail therapy yesterday.

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!)
