A Bibliophile’s Dream: A Book Fair!
There is no better past time than reading a book. One learns so many things in a good read that you would not have found anywhere else. Ok, there’s tv, the Internet, Discovery Channel, Wikipedia, but the element of thrill and excitement will nowhere be near to reading a good book. To bibliophiles at least.
For the past two years, I have been attending the Manila International Book Fair for updates on the latest reading material. Since getting into publishing myself, I have found a renewed interest in reading – this time in the publishing side. With hubby in tow, off we went to SMX Convention Center to attend the exhibit.
The book fair had a lot of surprises that day. We were able to catch a story-telling competition by Lampara Books. There was a book launch and signing in the afternoon by the celebrated Filipino author Samantha Sotto for her book entitled “Before Ever After”, which is drawing good reviews in the international scene. Unfortunately, could not stay long to watch it. Pugad Baboy’s famed creator Pol Medina, Jr. came too.
