[Events] 35th Manila International Book Fair 2014

The Philippine’s biggest book fair is here!

Manila International Book Fair

The annual Manila International Book Fair is back for its 35th year! If you’re a certified book lover, then this event is for you! Fiction, non-fiction, graphic novels, academic textbooks, and other educational materials will be showcased and sold in discounted prices by a wide variety of book distributors and local publishing houses.

I am totally excited on getting more books this year, never mind that I haven’t even started on the books I got last year. You can read more on our last year’s MIBF experience here: Obligatory Monday Post. I am hoping to get some Rainbow Rowell (Eleanor and Park) and David Levithan books, as well as a set of A Song of Ice and Fire books.

Entrance fee is 20 pesos for adults and 15 pesos for students / senior citizens. You can get free tickets from any Fully Booked branches or print out these free tickets from Adarna House.
