33rd Manila International book fair 2012

In this day and age, the internet and television have become most people’s main form of entertainment and reading is becoming a thing of the past and I guess this is the reason why I don’t have a television for almost 5 years. I don’t like having a television at my room; it eats too much time instead of doing something productive. So whenever it’s my off or rest day and no errands to do I read a good book but I don’t limit myself to just a book. I also read countless magazines glossy or not and newspapers which my mom and friends hate me…my room looks like a stock room or should I say a mini library on the making.
 
So when Bibliarch bookstore gives me a free pass to the 33rd Manila International book fair 2012 at SMX Convention Center of SM Mall of Asia, there is no way I’d pass this change even thou work is in between.
  This is a good way to promote the love of reading!

Every Child to read more, learn more, understand themselves....
Busy? Pressed? Exhaused? Live a Life well-lit.
            Reading is an important skill that needs to be developed in children. It can open up new     
worlds and enrich children's lives...kaya dapat ito ang inject ntin sa mga bagets now!
para ala Einstein ang brainy!
Philippines leading bookstores join the event and other publishing houses!
Then bumped into an old friend..couple:)
My love! I'm still in relationship with Haruki Murakami bought his new  release 1Q84
 a three volume book!
Thank you bibliarch-fullybooked for the free pass and experience!  Book fairs are the best place to learn and get to know the local authors or purchase books with great discounts, family or friend bonding as well.

And if you’re an author or writer this is best time to make great contacts or networks for your future publisher:)

  3. I like National Book store sa Philippines. mayroon ba silang available to download directly of your kindle fire. I hate buying book, very heavy... mas maga-an siguro pag download nalang..Have a good day

  4. I so agree with you on reading. Nothing is better in free time than reading. And even a movie based on a book is not as good. I drooled over the book fair. So happy you were able to experience it.

  22. Right in my neck of the woods, reading is quite a habit, especially on those long subway rides where Kindle or Ipad keeps the brain entertained.

  37. Fortunately I've seldom needed any incentive to feel like reading. I've always loved it and that's why it's hard for me to see that less and less people do it nowadays, especially our youth. My sister barely picks up a book and I think this book fair would be nice for her!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Looks like this was fun! I miss book fairs - haven't been to one since I was little.

  41. I KNEW IT! I said to myself, there's something special about her. And yes it is- YOU'RE ALSO A MURAKAMI LOVER! Not a fan but HIS LOVER!

    hahaha!

    I love Haruki Murakami. I'm so smitten by his talent and incredible creativity. Iisipin mo talaga paano niya naisip yon!

    I wish I could go there. I've been to a lot of cultural events and festivals and concerts, but never to a book festival. And to say that I'm a book lover- a nerdy book worm. Yun na lang ang kulang sa akin para talagang maging bibliophile na talaga ako.

    I've got lots and lots of books in my room. So many that one time i had to throw away my clothes in my closet so I can put some of my books there. Hehehehe!

  43. I went to this event too and managed to buy two books and one Doraemon comic. I agree with you, TV takes so much time but I love watching too so I just try to manage my time between watching and reading.
