PHOTOS: Scenes From Manila International Book Fair 2015
Christmas shopping came early for bookworms.
(SPOT.ph) The Manila International Book Fair 2015 was packed with readers of all sorts from September 16 to 20 at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay. There were more than a hundred exhibitors and the place was teeming with shoppers taking advantage of the drop in book prices. Avid readers also went to have their books signed by famous authors such as Christine Brae, Tarryn Fisher, and Colleen Hoover; even Maria Ozawa was there for signing. Some quirky and fun booths were set up for young readers, like coloring stations and storybook reading. There was definitely something for everyone.
People joined the fun for a minimal fee of P20.
