(SPOT.ph) Let's face it: No bookworm can resist going to book fairs. The Big Bad Wolf Book Sale's Manila run still has a few days left and though you've already probably purchased a year's worth of reads , you might want to start saving up again because the Manila International Book Fair just announced that it will be having its 2019 run from September 11 to 15 at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City.
Unlike the Big Bad Wolf Book Sale, which was brought to the Philippines from Malaysia, the Manila International Book Fair (MIBF) is known for carrying titles from local publishers and distributors. There will also be various discussions, seminars, workshops, and book-signing events that bookworms can look forward to.
Now on its 40th year, the book fair has grown from occupying three halls of SM Megamall to two floors of the SMX Convention Center in recent years. It is known for offering books from top distributors like National Bookstore and Fully Booked at lower prices, as well as having stalls from local publishing houses.
