The 33rd Manila International Book Fair - September 2012

The 33rd Manila International Book Fair (MIBF) is here again friends. I'm so excited for this yearly event. It captured the hearts of book-loving Filipinos and become the most awaited event of the year for many of us.

During the last year event, it is said that it was attended by more than eighty five thousand people visiting around 300 exhibitors showcasing thousands of books.

This year, MIBF is scheduled on September 12-16, from 10:00am to 8:00pm at SMX Convention Center, Mall of Asia Complex, Pasay City. Aside from thousands of book exhibits from local and foreign exhibitors, there are also scheduled special co-located events such as book launching, writers meetings, and seminars.

The MIBF also offers wide variety of titles, hard-to-find books, and exhibits books with big discounts. As for me, I love to visit Christian exhibitors and DZAS booth everytime I attend MIBF. Same as before, all book titles from Church Strengthening Ministry (CSM) are all prized at Php100 each.  

Nowadays, as tablets and smart phones are emerging, book authors and publishers consider it as another challenge they are facing. But as for MIBF, publishers and book authors, they will continue its legacy of promoting the love for reading. So what you waiting for friends, come and visit the 33rd MIBF.
