6 Interesthings at the #MIBF2016

We sneaked early into the Manila International Book Fair this year, and we thought we’d share with you a few excithings from Day 1 that might make you want to swing by ASAP. Enjoy!

1. These newly launched pun-ny notepads by Elbert Or and Lorra Elena Angbue-Te:


Available at Tahanan Books

2. The Return of the Young Prince  by A.G. Roemmers, which appears to be very in-demand


Available at Fully Booked

3. This book which title will make any politically engaged Pinoy chuckle:


Available at Adarna House

4. More than enough copies of the elusive Kitchen Confidential by Anthony Bourdain


Available at Fully Booked

5. This awesome booth:


How to get here: Enter through Hall 3


Books from #romanceclass, #StrangeLit and #HeistClub are available

BONUS: These equally awesome indie authors!

BONUS+: #AllTheFeels on Sunday!


and 6…


Surprise! Nope, we’re not exhibitors, but you may find some #readingnation bookmarks and stickers at this year’s MIBF, especially when you drop by the Indie Publishers booth. And when you do, let us know. We’re always excited to meet more people who support the #readingnation! ☁

    Thanks for featuring our notepads as one of your MIBF finds! However I’d like to request for proper credit be attributed not just to me but to my wife Lorra Elena Angbue-Te as well; not only are both our names clearly listed on the back, but especially because she did the lion’s share of the work, so it’s only fair. Thanks so much!

      Hello, Elbert! Our apologies to Ms. Lorra; we’ve put in her name as well. Thank you for the correction!
