I'm live blogging from sm mall of asia as i wait for a friend who wants me to accompany her yk the book fair. I've already been with another friend of mine and i can say i was quite disappointed. Gone are the quirky stalls of powerbooks and a different bookstore from lady year, and i didnt end up with lots of buys as i thought i would. Tried to check out the anvil publication booth but again, nothing. Only notable thing for me is the national bookstore booth. They have an almost complete series of the guardians if gahoole (except for book 2- which totally annoyed me). There's also some new books up for sale at 20% off. Although, if you dont like to pay the p20 admission to the book fair, mall of asia vranches of national amd powerbooks are on sale. 20% off also on selected imported books. And my favourite bookstore, booksale has great finds.
So i left the bookfair with nothing, except for a used copy of wolf hall, by hilary mantel from booksale. Its quite expensive at p225 but its a 1st edition trade paperback, i think.
Have fun at the book fair and hipeully you guys going there will have better luck with your book buys than me!!
