Feature & Follow #27: Interesting Bookish Experiences


Feature and Follow is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. It is where we, book bloggers, can meet new people and gain followers as well!

This week's prompt:
What is your most interesting bookish experience or memory?

Aah. I can't choose a specific one. I'll give 3, in no particular order. :)

Manila International Book Fair (MIBF)
MIBF is the biggest book fair here in the Philippines. It is held yearly, every September, at the SMX Convention Center, Mall of Asia. I always look forward to attending this book fair because of different bookish activities and book discounts!


Here's the latest MIBF I went to:

Visit to MV Logos Hope- a floating book fair!
Last year, my folks and I went to Subic to visit MV Logos Hope. I was so excited seeing the shelves of books.


Here's a recap of that experience: Photo Diary: MV Logos Hope- World's Largest Floating Book Fair.

Book Signing Events
It's not very often that we get authors here in the Philippines, so it's always an interesting experience to see them in person, have our books signed, and photo-ops! Though I get annoyed by people screaming while there's an author interview, in general, I do enjoy book signing events.

That's all folks! I hope in the future I'll have more interesting, memorable bookish experience!

  1. I'd always get invites from fellow bloggers but since I was an anon blogger (5 years) then, I tend to stay away from signing events/book fair. Oh, I only went to one - Lea Salonga's. Just because I need to be there - business related. =)

  3. That floating book fair looks like it's SO MUCH FUN! I've never even been to a book fair or convention, but I'd make extra effort if it was on a BOAT!
