My roommates and I went to Manila International Book Fair today. We went to The Feast mass first (and it was sooo awesome) so we arrived at SMX Convention around 2 PM.
I was certain that I’ll buy The Battle of the Labyrinth to complete my Percy Jackson and the Olympians series and Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children sequel, Hollow City, but then I saw a lot of copy of John Green’s books so I had some second thoughts. I really want to read Looking for Alaska but NBS don’t have any copy of it except for the boxed set. I think I picked up around 10 books but decided to buy the two Rick Riordan books. I went to Fully Booked’s booth to try my luck, and voila! I found a copy of Looking for Alaska.
I’m about to go outside when I saw a paperback copy of House of Hades. But the line to the cashier’s really long and I think my money wasn’t enough so I decided to just buy it next time. Besides, I have read it already.
My first MIBF experience was hella tiring but fun as well. I’m planning to come back next year and hopefully I could buy every book I’ve been aching to read ever since.
