An Invitation to All Book Lovers in Manila

11 Sep

Hear ye! Hear ye!

Attention to all BOOK LOVERS. It’s the time of the year again for us to invade the shelves in the SMX Convention Center for the 2011 MANILA INTERNATIONAL BOOKFAIR. Hurray!

Yuppers! From September14 to 18, SMX Convention Center will be converted into a haven for all book lovers, as books will be offered at jaw-dropping discounted prices!  Ain’t it great? That for sure made your eyes grow bigger and made you smile from ear to ear. 🙂

I’m super excited!

I remember last year, I was jobless (I quit) and was enjoying my freedom (haha), but almost broke (LOL) but still I didn’t let the book fair pass. I had to be there. I can’t miss the event. Nooooooooooooooooo!!! Not for a book sucker like me. 🙂 It was the time when OMF Literature launched Joshua Harris’s newest book Dug Down Deep in the Philippines and offered it at 50% discount. Cool!

Right, so for this year I’ll be there again.  And I’m inviting you all to take part of this event and raid the shelves of the different publishing companies and bookstores participating in this fair.

OMF Literature will be one of those who will generously give discounts to the book suckers, I mean lovers. 🙂 OMF will also be launching new titles that will for sure inspire us, instruct us and gives us valuable insights like all the books they have been sharing to the readers. Here’s the list of their newest titles both from homegrown and international authors:
