A Day at the Manila International Book Fair 2012

Books is one of the two things in life that we spend a lot on guilt-free. The other one is food. 

I'm very thankful that our eldest son shares the same passion with books as I. He really loves to read and we really encourage him to. We scrimp a lot on toys but when they ask us for books, we never hesitate. We can confidently say "get as much as you like" to our kids when it comes to books because knowledge knows no bounds.

Upon J6 (eldest son) request, we headed over to the Manila International Book Fair last Sunday morning to get his knowledge-fix.

The most visited stalls are National Book Store and Fully Booked. NBS was well-stocked but Fully Booked gave better service. All of their staff at the MIBF were very much knowledgeable about their products.

The event was not limited to books. Some stalls sold educational toys and board games as well.

There is more to reading than literacy - true! The family that reads together, stays together.
