Aside from seeing familiar faces and friends. The Manila International Bookfair is also a place where you can get lots og good stuff for the right price and as well as everyone's favorite - FREEBIES.
Who doesn't like FREEBIES? At the Fari there are lots of FREE stuff you can get for the just paying a very cheap entrance fee of Php 20.00.
There are magazine samples that are given at many booths. The unending blatant show of big discounts and maybe this the place where you can find that rare book you are looking for. Just ask around and everyone is really friendly.
So what did I get from this year? FREE Postcards and old books.
