It’s book budol time once again! Make some more room on your bookshelves this year, budol besties, because the Manila International Book Fair is returning for its second online run from November 17 to 21 on the MIBF website.

The annual book fair, which shifted to its first virtual edition in November 2020 due to the pandemic, is offering an extensive variety of both fictional and non-fictional reads this year, including children’s books, academic books, textbooks, graphic novels, comics, teaching aids, magazines, young adult novels, e-books, best-sellers, and more from various local and international publishing houses.

MIBF shoppers can browse through the MIBF website according to title, category, author, publisher, holiday deals, or latest releases. Once their carts are ready for checkout, guests can pay for their book hauls (plus the shipping fee) online via credit/debit card, GrabPay, DragonPay, GCash, and other mobile wallets. Doorstep deliveries are expected to arrive within 7 to 10 business days after checkout.

Aside from books, the MIBF 2021 also has virtual events to offer guests, like book launches, webinars, panel discussions, workshops, storytelling, and trainings for readers of all ages.

MIBF is one of the biggest and longest-running book fairs in the Philippines. The 2019 edition, held at the SMX Convention Center, Pasay City, featured more than 200 local and foreign publishers and booksellers and 450 booths. The five-day event also held seminars, workshops, book signings, and a Fandom Fest. – Rappler.com
