i wish i could say that i’ll be there to meet all of you but i learned of the Manila International Book Fair 2015 (#MIBF2015) too late so i wasn’t able to plan my september properly.
however, most of my classmates in my #StrangeLit class (read previous post to know what all the commotion about #StrangeLit is all about) will be there on the 20th and most importantly, my story will be in one #StrangeLit bundle so it will feel like i am almost there. lol.
so i am inviting all of you to come to the #MIBF2015 on sept 16-20 (next week already!) and visit Buqo‘s booth at SMX Convention Center Hall 1, booth 419.
the most awesome thing about going to Buqo’s space is that you can trade one book for any e-book bundle of your choice.
below are the mechanics straight from Buqo’s blog, shared by Ariel Lim:
You donate a book and get an eBook in exchange. It’s that simple!
To join #ABookForAnEBook, all you have to do is drop by our booth at the MIBF, leave your book(s), and get your eBook(s).
The donated books will be given to a chosen library (we have identified certain libraries and will finalize before MIBF starts).
And to show our appreciation, we will be giving an eBook bundle in exchange for every book you donate. You will have 19 bundles to choose from. These bundles all came from the workshops we sponsored.
- #buqosteamyreads – 5 bundles
- #buqoYA – 5 bundles
- #JustWritePH – 5 bundles
- #StrangeLit – 4 bundles
take note that all these story bundles can only be downloaded from the official buqo app only (available in both the App Store for iOS devices and Play Store for android devices).
so bring all the books you can, those that you want to proudly see in libraries one day and say, “hey, those are mine!” and read the works of hardworking filipino writers. as i have mentioned, my story is part of one of the #StrangeLit bundles so look for my name, yes?
fun times to be a bookworm!
