Even when I was little, I would rather read books than go outside to play under the sun. I would rather travel to different places in my mind, meet different people and experience what the other world has to offer. What I can’t see with my own eyes, I imagine with my heart. When I see books, I become a little child again.
Last Saturday, September 15, I’ve had the privilege to explore the 33rd Manila International Bok Fair because of free tickets. Though one ticket would just cost you Php20, still, the best things in life are free. Together with my buddies Karmila Ortega and Diana Canlas, we had the chance to have our books autographed by Lourd de Veyra, Ramon Bautista, Ambeth Ocampo, Tado and Dr. Margie Holmes. Bet whose the most excited and happy above all? It’s Karmila because she can’t even take away that smile plastered on her face the whole time we’re book-shopping. 🙂
