National Book Store, the biggest book store here in the Philippines stored a lot of events this year for book lovers and book worms like me. Just last Saturday I got the chance to joined their Trade Show for bloggers where NBS discussed their year plans and upcoming events. Not only they introduced their different lines of products like their travel items, and designers collections from notebooks, bags and other exclusive items but also they revealed their line-up of possible author invites this year.
For January, they invited New York Times best selling author Gayle Forman for book signing here in Manila and Cebu City. By February they will have inspirational author Mitch Albom, and for April they bringing back Tahereh Mafi and Ransom Riggs with Veronica Rossi. There are more events and tour coming this year though we are not allowed to talk about it for now. Just wait for NBS announcement via their Facebook and Twitter account.
If you noticed from the above poster, NBS reserved a bigger Manila venue this time. Looks like they are expecting more people / book lovers for these three authors above. I’m sure I’ll be there and will be seeing NBS event staffs and book bloggers friends again. Actually, with what NBS planned this year, looks like I’ll be seeing every PH book bloggers and book lovers every month.
