Oh how I love going to the Manila International Bookfair every year! I always love splurging on great buys!
This year, I bought Wicked by Gregory Maguire & the Wicked piano scorebook! Wicked is probably my favorite Broadway musical next to Annie, and I dream of playing Elphaba one day.
I also bought a drawing book about anatomy, so I can better understand the human figure and draw better pictures of people with better proportions!
Let us not forget Sherlock Holmes! I really like reading about mystery, crime & detectives, so I bought Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. I wonder how long it will take me to read both volumes...
In the Tahanan Books booth, I found hilarious post-its with funny grammar errors by Filipinos. I chose 'For your FYI'. It's so cute! The illustrations are by Elbert Or, who actually dropped by the booth & made On The Spot drawings. He was amazing! I was so inspired after that!
I really can't wait for next year's bookfair!
