BOOBS!!! MILF!!! SEX!!!




Advertising 101:
How To Arouse Readers
By Using A Sexy Headline



Mad Men strategies aside,
here's the real nerdier headline:

BOOKS!!! MIBF!!! SMX!!!





The 29th Manila International Book Fair
opened yesterday at the SMX Convention Center
beside the Mall of Asia, and as expected,
my fellow book geeks came out in full force.


This annual event is the Pinoy Bookworms' counterpart
of the Black Friday Post-Thanksgiving Sale in the US:
The widest selection, the best bargains!!!



All the major publishing houses and bookstores are present,
inluding my college alma mater:

UST Reprezent!!!!





I almost bought this "Box Set",
but I decided not to, because...

let me ask the BEATLES fans:
What's wrong with this picture?






I finally found, after months (years!)
of looking for a book about NINOY AQUINO,

this series of essays by his good friend
and fellow reporter who eventually became
one of the first Cory Crusaders:





Interesting that the other book I got
looked very similar to the one above,

and even more interesting, PAUL NEWMAN's
title & subtitle would fit Ninoy's perfectly too:






Tens of Thousands of Tomes!!!

'Til Tuesday!!!
