Are you a bookworm? Well, I’m most definitely a certified bookworm. Hey… I even have a blog dedicated to do just book reviews HERE 😀 But these days I’ve been slacking in that department a lil bit. Why? Well, it’s not that I haven’t been reading, but it’s just that I’m too lazy and not motivated to write reviews these days. Sorry publishers… sorry authors… this year I’m taking a lil bit of Sabbatical from reviewing ARC and doing Blog Tours. I’ll let you know when I’m in the mood for it, and hopefully, it will be soon.
But much as I’m not very inspired to write book reviews these days, I’m still eating books from breakfast, lunch and dinner. Okay, okay, that’s a bit exaggerating. I’m still reading books…mainly fiction in the romance genre in the form of Ebooks. These days, I lack appetite for paperbacks. Why? Gee… I don’t know. They’re heavy, not very easy to carry around while traveling and not to mention, they kinda cost a bomb these days.Â But there are times where I miss the smell of books and pages being turned. It’s just that they are not very… you know…kind to my pocket when I can just easily download books on the net. Yes… I know there are plenty of book fairs around selling excess books like The Big Bad Wolf Warehouse Sale, but as an author and novelist myself, I know that authors DO NOT get any royalty from excess books. 🙁 And I kinda do not like the idea buying books and the author gets nothing out of it. 🙁
Lucky for me, though…there’s this: Putrajaya International Book Fair (Bookerville).
Putrajaya International Book Fair as this is truly a first-of-its-kind book fair in Malaysia. The fair runs from 19th-23rd of March 2014.
What visitors can expect from this fair is a theme park concept exhibition with over 60,000 square feet of space. Visitors of the fair will be transported into a magical book town called the â€œBOOKERVILLEâ€. The best part of it? They’re not just excess books. That means the authors will get some royalty from the book sale. 😀
The book fair is aimed to provide an enriching, educational and entertaining environment to visitors.
This book fair will feature more than 5 million worth of books offered at attractive prices in two exhibition halls. Here’s what you can expect from the Putrajaya International Book Fair- Bookerville:
Besides that, the fair will comprise of books, magazine, e-books, educational aids, stationery, digital and IT devices, toy and gifts.
