Every year, the Manila International Book Fair sees long queues and crowded aisles as book lovers from all over the Metro (and even nearby provinces) fill their carts with stacks of books. In January, it was announced that this year's edition will run from September 16 to 20 at the SMX Convention Center Manila in Pasay City. Large gatherings have yet to be allowed because of the COVID-19 pandemic, but don't fret, bookworms! The 2020 edition of the fair will push through online, according to an announcement made on their official Facebook account today, August 15.

From November 24 to 30, you can find participating publishers and bookstores online for the Manila International Online Book Fair at www.manilabookfair.com. There's no word yet on how many exhibitors are joining virtually, but it's sure to be another reason to save up and spend on books we'll probably be reading until 2021.
