Fully Booked gears up for the Manila International Book Fair 2023

MANILA, PHILIPPINES — After three years, Fully Booked has finally made it back to the longest-running and largest book fair in the Philippines.

This 2023, Fully Booked is excited to welcome readers to Fully Booked’s vibrant literary haven to provide an experience that’s sure to be one for the books.

So what can you expect from Fully Booked at the MIBF 2023? Here’s everything you need to know.


A massive booth you wouldn’t miss

Making up for lost time, Fully Booked is setting up the biggest booth at the 2023 edition of the fair, so big you could literally get lost in between shelves and stories. So, maybe bring a compass? (just kidding!)

The Fully Booked booth will be located in Hall 3 of the SMX Convention Center. Wear comfortable shoes and be ready to navigate row upon row of shelves filled with great reads.

Discover the newest, hot-off-the-press titles

Part of the thrill of reading is finding hidden gems even before they become big or land on the shelves of millions.

At Fully Booked’s MIBF booth, expect not only a wide selection of books, but also newly-released, hot-off-the-press, and straight-from-shipment titles. Titles like Holly, Miss Kim Knows, Girl in the Eagle’s Talons: A Lisbeth Salander Novel, and Tomb Sweeping: Stories are some of the books to get first dibs on, get cozy with, and immerse in with a cup of coffee or two.

Make sure to check these books out at our MIBF booth, stocks are limited.

Meet beauty queen and author Pia Wurtzbach

The multi-hyphenate beauty queen has done it again. This time, with a crown of a novel entitled Queen of the Universe.

Pia Wurtzbach’s book centers around Cleo, a family breadwinner and the estranged daughter of a well-known filmmaker. Cleo forays into the cutthroat industry of modeling and entertainment, where she discovers the hard compromise in exchange for fame and fortune.

Purchase a signed copy of Pia’s book on September 14 at Fully Booked’s booth at MIBF, for a chance to meet and greet and have a photo with her (for the first 200 copies only).
