TIBE (Taipei International Book Exhibition)

After that crowded affair at TGS, books are the thing to make me feel better.

My sister and I met up at Eslite in Taipei City Hall and headed to the TWTC (Taipei World Trade Center?), where TIBE was held.

On the way there, we saw cherry blossoms. The sight of cherry blossoms and the warm weather makes me happy :).

TIBE sign. The exhibition spans 3 halls, the first is General Books, the second is Comics, while the third is Children’s Book.

A cute stall decorated like a Taiwanese train station.

A lot of authors and illustrators were there for book signing events.

Jimi was there, but we missed him by maybe three hours.

At the end of the day, a book fair is about buying books. So a picture of our loot:

We got 5 pocket books for only 300 NT, four picture sticker books for only 99 NT, 5 Chinese picture books for only 10 NT each…! Really, just take our money…

I love book fairs.
