KLIBF but Not Glib!

The Kuala Lumpur International Book fair opens today and and runs until 6 May at Putra World Trade Centre. This is the 26th year of the event which aims to exhibit latest local and international publications, and serve as a meeting point for publishers, book traders and readers.

The event is served this year by an extremely well-designed website. Go check it out ... and maybe see you there?

If you need any further inducement, Pay Less books has a booth and will be offering generous discounts!

We know that the organisers have their fingers on the pulse as the website declares: "Be welcomed by a multicultural society. Here, you will discover a delightful fusion of three main races-Malay, Chinese and Indian."

Naff poster. those books don't look interesting at all -- hahaha 'The Malaysian Bureaucracy'

I went last year and only bought an atlas. A few years ago it was a dictionary set. I don't remember why, but I think the book fair is just disappointing.

but of course, there is always the 'tempting array of exotic Asian cuisine and culture'...

amir - what are the twin towers for if not to appear on posters??

i think i may make the trip. i was there running a workshop for OUP a couple of years back and i bought a brilliant book on writing poetry. i might just go for the gossip!
