In celebration of the World Book and Copyright Day and the National Literature Month last April, the National Book Development Board (NBDB) launched the Book Stop Map project as part of its “Book Fiesta,” a month-long celebration of our local books.

This month, through the Manila International Book Fair (MIBF), the NBDB will be giving away free printed copies of the Manila City book stop map to anyone dropping by their booth. According to the NBDB, the book stop map initiative aims to “encourage the public to include bookstores in their shopping and recreation itinerary.” 

The book stop map is divided into five categories: branches of National Book Stores, book sales, Rex bookstores, Philippine Christian bookstore, and other bookstores in Manila. 

MIBF will run from Sept. 11 to 15 at the SMX Convention Center, Mall of Asia Complex, Pasay.
