Filipino book bloggers and readers, come say hi!
WHAT: BOOKWORMS UNITE!: A PH Book Bloggers and Readers Meet Up
WHEN: July 26th, Sunday, 1:00p.m.-4:00p.m.
WHERE: Book and Borders Café, 281 Tomas Morato, Diliman, Quezon City
Together with some of my fellow Filipino bloggers, who are super lovely btw, we’re hosting a blogger/reader meet up by the end of this month and WE WANT YOU TO COME AND HANG OUT! There’ll be bookish games and raffle prizes (I heard HarperCollins is involved but SHHH!), among other things, but the real highlight would be for our very active community to just have an afternoon together, surrounded with books (and coffee). RSVP HERE.
I cannot promise I wouldn’t be awkward in person—because, duh, as Melanie of YA Midnight Reads proclaimed, “awkward is forever”—but if you do show up, it’ll be awesome.
And oh! We also have an optional Book Blind Date. It’s quite simple: bring a book covered in a non-transparent material (gift wrapper, cartolina, magazine, old newspaper, etc.). On the front, it should include keywords that describe the work. All books will be collected upon registration and by the end of the meet up, you’ll pick another, based on the descriptions others have provided. Please be noted, however, that ONLY the attendees who brought a book(s) can pick another book(s), and the number of books you can acquire will be equivalent to the number of books you bring.
So. Will I see you on Sunday?
