But you know what’s more exciting? Before we even had this post up, we already received 400+ votes on the first day alone! Intense! :) We’re seeing very interesting results, and right now we don’t know who’ll make it to the top 3 for each category.
So, this is your time to really promote your favorite books among the nominees. Vote, spread the word, tell anyone you know who’s read them and tell them to vote for it! Tweet about it, post it on Facebook or blog about it! These votes could push your favorite books to the top places, and have the chance to be awarded as one of the first winners in the first ever Filipino Readers’ Choice Awards. :) The awarding ceremony will be held during the United We Read: The 2nd Filipino Readers Conference on August 18, 2012 at the Filipinas Heritage Library.
We’ll be posting something about (summaries, reviews) on the nominated books soon on this site, so if you’re still undecided for some categories, check back here in the next few days. We also encourage you to pick up some of the books in the list for you to read them — I’ve already added several in my wish list and I can’t wait to find out why people nominated these books. :)
Voting period will be until July 31, 2012, so there’s lots of time to tell your friends and vote! Only one vote per category per email address is allowed, multiple votes will be disqualified. For questions, you may send an email to filipinoreaderschoice(at)gmail.com.
