We’re counting down the hours till United We Read: The 2nd Filipino ReaderCon! Are you excited? We’re accepting pre-registrations until 12:00 noon today, so if you haven’t pre-registered yet, make sure you do so you can reserve your slot! :)
Make sure you check the program so you know what’s going to happen for the day. It would also help to check the descriptions of each panel so you know which one to sign up for by tomorrow. If you want to get to know the speakers, too, they have their own page here. Don’t forget to choose which book discussions you want to attend to in the afternoon, too — the host book clubs will be discussing the following: Pacific Rims by Rafe Bartholomew (c/o Flips Flipping Pages), Smaller and Smaller Circles by F.H. Batacan (c/o DLSU LitCircle), Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James (c/o The Mysterious Reading Society) and The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery (c/o Goodreads – The Filipino Group).
And finally, if you’d like to clear some shelf space too and help Filipinas Heritage Library build libraries in the country, just bring age-appropriate books and bring them to the FHL Book Donation Program table on Saturday. :)
Okay now that those are done (all the reminders for tomorrow will be in a later post!), let’s proceed to the last ReaderCon Filipino Friday. Last week was a lovely time to celebrate the friendships we formed because of books. This week, we’ll focus on the books that formed those friendships. Let’s talk about the books that we discovered and loved so far this year:
August 17 – Celebrating the Best. In honor of the first Filipino Readers’ Choice Awards, let’s talk about our favorites for this year. What are your favorite books in 2012 so far? Have you read any awesome Filipino books in the year? If yes, make sure to include them in your list!
