FBB Invades FFP’s Best and Worst Meet Up

20 Comments

Thank you to the folks of Flips Flipping Pages for inviting the Filipino Book Bloggers to take part in their Best and Worst 2010 Reads event held at Libreria in Cubao X. I won’t be able to name all of the attendees because there were so many of us. The afternoon started off with food, of course, then we all trooped to the bookstore. I was actually surprised that we all fit inside Libreria and that we were able to discuss all of our best and worst reads in a reasonable amount of time. Each person had one minute to say something about the best and worst book that he or she read in 2010. Some of the choices were surprising, some were not but overall, it was interesting to see what appealed to other readers and why. After the sharing, there was a book swap, which was a lot of fun and something that I hope to recreate in the next Filipino Book Bloggers’ meet up. Overall, a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon. I think it’s always a good thing when I get to talk about books with other people. πŸ™‚

Here’s a group pic that I grabbed from Rhett:

  4. Really glad you enjoyed it, Chachic. Feel free to join us again next time!

  5. Seems like you had fun! Great pic πŸ™‚

  6. You guys even had a poster too! Sounds like an incredibly fun afternoon. πŸ™‚ It must be interesting to sit through that discussion — someone’s worst read could easily be someone else’s best! I think a lot of books can really be polarizing so it must have been nice to see where everyone else was coming from.

    • Chris, the FFP came up with the poster and all the other materials. The book bloggers just “crashed” their meet up. All of the FFP events are very well-organized so I hope you get to attend at least one of them.

      Yes, that did actually happen! Someone’s worst was actually someone’s best. πŸ˜› Well, we all know that different books appeal to different people.

  7. That’s a lot of readers! Sounds so fun, I wish there was something like that near me.

    • I know! I think it’s great that so many readers are based here in Manila. It shouldn’t be surprising based on the number of bookstores that we have. You don’t have a lot of book bloggers or book clubs in your area?

  8. Now I really wish I was able to attend last Saturday. 😦

    But yay for you guys having a great time! πŸ™‚
