The first ever Filipino ReaderCon was held last September 14 during the Manila International Book Fair. If you were able to attend, please drop by the ReaderCon website to give feedback. For those who weren’t able to go, there are audio and video files that you can check out to find out what happened during the event. Again, feel free to drop by the Filipino ReaderCon website for the video links.
Audio files were uploaded by Charles Tan in his blog:
- Keynote Speech: No Line on the Horizon: The Merging of Readers and Writers through Social Media by Carljoe Javier
- Putting Up and Running a Book Club–For the Fun of It! by Gege Sugue, Jayson Vega, and Tata Francisco
- The Why and How of Book Blogging by Tarie Sabido, Charles Tan, Chachic Fernandez, Aldrin Calimlim, and Sasha Martinez.
Please listen to the audio files or watch the videos if you want to learn more about book clubs and book blogging here in the Philippines. I’m embedding the first video for the book blogger panel here:
I initially didn’t want to post this, I don’t know why but watching myself on video makes me cringe (ever wonder why I’ve never posted vlogs here?). However, promoting the ReaderCon and Filipino readers in general is always a good thing. 🙂 So enjoy and please leave a comment to let me know what you guys think.
