March Meet Up

Hi everyone! I had fun seeing those who were able to attend the Flips Flipping Pages Best and Worst Reads meet up in Libreria. The Flippers/bloggers who were there were Gege, Honey, Michelle, Blooey and Peter. Some of the Filipino Book Bloggers who were able to attend were Tarie, Paolo, Tina, Aaron and Jayson. All of us shared our best and worst book read in 2010 and there was a book swap after. I’m sure all of us had a lot of fun so thanks again to the Flippers for inviting us. 🙂

We were thinking that it would be a good idea to replicate the book swap on our next meet up. The rules of the book swap are similar to the white elephant gift exchange. We have to set some rules though, mainly that the book that each blogger would bring should be a recommended read, preferably a favorite. This would make the swap more intense and would ensure that each person will go home with a good book. Also, each blogger will be required to write a review of the book that he or she grabs (no deadline though so you can write the review whenever you want) because we all know this would make the giver a lot happier. How does that sound? Not everyone is required to join though so just bring a book if you want to join the swap. I’ve heard that February is going to be a busy month for a lot of people so March seems like a good time to have our next meet up. How does March 12 or March 19 sound? I hope we see some new faces in the next meet up, don’t be shy, we don’t bite. 😀

    As newcomer, I’m excited for a meetup in March. Either of the two dates are fine for me. 🙂

    I’ll be out of the country on March 12 so March 19 is better for me. I haven’t attend any meet-up yet and I’m missing a lot already. Hope to join the upcoming meet up.
