Filipino Book Bloggers At Libreria, Cubao X (Part 1)






The Filipino Book Bloggers whom I met last September got together again yesterday at a small, cozy bookstore named Libreira in Cubao X (the former Marikina Shoe Expo). It was a wonderful afternoon talking books and reading-related matter over coffee. I really enjoy the company of fellow-readers, and in a setting that is so appropriate: a small, independent bookstore. The love of reading is what binds us together, and frankly, I do hope that in the future, there'll be more of us.

Check out these links by some of the bloggers for excellent recaps of what we talked about as well as for pictures of the store.

Chachic is planning a get-together in the first quarter of 2011, possibly at Libreria again. Here's hoping more folks can make it, and new readers will also join in.

Our deep thanks to Triccie Cantero, proprietor of Libreria, for letting us stay at her store!

More pics of the get-together in the immediately succeeding posts. :)

Hey Kenneth, thank you so much for attending and for sponsoring our coffee. :) Also for the copy of Philippine Genre Stories that you gave us. I really enjoyed meeting up with you guys and I'm quite surprised at the variety of topics that we were able to discuss.

Hopefully, next time, I won't be late.

Thanks for the coffee, Kenneth! :)

Hi, Kenneth. Thanks again for the coffee! The coffee completed the day filled with good books, people, and conversation. We'll see how we can get the word out to other bloggers and readers out there about this awesome indie bookshop in Cubao Expo.

I'm looking forward to your Filipino Friday discussion.
