#FreeComicBookDay2017 BayanBeasties Yearly Camp-Out for our Favorite Comics

Hello Sweeties!

My beasties and I have made it our yearly tradition to line up at the Bonifacio High Street branch of Fullybøoked every year since 2015 for the Free Comicbook Day.  It is not really about “Free” comics, but mostly it is about hanging out together and enjoying some of the titles offered. I found that the “free” ones are a great way to browse new titles.

As early as two days before the actually event people started camping out. In the past years Fullybooked and Comix Odyssey offered early birds freebies, as in the copies of all the free comics offered that year to the first three people in line. I don’t think they have it this year but still I see post of people lining up.

My kids and I woke up at around 5am and Ubered our way to Bonifacio High Street and were there past 6am a crowd of people have pooled themselves there already.

We came earlier this year, the beasties were looking forward to the activity. A staff of Fullybooked BHS  was there manning the end of the line to give out tickets like last year.

The heat was scotching! Good thing, the beasties and I had our umbrellas and the battery operated fan handy or we could not have survived!

Dragon Unboxing: Reader’s Digest Kasaysayan History of the Philippines

Kasaysayan 4

Hello Sweeties!

As a small child, I often lose myself inside my Grandparent`s library. No matter how scary or dark the 2nd floor was, I would often brave going there in thew middle of the hot afternoon to browse at books. I must admit, I love looking at the colorful photos. In a way this was the beginning of my love for books.

My beastie Raffy will be turning 17 this year. I am so happy that she is grew up loving reading as much as I do. That is why when the Reader`s Digest Kasaysayan went on sale at Fullybooked branches I just have to have a set.

10 Volume Collection from 6,000php to just 1898php from June 3- July 3

10 Volume Collection from 6,000php to just 1898php from June 3- July 3 in selected branches of Fullybooked

Raffy enjoys reading about History. Although there are a lot of books e-books on-line, I find that the weight, scent and the feel of actual books are way better than the ones I find on line.

I personally went to Fullybooked TriNoma to reserve a copy. It seems A LOT of people were ordering the set. To secure a copy, I needed to deposit 50% of the book`s price. I willingly did so. I mean look at the price! It is a steal!
