Hi Guys! It's Luigi! Sorry I haven't been active for a while.

Anyways, I know a lot of you might ask why I used the Center/Middle Alignment...

Here's why, We'll use the Center/Middle Alignment during BOOK NEWS!

Special Topics in Book News are those that does not happen everyday.

Usually we'll talk about book signings, book events, and many more.

We all now that National Book Store has brought many authors here in the Philippines.

And now they're bringing three awesome authors in the Philippines again!

The first one is sir Alex London.

He is the author of the books Proxy and Guardian.

About Proxy
Knox was born into one of the City's wealthiest families. A Patron, he has everything a boy could possibly want—the latest tech, the coolest clothes, and a Proxy to take all his punishments. When Knox breaks a vase, Syd is beaten. When Knox plays a practical joke, Syd is forced to haul rocks. And when Knox crashes a car, killing one of his friends, Syd is branded and sentenced to death.

Syd is a Proxy. His life is not his own.

Then again, neither is Knox’s. Knox and Syd have more in common than either would guess. So when Knox and Syd realize that the only way to beat the system is to save each other, they flee. Yet Knox’s father is no ordinary Patron, and Syd is no ordinary Proxy. The ensuing cross-country chase will uncover a secret society of rebels, test both boys’ resolve, and shine a blinding light onto a world of those who owe and those who pay. Some debts, it turns out, cannot be repaid.

A fast-paced, thrill-ride of novel full of non-stop action, heart-hammering suspense and true friendship—just as moving as it is exhilarating. Fans of Anthony Horowitz's Alex Rider series, James Dashner's Maze Runner, Patrick Ness's Chaos Walking series, and Marie Lu's Legend will be swept away by this story.

About Guardian
In the new world led by the Rebooters, former Proxy Syd is the figurehead of the Revolution, beloved by some and hated by others. Liam, a seventeen-year-old Rebooter, is Syd’s bodyguard and must protect him with his life. But armed Machinists aren’t the only danger.

People are falling ill—their veins show through their skin, they find it hard to speak, and sores erupt all over their bodies. Guardians, the violent enforcers of the old system, are hit first, and the government does nothing to help. The old elites fall next, and in the face of an indifferent government, Syd decides it’s up to him to find a cure . . . and what he discovers leaves him stunned.

This heart-stopping thriller is packed with action, adventure, and heroics. Guardian will leave you breathless until the final page.

A fast-paced, thrill-ride of novel full of non-stop action, heart-hammering suspense and true friendship—just as moving as it is exhilarating. Fans of Anthony Horowitz's Alex Rider series, James Dashner's Maze Runner, Patrick Ness's Chaos Walking series, and Marie Lu's Legend trilogy will be swept away by this story.

Hi Guys! It's weekends! Ofcourse, "Featured Bookstore" day!

Today, we'll have an awesome shop!

Non other than...


@ardentbookgeek !

Ardentbookgeek is an awesome IG book shop who has 6064 followers! 

(C) owner. @ardentbookgeek 's official IG Account. 

Samantha Ezra Lopez is the Owner of @ardentbookgeek .

I have not yet bought anything from her, but I'm sure she's legit.


Because I won a Giveaway from her shop! I won 11 different books from her!

(C) Owner. Books I personally received and won from @ardentbookgeek 's first ever giveaway.

I have asked her if she's available for interview and she allowed us! What a nice girl/lady/bookseller/etc. HAHAHA!

And here's how our interview was:

"Why did you sell books?" I started.

"I bought a 39 clues set online a year ago and it made me really happy. I decided to sell books after that because I wanted to buy a delirium set and that is actually the main reason in all this. Hahaha" she replied.

"HAHAHA. Why did you chose IG Shop instead of Sulit?" I asked.

"Hehe don't laugh at meeee :-) I chose Instagram because it's more accessible and more sosyal looking haha just kidding." She replied.

"Hahahaha. At first, were you hesitating to continue selling books? If yes or no, why?"

"I wont really use the word hesitate... I got into this business headfirst, I definitely did not hesitate, but I get scared sometimes because I'm really worried of getting a bad feedback. That's my only worry because I'm really scared of people that's why I'm really careful in doing transactions Hahaha"

"What do you think is the reason why you're shop has been receiving positive feedbacks based on your posts?"

"I'm not sure... Maybe it's just the idea of waking up and finding a parcel right in front of your doorstep containing books. What can I say, books make bookworms happy. I don't know really, I'm just glad they like it :-)" she replied.

"Hahaha. What do you love most about selling books?" I asked.

"I love that I love what I'm selling and that I get to hold them first before giving them to their new owner. It's like bestowing a gift to a friend. 💛"

"What do you hate most about selling books?"

Saturday, August 2, 2014


Hi Guys! It's Saturday, the first day in a weekend! Today we'll have "Book Stores" to talk about to, interview, and many more!

Book Stores are very very very very important to us readers! There are Book Stores located on our provinces, cities, countries, etc. and those stores that can be seen in Social Medias such as Instagram, Facebook, etc.

Today we'll talk about and have @booktologyph - a bookshop that has 2315 followers on Instagram ( instagram.com/booktologyph ) and  has 925 likes on her Facebook page ( https://www.facebook.com/booktologyph ).

(c) Owner. The official Facebook Page and Instagram Account of @booktologyph

Janine Carlos ( https://www.facebook.com/janine.carlos.9?fref=ts ) is the owner of the Booktologyph.

I haven't bought anything from her yet, but she has been receiving many positive feedbacks from here previous buyers.

(c) Booktologyph. Feedbacks given by her buyers.

Booktologyph sells books available and NOT AVAILABLE IN THE PHILIPPINES!

of course, i had an interview with her.

"What pushed you to sell books?" I asked.

"Hi. I was actually not planning on selling books.. I was only trying to get rid of my preloved books to make room for new ones.. But then a friend of mine plugged my ig acct to her 5k followers claiming I was selling books not here in the Philippines.. So I was not really planning it.. It just happened :$ And I decided to push through with it since my passion for reading books will surely be a plus  and I've gained A LOT of new friends thru this business " she replied.

"Why did you choose IG accounts for your shop instead of sulit?"

"i chose IG because its easy to handle/communicate with MOST of my clients have 2-3 ig accounts   Its very easy to manipulate and easy to post pictures  And to reach millions of people with just one click and hashtag " she replied.

"At first, were you hesitating to continue selling books on IG?"

"yes. Because I know I can't handle THAT BIG OF A RESPONSIBILITY on top of my Thesis and practicum I don't want to be branded as a bogus seller just because I can't deliver.  so I'm really trying my best to balance everything out." She replied.

"What do you think is the reason why you're shop has been receiving positive feedbacks based on your posts?"

"Well.. I think its because of the way I talk to people.. i know i may not see them personally but the way i communicate with them makes them see me as a very trustworthy person and not as a seller but as their LONG TIME FRIEND  that's my secret  (well not anymore) hahaha I treat my customers as my friends not clients " she honestly replied!

"Hahaha. What do you love most about selling books?" I asked.

"the touching the books I can never own part. hahaha whenever someone orders a special collectors edition or signed book OMG i dieeee when they get delivered to my house. I WANNA KIDNAP THEM. hahaha" she replied.

"Hahahahaha. What do you hate most about selling books?" I asked.

"THE IMPATIENT part. I just wanna bang my head 12u932749719371973 times against the wall whenever a buyer is IMPATIENT i mean i get the stocks from the USA not around the block. and especially if they are sooooooooo impatient with getting their books but TOO SLOW TO PAY.. I mean what am I supposed to do? pay for them? OMG I am ranting. hahaha"

"If you will convice a friend of yours to sell books like what you do, what will you tell him or her to convince him or her?"

"Nothing.. Honestly I don't like my friends being my "enemies" competition hahaha. They have to get their own business idea.. or better JOIN FORCES with me " she replied.

"Hahahahaha. What do you think makes you unique from the other shops?" I asked.

"the "FUN"ness.. The quirk I give out.. The attitude I portray when I talk to my customers. I respond in every way CALLS, TEXT, VIBE, IG COMMENT, FB COMMENT, FB messages NON- STOP.. sometimes til 3 if my eyes permits." She responded.

"Have you received negative feedbacks before? How do you handle it?" I asked.

"none yet. THANK GOD.  oh wait I had an encounter with a BOGUS BUYER so i dont think she counts. Since she was the one who bogused buy me " she responded.

"How did you manage all the hard work being a book seller?" I asked.

"NO SLEEP. joke. mmmmmmm lots of patience for answering inquiries. I mean I work with kids so I'm used to repetitive questions. " she replied.

"Oh. If you can change a thing with your shop what would it be? And why?" I asked.

"More attention to my FB page.. GET A FREAKING PARTNER coz I can't handle everything alone.. It really drives me crazy." She replied.

"Haha! Here's my last question, if you could bring three books (you, being a reader) in an island, what would you bring?" I asked.

"Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma
Killing Sarai- Redmerski
Slammed- Hoover"

"And why?" I asked.

3. LIFE CHANGING" she replied.

"Thank you for being part of my blog! You'll be on my "Saturdays with Book Stores" segment." I ended.

"YAYYYY. Thanks and doncha worry!" She ended.

This interview's a long one! Hope you enjoy it!

Hi Guys! Sorry I wasn't able to post yesterday, I was sick.

So I'll post the Thursday and Friday post for today. Here's what will do during Thursdays, " Book Tags on Social Media! ". Here will talk about top book tags on different social medias such as Instagram. Many of you may now that many book tags have been a trending topic and many readers have been participating in such.

*Hi Readers! "Thursdays with Book Tags on Social Media" will now be part of the "Book Updates". See my latest post for more details!

and now we'll talk about one!

Today we'll have @flipages' ( instagram.com/flipages ) famous #seaofbooks book tag!

For me, it's like putting your books in a random order to make it look like a sea.

I haven't tried it yet because I'm not artisctic. So it requires me a lot of time to do it.

Don't worry once I have done it, I'll share it with you guys!

This is the first version of the sea of books made by the creator! (c) @flipages/IG

Ofcourse, I have interviewed the owner with some question for us!!

"Why did you decide to create the #seaofbooks book tag?" I started.

"Because i was bored with these book challenges, i mean they were only like "Favorite Books, favorite authors, signed books,etc" and i wanted something new and creative" @flipages responded.

"We're you scared at first that readers won't like the book tag that you have made? " I continued.

" Not really, i don't mean to be cocky but before i created the tag, i already posted a seaofbooks photo, and people said they liked it. But still, i was nervous. What if nobody does my tag? since i only had 400 followers back then. But then this popular account did my tag, she was the first one. And well you can say she helped me introducing my tag to others " they replied.

"What did you feel, when many readers did and loved the tag you've created?" I asked.

"I am so happy and all those good feelings. But i was so upset when i found out some people were kind of acting like it was their tag, like they created the tag, telling people to do it without giving a credit." They replied.

I would like to keep our conservation but they we're busy.

Hope you liked it guys!
