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.
