Four!

#FridayReads 2014

It’s my blog’s fourth birthday! To celebrate, I created a grid of my year in #FridayReads. Out of the 37 books that I read last year, I only missed three books for this … hobby. If you are curious, the books that I missed are The Bibliophile’s Devotional (a year-long read), Dwellers (borrowed), and Twisted 8 (borrowed).

Let’s further celebrate this day with … a contest. As usual, there is a prize. The winner for this year’s bloggy birthday giveaway will receive a book of his or her choice that is worth at most Php 1,000.00 (for local books) or USD 20.00 (for Book Depository). So what’s the contest?

In August, I will be moderating our science fiction book club discussion. I already have three titles in mind. I just finished typing them on my phone’s note app and took a screenshot of it as a proof. So, if you can guess any of the three books that I have selected, you stand a chance of winning. The participant who has the most number of correct guesses wins. In case of ties, the person who posted the earliest wins.

So hurry up! You can post up to ten guesses in the comments section below. Deadline is four days from now, which is on January 11, Sunday, 11:59 PM. If nobody guesses any of the titles, I guess I’ll just use the prize money for myself, tee-hee!

Your interactions with me through my bookish posts keep this blog alive. So thank you, thank you so much!

  1. I’m an absolute noob when it comes to science fiction, so I’d only bet on the mainstream titles I know thus far:

    George Orwell’s 1984? Ender’s Game? Kurt Vonnegut’s Slaughter House-Five?

    Congrats on four years of bookblogging! Here’s to many more years of awesome reads!
