Book Blogger Hop: Audio Books

I thought I needed a break from all the reviews I’ve been posting. I have two already, so if you’re interested click here. Enough rambling, and let’s get to business!

This week’s question is:

Do you listen to audio books?

Uhm, no. And there are two reasons why I don’t listen to audio books:

1.) Availability

Living in the Philippines, we don’t get that much access to books–much more audio books. We only have about three major bookstore, which is National Bookstore, Fully Booked and Powerbooks.

Happenings: Manila International Book Fair

IMG_2136There she is! This is my first MIBF (Manila International Book Fair)! I know, what took me so long? I know that this kind of event exists, it’s just that I don’t know WHEN. People come up to me and tell me, right after it ends. Such a tragedy.

I provided pictures for you guys! I went with my sister, Odelia of Random Book Blogger, we went crazy! Book haul will be up soon! And btw, we went there on the first day, September 17, mainly because it was Odelia’s birthday! (And because we had to, or else there’ll be none left)

We only went to two stores, which are Fully Booked and National Bookstore. We didn’t have enough time since we went there about 6:30 and it closes around 8:00, so we were running our feet off! (Especially Odelia)
