June Giveaway 2014!

a Rafflecopter giveaway


As you may be aware, the June Giveaway for you doubles as a reading challenge for me. My goal is to read read six books by Filipino authors and to blog about them so that the winner has a good idea of which book he'd like me to send him. This is the fifth year I've been doing this, so there are already twenty-four books in the Giveaway pool.

The easiest way to get a Rafflecopter entry is to tell me which book you are most interested in, so go through the pool, read old posts if you want more information, and claim an entry as soon as you can! Then keep watching the Rafflecopter on the Giveaways page (or at the end of all new reviews and related posts) because I'll be adding other ways to rack up entries all throughout June. Best of luck to everyone! I hope that you'll all have as much fun as I will. =)

I have no idea what book I'd like to win. I'll have to think about it and come back. LOL Thanks for the giveaway!

You have all month to make up your mind, Carmel! =) Well, maybe a little longer than one month, because I just checked the schedule of one series that I want to tie to the giveaway, and it will take up a bit of July as well!

I AM ENTERING THIS (because I can do it guilt free, probably)

My choice is "May Day Eve" and Other Stories by Nick Joaquin but I reserve the right to change it at the last minute :)

Hey, thanks for the latest Joaquin short, very enjoyable. However, I think you missed a page or two somewhere between pics 10 and 11 (after the image of Porculus and Lechonito, the next page starts mid sentence). By the way, any info on who did the illustrations? I love them.

Also, on the very last page you can see through to the other side, an image that wasn't shown in the previous pic. Did you short me a picture too? :)

Would you believe that I haven't even read the story myself? =P Well, no more than I had to read to make sure the pages were in the right order. I can't believe I missed one, though! Anyway, I really do save "Tito Nick" until the end of the month. LOL! But the missing pages are now there.

The illustrations are by Beth Parrocha. =)

Sweet! Thanks ma'am!

Just looked around for Beth Parrocha's illustrations, don't like her cotton-candyish style. I wonder why they are so different for this book.

Enbrethiliel said...

I didn't recognise her style in Lechonito, either, and I've very familiar with some of the children's books she illustrated! Maybe she varies her style depending on the author, the genre and/or the publisher--all of which are different in this case from what she usually has to work with.

Then again . . . I've just flipped through the book. A lot of the drawings for the other stories look like her usual style, but all her animals are still like Lechonito. Maybe that's the key.

It's awesome that you promote Filipino books like this. I wouldn't know what book I would prefer though, I'll have to browse your reviews some more for that :D
