Giveaways!

Did Someone Say, "Free Books"?!?!?

Every June, Shredded Cheddar offers one lucky international reader the chance to win a book by a Filipino author. This means a reader who lives someplace in the world where he can't just walk to a bookstore and buy a copy of one of the books featured on this page. (That is, a reader who is not in the Philippines. I hope you understand.)

Since the only thing more fun than getting a book as a prize is giving a book as a prize, I really hope you will make my month by entering this giveaway through the Rafflecopter. =) Thanks so much! And good luck!

By Sword and by fire...

I like books and since I am a Filipino too, I also wanted to read books that is written by a Filipino author.

World war II. Any genre will do but i usually want to read books that has sense. I like history and even fiction. Knowing and learning new things gives me satisfaction.
