Get Free (e)Books for Your Old Tree Books!

MIBF2015_ABookForAnEbook

Okay guys, here are the official details—as I mentioned in my previous poetic post, you can get a free ebook storybundle for any fiction/biography tree book (that’s regular books, y’all). Remember to ask for the #StrangeLit bundles, where my short story about a girl, earthquakes, and mysterious strangers can be found!

Or, if you’re not into that kind of thing, you can find other stories and other genres too—Romance, YA, and more!

You can learn more about this project via the Official #ABookForAnEBook post on the Buqo blog.

Seriously, this is an AWESOME initiative. The books you donate will be given to libraries (thus spreading more readable joy to more people), and you get more stuff to read for FREE. It’s a win-win sitch!

So if you’re in Manila from September 16-20, 2015, don’t hesitate to drop off those tree books in exchange for ebooks. Who knows? You might discover your new favorite stories there. 🙂

Cheers, you guys!

So pick an organization, and do something.

And if I could get even just *one* person to donate because of this post, then this post was worth it.

Fuck all that talk about the “indomitable Filipino spirit”, that’s bullshit we say to make ourselves feel better and you KNOW it. This isn’t the time for rhetoric and feel-good speeches, it’s the time for action. We say that we care so much about our fellowmen on social media – now’s the time to step up and PROVE it in real life.

Here’s a compilation of all the links I see popping up on…
