Go on a Blind Date With a Local Book This Buwan ng Wika
It's the perfect kind of dating.
(SPOT.ph) With all the foreign books available in local bookstores, it's easy to get drowned in volumes of Palahniuk, Kundera, and Rowling and ignore works by Philippine authors. Who could miss a whole table stacked with all the editions of Kevin Kwan's Crazy Rich Asians? Or a whole shelf lined with coffee-table books from publishers abroad? This Buwan ng Wika, Fully Booked partners with MAD Travel to promote works by Filipino writers and books about Philippine culture through a blind book date. The promo runs until August 31 at Fully Booked, Bonifacio Global City.
It's just like an actual blind date where you have no idea who you're going out with, except maybe a few clues—what his/her overall vibe is, what's he/she is interested in (based on social media), and what your friends know about him/her. In this blind book date, you can purchase a fully wrapped book (book cover is hidden, of course) with only a vague description that's cool enough to get your attention. You also have the chance to win two tickets to MAD Travel's Tribes and Treks Zambales experience and other freebies. This event couldn't be more apt for a travel organization that's all for making a difference—MAD is shorthand for Make A Difference!
MAD Travel's blind book date runs until August 31 at Fully Booked in Bonifacio Global City, Bonifacio High Street, Taguig City. For more information, follow the Fully Booked x MAD Travel - Discover Local Stories events page on Facebook.
