I love Read Philippines because I get to meet other book lovers like me! It's great that we have this website because I used to think that I was alone in my love for books, and then I saw thi site! Oh, and I love the virtual library! haha! I love you all my friends here!
HONEY CARMONA of SAN JUAN I like Read Philippines because my friend invited me to join and I love to talk about the books I'm reading and to discover new books from other members here! and i love getting all the SALE schedules of the diff bookstores! hehe
I like Read Philippines because they yearly have this fair which readers like me, love of. And also that they encourage more teenagers to read books which is today's lack. Because we all know that today's generation just copy-paste information in the internet which they never tried to read. So I will be lucky enough to share my opinion and also looking forward to visit the fair. Thanks
Th reason why I love ReadPhilippines so much is that it allows readers from all over the Philippines and other Filipinos outside the country, to interact and communicate with each other. I think ReadPhilippines is quite a big help for citizens of the Philippines. Most kids nowadays forget their books and focus only on toys. ReadPhilippines helps this country by emphasizing the importance of reading. Another amazing feature of this site is that it helps readers, who are often looked down as uncool, nerdy, and boring people, to meet people with the same liking as they have for books. Thus making them feel that they are not alone.
ERIELE JAPSAY of MARILAO, BULACAN. I loooove Read Philippines because I`m able to stalk booklovers and read more opinions about books. Even if I`m always lurking, I still read loads of posts, and I guess I could call this a "home" site because this is somewhere I could really relate with.
I like Read Philippines because it lets me enter a transitory world; a sort of "lobby" that I can get to chat with fellow book enthusiasts before we set off on an entirely different world brought about by the books we have chosen to read
