Filipino Friday (3):
"Did you participate in the Pinoy Book Drop? If yes:- First, kindly detail all the books that you have dropped, and where and when you dropped them.– Next: tell us all about your experience. How did you feel before and after you dropped the books? How did you choose the places where you dropped them? Did you check back and see if the books were still there? Do you have any idea who might have found them?"
- Blackberry Wine by Joanne Harris, dropped at Intramuros, Manila, October 23;
- Are You There Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea by Chelsea Handler, dropped at Star Mall Annex, Las Pinas, October 24.
I have to say that these past few days were pretty exciting. Dropping the book was one thing, but taking a photo was something else entirely. It involved a lot of cunning and subtlety. I chose random places, just some place I have to be on that day, but I have to make sure it's a spot with most human traffic. The Intramuros Wall is a lover's lane, while the latter is conveniently near a fast food restaurant and a grocery on the other side. I did check later. The books were gone, but, sadly, I have no clue as to who got them.
