Today is the last day of 2018. I thought of writing a retrospect blog post, but I’m too lazy to do that…for now. Instead, I’m going to share with you all the books I’ve read this year.
2018 was a busy year for me. Too much was going on – in my career, personal, and blogging life. I was juggling so many things that it became difficult for me to keep up with my mountain of TBR pile.
And to make things worse, I suffered a terrible reading slump for most part of the year. It wasn’t until September that I managed to finally pick up a book, and from then on I just fired up and kept reading. Surprisingly, I successfully surpassed my 2018 reading challenge by the end of December, in less than four months, at that.
I managed to read 17 books this year, although admittedly, most of the books I picked up were re-reads. I’ll explain more about that later.
Here’s a little summary of all the books I’ve read in 2018:
Books are becoming more and more expensive these days. Every time I enter a bookstore, I often catch myself shaking my head and debating about whether or not it’s wise to spend 800-pesos for a newly released title. In the next few years, there will be more books with prices too high that only a select few can afford, reading might soon become a dying habit. Can you smell the irony?
Thankfully, there are plenty of Good Samaritans out there who are committed to making books accessible and affordable for everyone, just like the Big Bad Wolf Book Sale.
The Wolf is Coming
Mr. Wolf is coming not to blow off your houses, but to offer his books at super low prices. The biggest book sale in the world is on its way to Davao City, bringing a million books with a variety of genres at 50%-90% discounts. There’s a good variety of books by popular authors, novels, science fiction, business books, biographies, art and design, architecture and more!
The 24-hour book sale will be in town from November 23 to December 2, 2018. It will be held at The Tent at Azuela Cove, Davao City.
Lucky for me, I get to go to the VIP preview and marvel at all the books a day early. =)
