The Filipino Readers’ Choice Awards returns for its third year, engaging the Filipino reading public in honoring their favorite Philippine-published titles. An initiative of the Filipino Book Bloggers Group, the Filipino Readers’ Choice Awards debuted at the 2nd Filipino Reader Conference in 2012, and was established to develop awareness and appreciation of Philippine literature, recognize the reader’s role in creating the meaning and experience of a literary work, and give the readers a voice in the Philippine book industry.In past blog posts about the FRCA, I encouraged librarians to take part in this online reading campaign by looking at the list of books that readers nominate in the awards; check their collection if they have the titles posted online; consider acquiring the titles; and reading the ones they find interesting.
This year, I am most keen at inviting librarian friends to vote for my book, Dear Nanay (Lampara Books, 2014), if they have read it and liked it. This is a first for me and yes, I will not deny it, I am thrilled to the bone for the book to be nominated in the Children's Picture Book category. So, if you haven't read Dear Nanay yet, I hope you can get a copy. Read it and if you like it, go to this FRCA Voting page.
Thank you in advance!
