Today Squeaky Books welcomes Chachic from Chachic's Book Nook. Chachic is a wicked-sweet blogger from the Philippines! TODAY she is hosting a giveaway of any UK Shannon Hale book! Go check it out here. In the meantime, Chachic talks about her last birthday, and the differences between cultures.
Also, we have this thing here in the Philippines where you treat your friends for your birthday. I know it's different in the States because my cousins told me that friends pay for the birthday girl/boy's meal when they go out. So because the birthday person treats the group, it's customary to give gifts. This year, some of my friends requested that I come up with a wishlist and post it on my blog. Of course my list had more books it in that anything else! I received 14 books as gifts as a result of that list. Also, some of girlfriends gave me a box of used books! That's the most number of books that I ever got for my birthday. It made me so happy.
I chose to talk about the book-related aspect of my birthday because this is the year that I started a book blog so I thought it's very appropriate. Aside from these books, I'm also thankful for a lot of things. I have my friends and family, a job, a roof over my head, money to buy good food and books. It hasn’t been smooth sailing all throughout but I’d like to think that the good things outweigh the bad. :)
Thanks Chacchic! Now y'all should head over to her blog to win one of the BEAUTIFUL UK Paperbacks of Shannon Hale's YA book!
