This is my first time to join the Filipino Fridays meme though I’d been to last year’s Filipino ReaderCon. Filipino Friday, is a weekly meme leading to the Filipino ReaderCon that encourages participation of the Filipino readers everywhere. Anyone can join this meme. All of you have to do is write a post about this week’s topic on your blog or social networking account and that’s it!

What were your favorite books as a kid? Do you still read children’s books? If you would give a book to your younger self, what would it be?
I started with the Wakefield twins! I was in second grade when I started reading Sweet Valley Series. I also loved Goosebumps. Those were the constant books I borrow from our school library.

I rarely read children’s books nowadays. If I’m not mistaken the last children’s book I read was The Little Prince and that was last year.
I would give my younger self classic books to read. I started with mainstream books and I never outgrew it. If maybe I was used to reading classics as a kid, I would probably be a diverse reader and would enjoy reading difficult books.
The 3rd Filipino ReaderCon will be held on November 9 at the Rizal Library in Ateneo De Manila University. I’m sure it’s going to be a blast! See you there!
