Happy 75th Anniversary, National Book Store!
And to celebrate their anniversary, National Book Store is promoting reading and literacy in the country by the Read Out Loud Challenge! What is it, you ask?
With every 75 videos of people reading their favorite line/s from their favorite book/s posted on Instagram and/or Facebook, the National Book Store Foundation will help establish a library in public schools all over the Philippines!
Here I am doing the challenge and reading from Two Boys Kissing by David Levithan. I had this book tabbed with so many quotable passages that it was so hard to choose just one. And it’s just so apt for June because it’s Pride Month!
I hope you’ll do the challenge as well and help National Book Store build libraries! My non-Filipino/Philippine-based readers, please do participate too! You’d be helping Filipino kids a lot!
#ReadOutLoudChallenge accepted! Reading out loud my favorite lines from one of my favorite books, TWO BOYS KISSING by David Levithan, to spread the love for reading and to support @nbsfoundation. For every 75 videos posted, @nbsalert will help set up one library in a public school until we reach 7,500. Together, let’s promote the love for reading! Now, I challenge @lyragill, @saabgomez, and @sayitcharlie to do the same.
