DRC Chistmas Par-tea and Book Swap

I was planning to have a Hello 2013 or highlight of 2012 post but I suddenly remembered that I forgot to post about an event that I truly enjoyed last year.

I am part of a Book Club/Reader's Circle here in Davao, we call ourselves the Davao Reader's circle. We have been in existence since 2009 but became inactive for the past 2 years. We used to meet twice a month but last year we only met less than five times and I really missed the group and our chats about books, movies and just about anything. I made it a goal to have a meet up for December. I suggested to the group to have a Tea Party and Book Swap and they agreed. 
We met last December 16 at Yellow Hauz Coffee Shop. We had raffle, book swap and a trivia quiz over food and of course I had milk tea. There was no shortage of books and stories! We all brought home books as in plural! I really had fun. 
Also, Pearl and Rose introduced to us their new site, Switotwins which is a great online resource for original children stories. 
I am really glad that new faces showed up and hope that we could really have a regular meet up this year. We have BIG plans this year which includes putting up of a Reading Club 2000 here in Davao.

  1. It is nice to know that group like this is in existence in Davao. I bet Bren would be interested to join if he has extra time.

    I am not much of a book reader but I read books that caught my interest every once in a while.

    Good luck to your group Raine :)

  2. This is a very healthy way to gather and exchange stuff :) With the advent of e-book readers, I'm so glad to know that there are still people who would rather read the conventional way. I still prefer it that way.

    Good luck to your group and keep doing what you do to encourage more youth to engage in worthy activities.

  5. I love reading books and when I am into it, I devour it:) It's nice for that group to be organized for those who love reading and being able to share thoughts and ideas or recommend books among members.
