I have been very busy the past few weeks and found out that the blog posts that should have been posted was still in the drafts. The video for this post should be up but I have decided not to post. Sad time for poor me.
Despite my numerous shortcomings, I am posting my 2nd quarter haul. The books mentioned here are either new from Fullybooked, National Bookstore, and ordered online or secondhand books bought from book sale in NBS or book stalls inside the malls.
Here are the signed pages of my books done during the book signing at Adarna House’s Booth at the Manila International Book Fair last September 20, 2015. This is my first time to attend a book signing so I was amazed that authors will take time to write messages on top of their signatures.
A Murder on Balete Drive is the first in a series of comics by Budjette Tan (story) and KaJo Baldisimo(art) titled “Trese”. Published by Visprint Inc. on 2008, Trese is a horror and crime comics about the adventures of Alexandra Trese, bar owner of The Diabolical and investigator of crime, together with the Kambal (her bodyguards), Hank the bartender, and the characters you will encounter only in the stories of your lolo and lola. Set in the streets of Metro Manila, Trese gives Philippine folk tales and legends urban and modern twist.
