Thank You, Bookbed

I'm fond of joining online raffles and giveaways. You could say that I'm a big fan of it! On one fine day of December, I joined a book giveaway courtesy of Bookbed. Bookbed is an online book selling /swapping site where the owner posts her books on her Facebook, Tumblr and Twitter that is ready for reselling. I found about their site through my friend, Kristin Zapanta (Young && Stung), where she purchased books from her before.

I'm a reader, a bookworm. And it's a must for me to buy books at the lowest price as possible. Whether brand new or just a bit sloppish, dog-eared or has been infested my termites... as long as it is readable, I'LL BUY IT! I'd rather choose the beauty of the physical book itself than those electronic-engineered books. I long for the smell of the books, the art of your books piling up on your bedside table and the... stain of coffee, chocolate or whatsoever. LOL!

So, the giveaway. Yes --- I JUST WON A BOOK!!! But wait, I'll share a very short story before the winning =)

The day before the winners were announced, my friends and I had a simple gathering at Greenhills. When it's about time to head home, my friend, Camille Salazar (No Malice in Wonderland) and I were just talking about the book giveaway Bookbed is giving. We both joined the contest, and we both agreed that whoever one of us luckily would win a book will share it with each other. Deal is done!

So, the day we both waiting for! Ladies and Gents, check out who won! =)

Imagine our surprise and excitement when we both realize that we won!! Indeed a wonderful Christmas for us! And get this, with all the numerous raffles and giveaways I've joined before, this was my first time winning! So please, just imagine my excitement! *GUFFAW*

Here's my book I got from Bookbed after the delivery =)
Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging by Louise Rennison
 And here's the one from Camille =)
