I buy books. And sometimes I read them. This blog is for the times when I do more than just store shelf candy.

Ang FFP Para Kay B

The Flippers had another fun book discussion. Talaga! Etong proof. http://tinyurl.com/dbtdmr

We discussed Ricky Lee's Para Kay B, his first novel ever.

One of the characters in the novel, Irene, has a photographic memory and is fascinated with facts. I'm going to channel her in writing this brief report.

Number of times the Flippers have met in a bookstore: 2 (The first one was our first eyeball sa Books for Less, Roces branch. And the 2nd time was today at Bestsellers at Robinson's Galleria.)

Number of times we've had the author/creator join the meeting: 2 (The first one was Carlo Vergara for Zsa Zsa Zaturnnah, and the 2nd time was today when Ricky Lee, multi-awarded scriptwriter and author of the novel Para Kay B came to visit. He was very accommodating in answering our numerous questions. I was so enlightened.)

Number of Flippers in this meeting: 20ish

Number of times the Flippers have met for a book discussion: 12!!! Amazing.

The next Flippers book discussion: May 23, 2PM at Barbara's in Intramuros; read any Philippine history book.
