Epic Recs: May 2014

It’s a new month so here’s another round of Epic Recs month with Sandra @ Sandra’s World of Books.

The basic gist is that we push each other to read a book this month. But basically, we’re just enabling each other’s book-buying addiction. Haha!

Title: 8-Bit Christmas
Author: Kevin Jakubowski
Publication date: November 1, 2013
Publisher: DB Press Press
Series: N/A
Acquisition: Netgalley

It’s 1980-something and all nine-year-old Jake Doyle wants for Christmas is a Nintendo Entertainment System. No Jose Conseco rookie card, no GI Joe hovercraft, no Teddy friggin’ Ruxpin–just Nintendo. But when a hyperactive Shih Tzu is accidentally crushed to death by a forty-two-inch television set and every parent in town blames Nintendo, it’s up to Jake to take matters into his own hands.

Free Comic Book Day 2014

It’s Fully Booked’s main branch so it has a lot of stocks and it gives away more stuff. But thankfully, Fully Booked has opened up another big store in Alabang so the crowd has somewhat been divided I believe. Continue reading
