FRCA 2014: On Free Books and A Reminder to Vote

The Filipino Readers’ Choice Awards is wonderful because it showcases Filipino books published the previous year. It allows readers to discover books they haven’t heard of, and share books they love with other readers.

It’s doubly wonderful because free copies of the nominated books abound, and free books are always good, right? Here’s a round-up of free books from the Romance in English Category, aka The Hunger Games. (Sidenote: It has to be the most fun, friendliest category yet.)

Free Book Round-up!

• All’s Fair in Blog and War by Chrissie Peria (whossat?) – Smashwords | Buqo | Wattpad
• Finding X by Miles Tan – Free on Amazon (from September 1-3 as part of the ebook bundle Love is the Answer)
• The Real Score by Kesh Tanglao – Free with coupon code HP72D on Smashwords | Free on Amazon (from September 1-3 as part of the ebook bundle Love is the Answer)
• Vintage Love by Agay Llanera – Free on Buqo
• Welcome to Envy Park by Mina V. Esguerra – Free on Buqo
If you’d like to read the other nominees (Katrina Ramos Atienza’s Well Played promo expired 2 days ago, drat!), you can still purchase them from Amazon, Smashwords or Buqo. They’re all well worth the cover price.

Don’t Forget to Vote

The voting period for the Filipino Readers’ Choice Awards is until September 10. Check out the ballot on their official site. It will only take a few minutes and you’ll get to share your book love.

I want to hear what you think. I also want potato chips.
