  4. I went to the GFD last Feb 28 tho hapon na ako nakapunta kasi may klase pa kami. I really enjoyed the event and worth it ang pagbili ng coffee table book.<3 Almost 2 years na akong collector, these past few months ay hindi na ako masyadong nakakapagbasa dahil busy sa school pero sinisigurado ko paring makakabili ako ng mga bagong reprints at release ng Phr at iniipon ko sila para mabasa ngayong paparating na bakasyon. If I'm lucky enough para manalo ng GC ay gagamitin ko yun para mabili ang ibang books na wala pa sa collection ko. Thank you sa chance na ito. <3 <3 God Bless. <3 Rock on PHR <3 :) -Mirz

  6. Thank you for the chance! :) I will buy the reprinted premium books from PHR. `Coz, the price of the premium/elite books from PHR are too expensive so I will buy the pocketbook size reprinted. :) If I'm lucky enough I will be happy! Again, Thank you for the chance!

  7. I wanna buy anglel bautista's books, sonia francesca's recent stallion books, heart evangelista's scu and miss martha's books especially the sweetheart and kristine installments that i wasn't able to get. Basically, all books from phr. It's hard to choose just one and i can hardly remember the titles of those books i wanna buy because there were just too many. The stories are really beautiful. It makes me laugh, cry, angry, frustrated and all have you. And the story isn't forced, not created for the sake of creating a story. Their stories are stories with life. The characters seemed alive and existing. The characters is me. See? PHR is the best.

  8. I will buy all the books included in the Barely Heiress Series and all new release books written by Maricar Dizon

  9. I've never been so lucky when it comes to this but I'm always trying. :) Kung may bibilhin man ako sa GC 'yon ay ang mga obra ni Sonia Francesca, Sofia, Rose Tan, Vanessa, Mandie Lee, atbp. Those writers made me cry, laugh and help me realized that no matter how hard your situation is, there's Him. :) Thanks in advance.

  10. As of now, 6 years na akong PHR reader at namana ko pa to sa mother ko. Sa ngayon, marami na kaming books but still marami pa ring kulang sa collection namin. So kung ako ang mananalo ng GCs, hahatakin ko agad ang Mom ko sa suki naming PPC branch to buy books from our favorite writers: Mandie Lee, Vanessa, Angel Bautista, Belle Feliz, Maricar Dizon... (to name a few). Why buy their books? Well, 'coz the books they write are all beautifully written and worth every single cent we spend. Kaya hindi na nakakagulat na kasama sila sa 25 Most precious writers of PHR. :)
    Now the real problem now is that there are just too many good books to read yet so little time. Anyway, thank you for this chance for avid readers like me! Long live PHR! <3

  14. BLOG COMMENT:

    Hello! Maraming maraming salamat sa pagkakataon na ito na iyong ibinahagi sa mga tagahanga at tagasubaybay ng PHR novels. Kung papalarin ako na makuha, I would buy books by some of the new writers and those that are my favorites. Uunahin ko siguro iyong new writers para naman makapagbigay ako ng feedbacks sa gawa nila, in that way ko nakikita na matutulungan ko sila to move forward. :) Then I would buy ETL books kung pwede, para sa dalawa kong pamangkin. Muli, maraming maraming salamat! ^_^

    P.S: Ang saya saya siguro noong GFD. I've never been to a single PHR booksigning pero sa tingin ko palaging masaya. :)

  16. Thank you for that wonderful question, sir. Kung ako po ay papalaring manalo ng nga papremyong nakasaad sa itaas ay ipandadagdag ko sana sa iniipon kong pambili ng Coffee Table Book. Puwede ba iyon? Haha. Kung hindi puwede ay ipambibili ko na lang pocketbooks specifically ang Ranho Estate Series. I've been a Sonia Francesca Fan since I've started reading Stallion Series, especially Jigger and Trigger. At sa sobrang curious ko, pati kuwento ng kanilang mga magulang at Tiya ay akin na ring hinanap. And truth be told, napaiyak ako. Sa ngayon, hindi na ako nakakabili dahil maraming binabayaran sa school. Hay. Gustung-gusto ko po talaga sanang manalo para mabili ko nga ang Rancho Estate Series. Iyon lamang po. Maraming-maraming salamat po at sana marami pang ganito ang mangyayari sa hinaharap! God bless!

  21. If I won a GC i'd use it to by books from new writers or gawa ng mga writers na di ko pa nababasa. I want to see and compare their way of writing sa mga nauna at dati pa. "You are what you read" sabi from somewhere na narinig ko o kaya pauso ko. I don't really remember. But the thing is, teenage life ko puro pagbabasa ng pocketbook ang inatupag ko kaysa maglakwatsa. Bisho ko ang pagbabasa ng pocketbook. The stories sa pocketbook shapes up what I am today. My values na, my outlook in life (yeah this may sound gloomy) nakuha ko sa pocketbook. Kahit hindi lagi masaya ang mga pangyayari sa storya pinapakita na habang may buhay may pag asa. That differences of status in life or characteristics is not a basis para hindi magkasundo ang dalawang tao. That people aren't really that different and lagi somewhere deep down may goodness ang bawat isa. Pag shi ne share ko ang story na mga nababasa ko hindi lang iyong kwento ang binabahagi ko but the lessons na natutunan ko din. PHR pocketbooks' taught me how to dream and to be patient on it. That not everything is base on luck but also hardwork is needed. That sometimes kahit maligaw ka ng landas, may darating para ituro saiyo ang tamang daan. Someone will rise and brighten up your world. Gusto kong ishare at malaman to ng iba pang mga nagbabasa ng pocketbook. It's not just about the kilig, or how to get someone you like notice you but it's about the lessons you learn. Na kung minsan sawi, okay lang iyan may mga kaibigang ba back up saiyo. Sa pocketbook ko nahanap ang mga klase at ideal na mga kaibigan na gusto kong magkaroon. Not perfect but people who accepts all of you. Good and Bad. And yeah. I want that GC to buy the stories and share it to my room mates. Para ipakita din na, hindi porke gawang pinoy di kayang sumabay sa mga international :D Kaya din ng pinoy mag sulat ng kahit na anong genre. Gothic, Adventure? name it. Pinoys can do it. :D Banzai <3

  22. Wow! First of all that you for this chance. I'm trying my luck para na rin sa sister ko.
    Late 90's ng mahilig ako magbasa ng PHR pocketbooks pero mas naging mas mahilig ang sister ko..
    Kaya sana ma surprise ko sya if ever manalo.. Gusto ko syang ibili ng mga new release tulad ng The Prodigal Wife. Alam kung wala pa sya nung mga bago... Kaya un ang bibilhin ko.

    Thanks for the chance ;)

  24. Been a PHR avid reader since HS. Mother ko unang nagintroduce sakin sa PHR novels. If ever ako yung manalo bibilhin ko mga kulang ko sa SCU series ni Heart Yngrid at Stallion nina Sofia at Sonia Francesca. And Black edition ng Kristine Series as a gift para sa nanay ko. Hindi lang ako mapapasaya mo pati mother ko din. Salamat sa pagkakataong ito. 😁

  25. If I will win, ibibili ko ng pocketbooks ni Sonia Francesca, kung anuman ung available sa Precious Pages at the time na pumunta ako dun. Lalung-lalo na ung Jio Cantiller ng Stallion Series Revisited.

    Hmm, gusto ko din bumili ng mga bagong books ni Sheena Rose, Heart Yngrid. Silang 3 kasi ung pinakafavorite kong romance novels eh. Huling huli nila ung mga bagay na kinakikiligan ko. XD
