To all my other fellow bloggers who live outside the Philippines, happy Teen Lit Day! How did you celebrate it? I tried Rocking the Drop but I was too busy at work so what I did, I brought a number of YA books I own at the hospital where I work and let some patients read them. These are the books I lent:
- Life on the Refrigerator Door by Alice Kuipers - that was passed from patient to patient (I tried to disinfect it every time a patient finishes with it - you can't get too sure it won't carry infection!) and everybody loved it because it was brief but very original and emotion-packed!
- Boy Meets Boy by David Levithan - a gay patient picked this up and was so glad to find a book about gay relationships.
- Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan - an older patient borrowed this, imagine that, and so far he said that it was really beautifully-written and found it very hilarious and powerful.

I thought it would be nice to put a description like that as if you were reading a feature off a newspaper. Don't ask me how long it took me to write those stuff up there, but just to give you an idea, I had to rack my brain for days to try and make it funny. Or not.
Moral Lesson for the Day: Book sales happen rarely. Grab the opportunity to burn your budget on some really interesting gems.
