*Note: Please view the promo mechanics. They are listed below this image.

It is a real honor for me to be asked to pick the books for this Fully Booked Christmas offer. Fully Booked gave me the categories and asked me to pick titles that would match the categories they came up with.

I'm excited to be announcing this promo to Fully Booked's Facebook followers, which was created in order to give a BIG "Thank you!" for liking the Fully Booked fanpage, and for all the helpful comments, suggestions, and feedback since its inception.

Come the Christmas rush, people tend to forget the true meaning of Christmas--what with all the spending, rushing around, and mind-numbing  decision-making on what to get for who (I am raising my hand as a sign of my guilt here). Its nice to be able to help people make up their minds and sort of ease their stress via helpful gift suggestions. Yes, Christmas is a time for giving and that could come in any form as long as its not a negative one. Let's help each other enjoy the Holiday season, and help spread that infectious Christmas Spirit!! Happy Holidays, everyone!  

Here are the promo mechanics:

In the spirit of the 12 days of Christmas, I will randomly post 12 book suggestions on our Facebook NOTES TAB per day (spread out between November 30-December 23), each for a special category. One copy of each suggested title will be raffled off.

1. All you have to do is make your suggestion on the relevant Lucy's 12 Christmas Treats post, which is located in Facebook page's NOTES tab by recommending ANY book (made-up ones don’t count) that will serve as a fitting present for that particular category. 

2. Only one recommendation post per person is allowed for the particular category. 

3. The cut-off time for posting recommendations for that particular category will be at 11:59 p.m. of that same day it was posted.

4. The winners will be chosen randomly via  

5. The winner will be posted on Facebook the following day, along with the date that they can claim their prize.

Here is an example:
On the first day of Christmas I would give my Boxing Fanatic Uncle Pacman: Behind the Scenes with Manny Pacquiao the Greatest Pound-for-pound Fighter in the World by Gary Andrew Poole…What would you give your Uncle this Christmas?

Anna Santos: I would give “Muhammad Ali” by Jonathan A. Brown 

*NOTE: This promotion is not applicable outside of the Philippines. This promotion only applies to Metro Manila and to provinces with Fully Booked branches, specifically: Cebu, Angeles City, and Clark Freeport Zone (Pampanga). Prizes can be claimed at Fully Booked Fort Bonifacio for winners who live in Metro Manila. For winners who live outside of Metro Manila,  prizes can be claimed at the Fully Booked branch nearest you. Prizes will not be delivered by Fully Booked.

**This promotion is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with, Facebook. Any information Fully Booked gets is for proper prize distribution only.


  1. cool. can't wait for it to start :)

  2. How sad my Facebook is currently deactivated. Will you be having stuff like these for Twitter? :-) *hopeful*

  3. @Helen Mary: We just held a promo last week exclusive to Twitter, actually. Check out the November 26 entry :) We also plan to have more Twitter-exclusive events

  4. Too bad that the provinces without Fullybooked cannot join. :(

  5. Actually, one of our winners is from Iloilo. She has asked friends from Manila to claim the prize for her. It is not that people from provinces without branches cannot join because they can. It is only that we will not deliver the prizes to provinces without Fully Booked branches.

  6. If ever I win a book, do I need to claim to a certain branch only? Can't it be delivered to the the nearest Fully Booked branch of the winner's location?

  7. @Kristine: If it is in Metro Manila, it can only be claimed at the main branch in Bonifacio High Street. For winners residing out of Manila it can be claimed at the branch nearest their location. Branches outside Manila are: Cebu, Clark Pampanga, and Angeles City :)
