1. Nick, you have personally been bullied, especially once you started attending public school in Australia. You say you were a bully’s dream because you were born without arms or legs—in other words you were totally defenseless. Can you tell us a little bit about your experience?
I think a lot of us feel defenseless against bullying and I definitely felt defenseless because I didn’t believe I had any self-worth and I felt alone. I was the only one with no arms and no legs, and I was also the first disabled person in the public schools in Australia. It was really hard because I couldn’t get away from it, and my parents just said to ignore it. And although I couldn’t ignore it, they did great at giving me love and planting seeds of love in me.

Like most books I end up treasuring, I picked this one by chance. The eerie front cover with the lone castle standing ominously in a gloomy background, piqued enough curiosity to read the back cover, which to my dismay, revealed nothing of the plot, containing only glowing reviews from authors I never really cared for. They did, however, offer context clues —Adventure, Old World, magic and sorcery— words that got me excited in my youth and as an almost-30 something, still does.
The Fully Booked Foundation, in cooperation with the Philippine Toy Library and the Kinder Project, are committed to contribute to learning and literacy in public schools around the metro. Last August 12, 2014, members of the foundation visited Balara Elementary School to bring a bookshelf filled with titles for children ages 4-12. This is the first of 12 mini-libraries that the foundation is working on donating to 12 different public schools in Quezon City.
"I wasn't planning on reading The Fault In Our Stars, but a friend told me a story that just made me have to read it. When the book was still new she was in Fully Booked, browsing different books she was interested in when she came across The Fault In Our Stars. She was looking through it and there was a note that somebody, some stranger had left in the book. The note read, 'This book changed my life.' So my friend had to buy it and read it. And when I heard the story, I had to too."

WELCOME TO OUR FIRST EVER BOOK CLUB. *CLINK*
The phrase ‘required readings’ is a familiar one – a list of never ending book titles, dates, and pages in a syllabus, given on the first day of Lit class or the last day of summer break.
Some have gone on reading what is required without truly reading them. Some have met the book of their lives in those readings and have never looked back. But most of us go through life wishing there might be another chance to revisit them. After all, there’s nothing like a fresh pair of eyes and a glass full of new life experiences to make that next reading, richer and more special.
Here’s your second chance. We’re starting a book club and you’re invited.
