#bookblockade — well, many thanks to David Archuleta’s media clout

Written by Jayvee Fernandez


Here it is. A series of unrelated events can lead to a change agent for the Philippines. If not transformative, at least it will be very informational to bloggers and news agencies around the world on the plight of the great book blockade.

If you love books, please help us cross market the #bookblockade hashtag to let the world know about the stupidity of Espele Sales. You can keep track of the conversation through and keying in the #bookblockade hashtag.

Even Neil Gaiman is in rage:


If you are on Twitter, please re-Tweet your #bookblockade posts from your blogs and social networks and apply the hashtag. What harm can we do? After all, we’re just a bunch of uneducated comic book fanatics.
