The first FFP Readathon is going to be held at Libreria, a charming independent bookstore at the heart of Cubao X in Quezon City.

For those of you unfamiliar with Libreria, here are some photos to help you get to know the place. It's an awesome bookstore with an awesome owner.

Libreria opened in October 2010, and in the few months that it's been operational, it has been host to a number of book-related events, such as book club discussions, book blogger meet-ups, author meet-ups, and even an occasional "wild" party.

We hope the pics give you a good idea of our venue. And if they don't, well then drop by on April 8-9 and have a look yourself. Why not join the readathon while you're at it?:)

Here's a map to Cubao X, for those among you who need it.
