Paolo Chikiamco hosted the plenary session at The Verdure.
After the welcoming ceremony, it's time for the sessions to take place. I attended The Blog Tour panel, so i wasn't able to take photos of the other parallel session, Readers Take the Rein (Eriele, Blooey, Tarie and Zarah). Go check out the blogs of Anne and Xi:
After the quick break for AM snacks, we went to watch the session Supporting Authors You Love. Mina, Bebang, Tepai and Kim shared what's the best way to show support for authors. It was enlightening to hear things from an author's perspective, it was really fun and an interactive discussion. Ms Bebang was so hilarious.

At 2:30PM, we gathered in the Verdure Hall for the live reading with Rachel and Gio. They read excerpts from Cover (Story) Girl by Chris Mariano, The Boyfriend Backtrack by Dawn Lanuza, Songs Of Our Breakup by Jay E Tria, The Kitchen When It Sizzles (tamed version) by Chrissie Peria and Finding X by Miles Tan. Let's just say the feels were all over the place.

Last photos were taken after the reading so i wasn't able to capture when The Kitchen When It Sizzles won the award for Best Romance in English or the hunger games for free books that happened.
All in all, it was a fabulous day for fabulous readers and authors. What an awesome experience for my first time at the Filipino ReaderCon.
