The Blair Book Project

Hello! I'm Janus. I am a 3D Graphics Artist by profession, and a proud Book Addict - i mean Enthusiast, and Blogger. I'm very much into Young Adult and Fantasy genre but I open myself to reading other genres from time to time. I run a blog launched as The Blair Book Project on Blogger, where I post entries such as my book reviews and other book related articles. I obviously got the name of this blog for the movie "The Blair Witch Project," why the name you may ask? I have no idea! I just thought it had a good ring to it. Ha! Ha! I post reviews twice a week and I regularly participate in book memes and features that readers and blogger all over the globe share their book interests (i.e. In My Malibox, Top Ten Tuesdays, etc). I have 230 GFC Followers. My blog has over 37,000 pageviews history and have roughly 200 page views per day. I have written over 267 reviews since my span of blogging. I am also an avid Instagram user, with over 350 followers, where I post pictures mostly of books I'm currently reading, books I got for review, galleys, purchased from bookstores, etc. (Statistics as of March 2013). My book reviews are not exactly "reviews" in a sense because I simply just type down what I feel about the book. What I write is solely my opinion and should not be taken as a definite basis of how the book is to be judged entirely. We all have different likes and dislikes so please do understand that although I'm very optimistic about the books I read, there will be negative comments towards those that I don't find suiting for my taste.

Bakit Baligtad Magbasa ng Libro ang mga Pilipino? - Bob Ong An in-depth book that talks about the typical Juan dela Cruz and the inevitable matter of racism.I very much understood the topics of this book but unfortunately, this has been my least favorite among Ong’s books. It has nothing to do with the issue at hand, I fully accept the flaws and discriminations or whatever else there is to lash on about us Filipinos. I had no problem with comprehending with what was discussed. It’s just that this was too repetitive. Of all Bob Ong’s books, this was the easiest to grasp but apparently the least to enjoy. It had a lot to offer but I sometimes see it as a scrapbook, or worse, someone’s notebook where they cut-out and pasted or wrote down a collective list of articles they’ve found over the net and quotations they received via text messages. I would’ve enjoyed this if it wasn’t too bland and monotonous. There are several articles that I liked but when I flip through some of the pages another article pops up with just about the same idea so it’s a bit stifling to read about again. But I won’t deny that it’s a very evocative book.For more of my reviews, please visit my blog: The Blair Book Project @ www.theblairbookproject.blogspot.com
