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.

The Best of Chico & Delamar's The Morning Rush Top 10

The Best of Chico & Delamar's The Morning Rush Top 10 - Chico Garcia,  Delamar Arias I am what they call a “silent rusher” of the radio show, the Morning Rush at Monster Radio RX 93.1. It means, that I constantly tune in to the show but do not participate in sending greets, entries, tweets, etc. The highlight of this show is the Top Ten topics they have every morning from Mondays to Fridays.I love the show because the topics are relatable and the hosts, Chico Garcia and Delamar Arias (now also joined by Gino Quillamor), never fail to make me laugh. I’ve been listening to this show for almost seven years now, although I have missed several of the episodes (is that the right term?) I still got the chance to catch up, (thank goodness for podcasts!) and I never get tired of it. That being said, obviously, I am a big fan, so it was really nice to hear that they were releasing a book. I really appreciate that I get to have something tangible from the show. I read The Best of Chico and Delamar’s The Morning Rush Top 10 in a few hours; I can hardly put it down! Plus it’s only 200-pages or so that you’ll barely notice you’ve finished off several pages already. It really made me laugh and some entries were familiar too. It even feels like the hosts were there, reading out the Top Ten entries for the listeners like the way they do on the radio. Although there were times that I feel like some of the entries were ones that I’ve already heard before, it’s not such a big deal; that I guess is the power of “word of mouth”.I can say that the price of the book was very affordable, considering how well the book was made: very nice paper quality, a simple but “kengkoy” art cover and really good entries. But I do have to ask, is it really the BEST of the top ten topics? Don’t get me wrong, I really like this book, but being an avid listener of the show, I feel like there are other topics that would have been considered more of a stand-out subject matter than some of the ones included in the book. I don’t know the basis of how they picked which topics were to make it to the book but there were some that I wouldn’t consider as part of the “best” ones. Of course, that is only of my personal preference but over all I would recommend this book. Even if you aren’t a listener of the show, you can still be able to understand the book and find it entertaining.
