Our book community, Flips Flipping Pages (FFP), was invited to share our experiences in online networking for the bookish at the first Philippine Digital Publishing Conference, The Future of the Book, held at the UP-Ayala Technohub.

Representing book readers and FFP, I shared the FFP story and wrapped up the presentation with some notes about how publishers and authors can build relationships with the readers.

  • Reading used to look like this. A solitary activity. A 1 to 1 interaction between reader and the book. Image Source: http://hopkins.typepad.com/wafa/
  • Image Source: http://bethlovesbollywood.blogspot.com/2008_05_01_archive.htmlMost people back then read in the privacy of their own bedrooms, the bathroom, and some even had reading rooms.I think a lot of us can relate to this. My own experience with the book started when I was 3. My mom taught me how to read, but very soon after, I was on my own. I remember devouring the Ladybird series of fairy tales. I remember crying to The Little Match Girl. I completed the whole set of Nancy Drews. I remember that I could not sleep without having to first read something.

  • This is one of my latest book experience.
  • This was for the launch of Mockingjay, the final book in a series that started with Hunger Games.

      The book itself is a curious artefact... It doesn’t have to be plugged in, activated, or performed by a machine; all it needs is light, a human eye, and a human mind.

      - Ursula K. Le Guin

      When it comes to books, Gege has had an on-off romance that started in childhood. But when she discovered Shelfari (www.shelfari.com) back in 2007, her relationship with books became a passion.
       
      A passion shared with the 1,298 online members of Flips Flipping Pages* -- a community of book nuts who love to collect, swap, mooch, talk about, sell, touch, smell, look at, give away, cover, fondle, and blog about books. And yes, they read them books too. In this online group, Gege communes with people who would sacrifice lunch money and lunch hour to buy and read books. The Flippers, as they like to call themselves, also meet monthly to discuss select books, authors, and a diverse assortment of genres. Their book and non-book adventures have brought them as far up as Sagada; deep inside the musty, dusty book warehouses in the Metro; and through various settings in time and space.
       
      Gege C. Sugue conducts Communication workshops for corporate clients, teaches part time at the De La Salle University, and serves as a Marketing consultant and writer. She works at home, which means she communicates with virtual, global “officemates “via Facebook, Twitter, and other online channels.
