Meg Cabot: The Princess Maker

This is a new segment here in Reading Chair. Author's Corner! I will be sharing about the authors that I have read. I will start with the author that had me start reading....... Meg Cabot, my favorite princess author! 


When I was still a kid, I never taught that I would be this addicted to reading books. My bookworm status had all started with Princess Mia! After watching the movie Princess Diaries, I was so hung up with the ending that I wanted to know more about Mia's adventure from a commoner to becoming a true princess.

Bookbed

I will be sharing this week a website for book lovers, who would want to share their opinions and reviews on books, book stores, book cafes and many more.

Bookbed started as an online 2nd hand bookstore from Sulit.com, which is now known as OLX.com, and that was early 2009. Since then it had evolved from online bookstore to online book review site and finally to what it is now known as a community for book lovers and aspiring writers and artist sharing their stories and experience with the books and places that they have encountered.


Bookbed is always open for application for those who would want to contribute a blog post or article for the site. I just discovered them this year, I had already contributed 2 blog post for them.
