[it's a Merry BUQO Christmas]

Voracious book & magazine readers will have a longer & merrier Christmas this year. 

BUQO, the premiere Filipino digital bookstore, newsstand & reader in one app, is generously giving away a  book or magazine EVERY SINGLE DAY for 36 straight days, starting 26 November up to 31 December 2014. A new item will be featured daily & will be completely FREE to download for 24 hours.

How does it work? 

First, get the BUQO app on your iOS or Android device, or both. A new book or magazine will be unveiled every day on BUQO's social media channels as the featured freebie. You will then have 11:00am until 10:00am the next day to get it. When 11:00 am comes around again, a new freebie shown on the special banner of the store will be up for grabs. This will continue to happen until the the last day of the promo when you will get all 36 digital books & magazines. So be sure to add them up on Facebook, Twitter & Instagram so as not to miss the featured freebie of the day.

As a preview, here's what I downloaded on the first day. 

Don't fret. You can still catch the freebie until 10:am today. Get connected with BUQO now through these links.
