Summit Books reprints The Best of Chico and Delamar’s The Morning Rush Top 10
Feb 22, 2012
“Just last month, The Best of Chico and Delamar’s The Morning Rush Top 10, a collection of over 100 of the popular RX 93.1 program’s craziest, naughtiest, and funniest Top 10 lists, snagged the second spot on National Book Store’s local bestseller lineup. This month, the compilation earns another coup as Summit Books orders a reprint to meet rising reader clamor nationwide!
“We’re thrilled that the show’s fans have been very supportive of the book, with readers even from all the way abroad getting their own copies,” Summit Books publisher Christine Ko says. “The demand for the book makes it clear that Chico and Delamar’s humor has a universal appeal among Pinoys.”
Summit Books has printed 15,000 more copies of The Best of Chico and Delamar’s The Morning Rush Top 10, in addition to the initial print run of 40,000. This brings the total print run up to 55,000 copies.
Summit Books released the bestselling compilation in December of last year to coincide with the 15th anniversary of The Morning Rush with Chico & Delamar, one of the longest-running FM radio shows in the country and a Best Comedy Program awardee at the 19th KBP Golden Dove Awards. Barely a month after its launch, the compilation rose to number two on both the National Book Store and Powerbooks local book charts.
The Best of Chico & Delamar’s The Morning Rush Top 10 is available in newsstands, bookstores, and supermarkets nationwide for only P175.”
Wow, thank you guys! Hopefully more reprints to come!
This is it, our huling hirit! The FINAL leg in our book tour, so hopefully you guys come and join us for our book signing tomorrow, Saturday, February 25, at NBS MOA, from 2-5pm, with registration starting at 1pm! We promise to stay on for as long as there are people lined up. Don’t get disheartened in case there’s a long line, because we won’t leave until we finish signing your books and taking photos with you guys. In case you missed the past book signings, we hope you make it to this one. Even if you’ve had your book signed, it would be nice just to have you guys join the fun, and it’s a momentous event for us as well.
So again, let’s all meet up tomorrow, at National Bookstore SM Mall of Asia, 2-5pm! See you there!
(Thanks to @jrhyan for the nice poster!)
Hehehe, I’m sure hindi, pero ang sarap isipin na ganun nga. So, isipin nalang natin that that was really the case and enter this into radio lore. But I must admit, it was one of our funniest (and naughtiest) Top 10’s ever.
(thank you to @cherrythegreat for the photos!)
This was probably one of the most fun of our book signings, together with the Trinoma stop. The pace was more relaxed, and again, as we promised, we were able to accommodate every single person who lined up. We were able to sign all the books and take as much pictures as everyone wanted.
It was also fun because we took little breaks just to fool around with the people who attended. I posted a video earlier of some of the more fun moments. I swear, people wouldn’t believe me when I tell them that SOOO many people were commenting that I was simply gorgeous and mouth-watering that day! Why is that FACT so hard to swallow?!? Geez.
Ginoboi was nice enough to drop by just to say hi to everyone, but he couldn’t stay on to sign autographs or to pose for pictures because he had a hosting in Trinoma.
There was also a surreal moment involving someone who’s a big boss over at the MMDA, and his story about the former TTMO, and the topic that was spawned by the now-defunct group, which also made it to the book. He claims hearing the Top Ten about the TTMO caused them to change the name to TDO. I’m sure he’s exaggerating, but nevertheless it’s aliw to think it’s true. It’s SUPER interesting, I promise to post it today.
We also had a new bodyguard, the other manong was absent, but we still had our ever-reliable Kuya Maui to make hawi the multitudes and throngs of fans who rabidly claw their way for a glimpse, a touch of The Morning Rush hosts…okay fine I exaggerate. And of course, the event wouldn’t be a hit without the staunch support of the Rushers, who tirelessly troop to every venue to lend their undying support. As one Rusher (Kengkarots) commented, “parang simbang gabi, talagang kinokompleto!”
So for the last time, we’d like to invite everyone to the FINAL book signing, happening this Saturday, February 25, at NBS MOA, from 2-5pm, with registration starting at 1pm. I do wish you guys join us, it’ll hopefully be epic, and a little bit bittersweet, as we wrap up our book signing tour. See you this Saturday!
FINAL STOP: National Bookstore, SM Mall of Asia, February 25, 2-5pm, with registration starting at 1pm.
Thanks a kajillion to @cherrythegreat for being our tireless photographer, and now videographer for our book signings! I really love this video! She compiled the fun moments of the signing at Powerbooks Greenbelt 4 and edited it into one video. Thanks Cherry Pie!
Our book tour is almost at the end of its run, and we’d like to invite you to join us in our only stop in Makati, this Saturday, February 18, 2012, at Powerbooks Greenbelt 4! As always, the actual signing is from 2-5pm. But the registration starts at 1pm! So many Makati people were asking about a book signing in that area, so hopefully you guys can join us then. And again, like we did in Megamall, we promise to stay on for as long as there are people lined up. A lot of people left in Megamall when they saw that the line was so long, but those who stayed on were ALL accommodated! So we’d like to implore everyone who wants to have their books signed to please bear with the lines if ever, because we’ll really make time to sign your books and take photos with you.
So again, February 18, this Saturday, Powerbooks Greenbelt 4, from 2-5pm, with registration dtarting at 1pm. See you there guys!
