Books!
« on: February 12, 2008, 08:50:07 AM »
Do you read them?  What kind?  Any favorite authors?

Since last summer, I've gotten into reading mystery novels.  I can't say that I have a favorite author, but I've read quite a few by Sujata Massey and S.J. Rozan.

I read quite a lot over the summer when the weather was warm and I could read outside.  I haven't been reading as much now that it's colder.   :unsure:

I rarely read books per se. I read aviation and meteoroligical journals, sports magazines and children's books.

Ok, I know WHY you read children's books, but it still made me laugh when I saw that.   ;D}

law books! yung pirated, pero hardbound, maganda ang kalidad ng papel; pero pirated pa rin  Salamat sa mga matulungin at maawaing photocopy girls ng unibersidad at sa mga mababait na tao sa Recto (sa gilid ng UE, malapit sa Rex bookstore). Pagpalain nawa kayo sa lahat ng naitulong ninyo.     Mas mura ng halos 50%.  Ang laki ng natipid mo; habang estudyante ka, panggimik na yung natitira o pangbili ng isaw at korean barbecue. :D  ;D} ROFL!:

Author? Marami-rami din.  Simulan natin kay mapangbolang si Tolentino, sa nalilitong si Reyes, ang matapang na si Riano, at ang magaling na si Miriam Santiago   

On a serious note, I admire Ludlum.  Brilliant! Give me powers and I'll raise him from the dead.

Books? A lot to mention. If ever I read them? Nope, I don't have time anymore for them but only blogs in the internet do! lol

(Marami ako books, sobrang kapal na nga ng alikabok, ang problema lang walang gustong magbasa para sa akin. lol)

Di ko inabutan yang mga yan maliban lang kay Miriam Santiago. lol
Pero sa totoo lang sila Hector, Miranda, De Leon, Castillo  ang malimit na mga authors sa books ko noon pagdating sa Economics, Taxation & Biz. Mgt.  ;D}

In Philippine politics, I've read "Hello Garci" authored by Comelec commissioner Garcilliano.

I'm currently reading "Moderate Your Greed, Exterminate Your Breed" by Romulo Neri and Jun Lozada.

On Cyber Technology, I'm currently reading National Broadband Network and the effect of Chinese influence on the Filipino culture.

Hahahahaha musta Miss F....Sydney Sheldon's Sakal Sakali Saklolo?

The Fall of a Filipino Titan? Sounds interesting. Not unless a Filipino digs a well for himself can he ever fall 'coz he's already down there...lolz.
