My Escape, My Comfort

There were no books in reach as I was growing up. I did not come from a family of readers. However, this reality did not hinder my complex journey with reading. Through the years, I was able to finally identify the various activities and content that bring me comfort. Stories, Cartoons, and Films As a… Continue reading My Escape, My Comfort

How do you read?

Tagalog comics, English novels, Japanese manga, TV series subtitles, advertisements, newspaper reports, online article bits, and more: there are a lot of text that we read every day.

Mga Napulot sa Pagbabasa 20170426

Nakakalungkot na bagay na ang panitikan ay di gaya ng ibang aralin na nasusukat ang bisa sa tulong ng mga pagsubok at pagsusulit.

Ilan ang anak ni Ganoo't… Continue reading Mga Napulot sa Pagbabasa 20170426

Bookworm Experience: From Comics to Novels

Books weren't really my personal companion growing up. I did enjoy some colorful illustrations from my fairy tale books or school readings. Pictures spoke more to me than words did. Maybe because I was still learning my letters, but still this was me until that "magical" moment came. A time that made my twice a… Continue reading Bookworm Experience: From Comics to Novels

Books for an Old Soul

Personally, there is a different feeling whenever I flip through pages of books. The new and the old ones, I tend to be more attracted to the latter. The smell of old, thrift shop books are intoxicating, and yes it's strange but I sniff through some of the pages. It's just me 😉 Every reader… Continue reading Books for an Old Soul

Here is for another great summer ahead.… Continue reading My Summer Reading
