Reading: A Good Way to Learn while Killing Time
« on: February 12, 2011, 08:36:31 PM »
Pagbabasa siguro ng kahit ano... Libro (Fiction, non-fiction esp Cinical Psychology and Court Proceedings), Dyaryo (even Obituaries), Magazine (kahit pambabae or "Teens"), Blogs, Wikipedia... even porn. Madami natututunan then ina-apply sa totoong buhay... May magandang resulta, me wala. pero sa experience na yun, in the end, may natutunan...

Hindi rin mananakaw yung mga natutunan sa pamamagitan ng pagbasa...

a little OT: Isusunod ko na siguro yung Matchbox/Hotwheels/Slot Car collection... Nakaka relax. heheh. Pag galing sa trabaho, nakakawala ng pagod... too bad, na-Ondoy yung iba... pero nadaragdagan ng 1 o 2 tuwing sweldo at may extrang pambili. hehe.

Uy! Bagong forum category! :-)

Reading is definitely one of my hobbies. It's educational, whether it be information from books or the internet (wikipedia, etc etc etc). It also broadens your vocabulary.

Nice toycar collection you got there! I remember when I was still 9 years old. I used to buy Hot Wheels/Matchbox and take them from their packaging haha. I guess I still have 'em cars somewhere here.

i love to read. kahit ano. naalala ko dati, i'd rather buy encyclopedia set that toys. of all things, yung pugad baboy series sa inquirer ang naging dahilan para mahilig ako sa pagbabasa. may subscription kase kame sa inquirer dati and una pugad baboy lang binabasa ko then eventually yung sports pages hanggang buong dyaryo na. then hanggang books na. the internet is such a blessing kase halos lahat ng mga books/articles na wala dito sa atin mababasa na, it came with a cost though, lumabo mata ko. medyo addictus kase ako magbasa, hindi ako titigil hanggang di ko natatapos. lalo na yung mga spy thrillers, kaya yun. pinaka extreme na ginawa ko e tapusin yung harry potter: order of phoenix in 3 days. walang work kase kaya reading marathon.

anyway, my reading is determined by time and the availability of reading materials. pag may movies ako hindi ako makapagbasa at lalo na pag nakaharap sa internet. pero nagttry na ulit ako magbasa dahil sa iba pang plano ko sa buhay... :-D

pero kaylngan mo muna alamin kung ano ang gusto mong basahin o alamin

haha. oo nga, Bro. 2nd hobby ko lang yung car collection... :-D yung books ko kasi, ni-rape ni Ondoy. nasa ilalim ng toy car shelves tapos wala ako sa bahay nung bumagyo, i was too late to save them...

@Jeff,

I envy you esp. on the Pugad Baboy. Bawal kasi samin comics dati kaya di ko nakahiligan tuloy. :cry: Puro encyclopaedia at self-help ang tinambak samin ng parents namin. hahah. But those helped a lot. Tapos yun nga, lumabo din mata sa kakabasa lalo na pag di mo mabitawan yung binabasa mo. hehe.

could anyone suggest a good reading material in "motivating others"? I have that problem for both my officemates and an organization I belong to. Nakaka-dismaya tuloy.

actually bawal din comics, yung collection ko ng funny komiks sinunog ng erpats ko eh, basura lang daw yun, walang matututunan. pero yung sa comics section ng inquirer wala sya magawa.

as for motivational books, check mo yung kay francis kong, personally hindi ko pa nababasa books nya pero twice na sya nag speak sa office namin and mare-rekomenda ko sya, mahal lang talent fee nun kaya mas practical na bili ka na lang book nya. not sure sa mga international authors.

wikipedia is kool, but remember that it's not a good material to cite when writing your own stuff, or even quoting things there during discussion. Diba pwedeng i-edit ng kung sino yun. Better yet click the sources or related articles below i.e. endnotes, etc. though kung madaliang basa at info, sa wikipedia din ako... :-D


question, e-books or hardcopies?

thanks for the suggestion, Jeff. Hanapin ko to mamaya pag-uwi. sakto, sweldo, may pambili. hahah.

question, e-books or hardcopies?

nag-aalangan ako sa e-books. meron kasi mga tao na nanggagagu, iniiba yung istorya... lalo na nung sumikat yung Harry Potter noon. kala ko nakadownload ako ng magandang copy. pagdating sa huli, parang nawala na sa tema. nun ni-check ko sa original book ng pinsan ko, ayun. mali pala.

kaya parang mas gusto ko pa din ang hardcopy. pero sa hardcopies naman, hindi ako bumibili ng brand new, kaya suki ako sa Booksale. haha. sa 1 brand new, 2 o 3 books na sa booksale. bibili lang ako ng brandnew kapag worth buying talaga. Art of War na translated in Cavell, naka-3 na kong bili. laging nawawala

minsan kasi masakit sa mata ang pdf...lalo na kung novels...tapos yung effort pa ng pag scroll/page down...  :lol:


madami akong ebooks tungkol sa music at guitarra pero dahil gusto ko magsulat ngayon ang sources ko ay mga online journals nalang..ang problema pag may bayad  :x


nakakaengganyo din yung mga komiks na softcopy, pero minsan natatamad ako dahil sa scrolling :lol: tapos dapat may .cbr software pa...una kong nabasang ganun yung Watchmen...nung tinamad ako pinanood ko nalang yung movie... :-P

i still prefer hardcopies over ebooks for personal reading, pero yung mga references na gamit namin sa trabaho karamihan softcopy na since masyadong madami kung hardcopy and every year nag uupdate. kung bibilhin din kase sobrang mahal samantalang kung yung softcopy, yearly subscription lang, nagagamit pa ng buong kumpanya.

problem lang dito satin napaka limited ng titles ng available books. pero dun sa powerbooks pwede ka magrequest kung may gusto kang title, medyo matagal lang bago maging available.

Uy. Okay to ah. Hehe.

I'd like to consider myself as a voracious reader back when I didn't have a laptop and desktop. Mostly, yung mga binabasa ko eh mga military books; works by authors like Tom Clancy, Andy McNabb, Richard Marcinko, H. Jay Riker, David Michaels. I was also into sci-fi/fantasy books such as Harry Potter, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Warhammer 40k, Forgotten Realms. Comics and graphic novels din, nangolekta ako before. Plus tons and tons of general fiction books I found in the house (as my mom was quite the bookworm herself).

Yun nga lang mula nung nagka-laptop, and then on, desktop, medyo na-lessen na pagbili ko ng books. Although, sometimes I'd download books in PDF format. But then again, I still enjoy reading through wiki sites such as Wikipedia, Gundam Wiki, Star Wars Wiki, Dragon Age Wiki, etc.

Q: How come you know a lot?
A: Because I'm a WILD reader.  :-D :-P

Recommended "old" readings:

1. The Art of War by Sun Tzu - my guide to survival in different aspects of life...
2. The Street Lawyer by John Grisham - even it's just a novel, it kind of wakes me up to reality...

Best recommended reading:

The Bible - Spiritually, it's uplifting... Practically, we get a) Action, b) Love Stories, c) A lot of Hero stories, d) Vocation, e) Quotes, and a lot of stories and sayings that guide us through life...

Ako naman I started reading just last year with The Hobbit.

I love Isaac Asimov's works. So far, natapos ko na Prelude to Foundation, Forward The Foundation, Foundation and nasa kalagitnaan na ako ng Foundation and Empire.

After I finish the Foundation series, LOTR naman...hehe :-D

Habit ko rin magbasa Encyclopedia nung bata ako kasi may picture. Ngayon na lang ako nahilig sa mga novels. Better late than never!
