hindi mo madadala ang ebooks habang nasa biyahe na sobrang trapik. :D unless ilabas mo ang iPad mo habang nasa pampublikong sasakyan.
masarap mag-immerse sa mga philosophy books, sigurado dugo ang mata mo pag binasa mo in PDF form :D

minsan naisip kong bumisita ng mga public libraries at humanap ng mga fiction stuff (except for vampire stuff and such fantasies!) na inaalikabok na at napagdaanan na ng ilang siglo. tipong mga best sellers noon na nakalimutan na.

and regarding novels-turned-movies, iba pa rin talaga pag binasa ang libro, lalong mae-enhance ang utak mo sa pag-imagine ng mga events and characters, unlike sa movie na-interpret na kasi ng director, at spoon-feeding na lang yung kwento...

I used to read newspapers a lot when I was still in high school. Favorite ko yung World News kasi hinihintay ko magkagera. I don't know why. Hehe... Then when I was a bit older (i think that was yesterday.. joke!) fiction books na ung binabasa ko. Books of dan brown blew my imagination.

When I encountered God I started to read the Bible which will always be the best book. I still read the Bible everyday and God's Words never fails to inspire me.

Leadership books are good too. Those written by John Maxwell is really a blessing. I also would recommend a book for those who thinks a lot... the idea book... search nyo na lang sa national bookstore. hehe!

Ayos talaga yung new forum :-D

Reading is something I do regularly. Paminsan, malas lang at wala akong time. Nabibitin ako when my "to read" pile gets taller and taller :lol: medyo impulsive rin ako bumili ng books and magazines. I don't mind spending for them. Lagi namang sulit :-)

I'm reading books again , after spending some time with PDF files.

atleast I won't risk breaking any LCD ebook readers, but I'm hoping to get one soon.

I read mostly devotional/ inspirational books.

I still prefer actual books than read stuff on screen  There's something about the turning of a page with your hand and the smell of ink and paper that I find enjoyable, where you can "touch" the characters.  Giles, of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, said the same thing when he was asked why he doesn't like using computers.

Iba pa din talaga kapag sa libro nagbabasa.

I really love reading especially pag andun na ako sa time na page turner na yung binabasa ko at napapabilis ang basa. :-)

In the advent of an electronic meltdown, books are definitely essential.

I Am Ozzy (Ozzy Osbourne w/Chris Ayres) - 9/10.  the book is written in a very conversational style, almost as if you were listening to ozzy speak, complete with the brummie slang...

currently finishing Sid Vicious - No One Is Innocent (Alan Parker) and so far it's a 7/10...

Reading has always been a good recreational activity for me. It helped me gain knowledge far beyond the ordinary individuals who don't read. It's like getting an idea from the author of the book. An extension of their wits. Keep on reading.

Nakakaadik nga magbasa. Napaparami pagbabasa ko ngayon.

Huli ko nabasa The Catcher in the Rye. Ok lang. Hindi na kasi ko ganon kaya hindi ko masyado naapreciate. Pero maganda din naman talaga siya. I'd rate it 7/10. Pero funny talaga siya haha. More of comedy siya para sakin kesa depressing na story na madalas sabihin ng mga taong pa-coollll.

Mga librong nabasa ko these past few weeks:

Dark Tower series: The Gunslinger (Book 1) by Stephen King.
Ok lang din, luma na kasi, siguro nung time na yun benta pa siya sa tao. Yung huling part nalang nung ineexplain na yung Dark Tower saka ako na-engganyo. Ayoko na yata basahin yung 7 more books nito kasi parang luma na yung style.

Naked by Dave Sedaris
Nirecommend lang ng kaibigan ko. Nakakatawa daw eh hindi naman ako natawa. [pichapie] si Dave at kinkwento lang niya mga ginagawa niya sa buhay niya. Ok din naman pagkkwento niya.

Snakes and Earrings (Japanese Author)
Medyo weird, tungkol lang siya actually sa dila na cncut para maghugis dila ng snake. At piercings. Tapos ang pinaka highlight ay yung nagssex na yung babae at nagpierce sa kanya. Sadista kasi yung pagssex. At napakagaling nung pagkakadescribe ng pagssex nila. Parang gusto ko tawagan yung fubu ko bigla nun LOL. Medyo sick tong novel na to.

Right now ang binabasa ko ay yung 1984 ni George Orwell. Bigay ko opinion ko pag natapos na.

1984 by George Orwell
Nabasa ko na. This is such a powerful book that I think it is more than just a novel. Never thought of how the world could end up like how it was portrayed in the book. Nakakatakot din pala kung ganon mangyayari. Para nga siyang warning. Especially dun sa afterword ni Erich Fromm marrealise mo. Puwede nga kayang ganon mangyari?

I have read both already. I had a copy of Jonathan Livingston Seagull before that got lost. Luckily just yesterday I found one at Booksale in hardcover. Can't wait to read it again.
