para sa mga mahilig magbasa ng libro. dito na kayo mag-post at huwag dun sa pictures category.

anong libro ang binabasa nyo ngayon at ano ba ang mga hilig ninyong basahin?

ako’y mahilig sa mg spy novels mula nung elementary pa ko. ewan ko kung bakit. basta gustong-gusto kong magbasa ng mga cold war novels noon (hanggang ngayon). up to the point na mag-self study ako ng russian at makabasa na ng cyrillic. mga paborito kong authors ay sina Robert Ludlum, John Le Carré, Len Deighton, Martin Cruz Smith, atbp.

ngayon ay binabasa ko ang “The Night Manager” na sulat ni John Le Carré. nakuha ko 'to sa isang tambak ng libro na pinamimigay sa International Center dito sa 'min.

para sa mga mahilig magbasa ng libro. dito na kayo mag-post at huwag dun sa pictures category.good idea.

bihira yata akong magbasa ng spy novels. teka, bihira na pala akong mabasa ng kahit na anong novels lately. puro short stories at essays, mas kaunti lang kasi ang investment sa oras. kayang tapusin ang isang short story o essay sa isang sitting (sa living room, sa train, o sa toilet) :devil:

Dear Paul,

Know what,i read a le Carre novel when I was in High School, typically old style…Is the Night Manager a new novel?I saw a feature of him in the Newsweek or Time Magazine and he is coming out with a new novel…I found his novel interesting up to a certain point when I heve no other choices…he he biro lang but incidentally like the pacing of Ludlum,Follet better and now am a fan of Dan Brown ,etc…Why dont you try Crichton`s latest novelss…really interesting and relevant to nanotechonology now…

Cheers, Chameleon

I would like to get copies of his other books.

Now I am reading 誤解されているフィリピン (Misunderstood Philippines), a book in Japanese someone recommended in another thread.

Miro Kasai, the author, is taga-Keio Univ, and had lived in Manila for 10 years.
Miro sounds like a woman’s name, but google indicates the author is a man.
He is very upset with the ignorance or misunderstanding by the Japanese about things or people of the Philippines.

He knows a lot.

I have a hunch he is reading this as a member or a visitor.:rolleyes:

“GUIDE TO INVESTING”

…it’s about,What the Rich Invest In,That the Poor and Middle Class Do Not!..
by:Robert T.Kiyosaki with Sharon L.Lechter= The authors of ‘Rich Dad Poor Dad’
…I would like to share the author’s final word;

The 90/10 Rule of Money

Most of us have heard of 80/20 rule.In other words,
80% of our success comes from 20% of our efforts.
Originated by the Italian economist Vifredo Pareto in 1897.
It is known as the principle of least effort.
Rich dad agreed with the 80/20 rule for overall success in all areas but money.

When it came to money,He believed in 90/10 rule.
Rich dad had noticed that 10% of the people had 90% of the money.
He pointed out that in the world of movies,10% of the actors made 90% of the money.
He also noticed that 10% of the athletes made 90%
of the money as did 10% of the musicians.
The same 90/10 rule applies to the world of investing,
which is why his advice to investors was “Don’t Be Average”.

this book was a valentine gift from my hubby…

Hello po!:slight_smile: I love books pero halos lahat ng nasulyapan kong mga binabasan niyong libro on my way d2 sa last page hindi ko pa nabasa or nadinig:p . I love fictional stories pero ang all time favorite ko talaga is history books. HavenT read much though mostly iyong mga galing pa sa school like Illiad and Oddessy. DidnT have much access hanggang makapunta na ako sa japan and earn my own money:p. Ngayon ang binabasa ko po (30x na yata:D ) ay Pride and prejudice by Jane Austen. di ko alam bakit pinapaulit ulit ko to pero ni hindi ko pa nakakalahati ang Sense and sensibility:O . Anybody heard of 48Laws of Power by Richard Geere?description ng friend ko nagpapasama ng tao:D pero may mga useful tips naman.I love to discuss books din po sana magkaroon din tayong thread about specific books.

P.S.
May nagbabasa po ba sa inyo ng Harry Potter???(:stuck_out_tongue: Kakahiya man pong itanong)

hi VeeGee,

i usually choose the books i read basing on my mood, but sometimes i also choose books out of curiosity because of what i heard about it. i also read books related to issues i’m interested in. and, as for the required readings, i read them regardless of whether i enjoy it or not. :slight_smile:

para sa mga mahilig magbasa ng libro. dito na kayo mag-post at huwag dun sa pictures category.

anong libro ang binabasa nyo ngayon at ano ba ang mga hilig ninyong basahin?

ako’y mahilig sa mg spy novels mula nung elementary pa ko. ewan ko kung bakit. basta gustong-gusto kong magbasa ng mga cold war novels noon (hanggang ngayon). up to the point na mag-self study ako ng russian at makabasa na ng cyrillic. mga paborito kong authors ay sina Robert Ludlum, John Le Carré, Len Deighton, Martin Cruz Smith, atbp.

ngayon ay binabasa ko ang “The Night Manager” na sulat ni John Le Carré. nakuha ko 'to sa isang tambak ng libro na pinamimigay sa International Center dito sa 'min.

Hello Supermoderator Paul… kakatuwa meron palang ‘supermoderator’ ang TF… Dati I used to read policital books like 1984, The Forbidden Book, America’s Empire in the Philippines etc. etc… nung nag-mature ako, gossip sites na binabasa ko like perezhilton, TMZ, etc. etc. :smiley:

On a serious note, recommended ko yung last 2, truth rings on that book. nainis ako nung binasa ko yun, asar pa nga ako sa kano eh and the irony of it, kano napangasawa ko lolz

I’m halfway into Filipino Prehistory by F. Landa Jocano. It debunks many “common knowledge” taught us in school. Interesting read.

Before this, I finished two small books about Bonifacio: Adrian Cristobal’s The Tragedy of the Revolution and the other by Ambeth Ocampo’s Bones of Contention. Specially Cristobal’s, the two books are a must-read for history buffs.

I just finished reading SAWI (funny essays, stories and poems on all kinds of heartbreak) it’s an anthology edited by Ada Loredo, BJ Patino and Rica Santos. Pretty funny… para sa mga duguan ang puso, matatawa nalang kayo:D

Another good anthology is PINAY (autobiographical narratives by women writers, 1962-1998). Inspiring and empowering to the Pinay spirit in you:)

Sa ngayon po ay hindi na masyadong nakakabasa ng mga nobela. Paminsan- nagbubuklat na lang ng Bibliya.

I am also a fan of Robert Ludlum, and I liked the Bourne series the most.

Likewise with Tom Clancy novels, where i enjoyed titles such as Red Storm Rising, Without Remorse, Debt of Honor, Clear and Present Danger, Patriot Games, Cardinal of the Kremlin.

Also Thomas Harris’ Hannibal, John Le Carre’s Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy.

Ang mga yan po ay hiram and/or bili sa u.k. [ukay-ukay].:smiley:

Nakakamiss din mga mathematics at design books noon sa school. Pampabilis ng memory gap, hihihi.:bonk:

And syempre pa, ang kinahiligan nung kabataan, Komiks, Pinoy Pla:shutup:…Liwayw ay, and Bannawag.:smiley: Assuss, hindi na po pala libro ito…

Actually, I’m more into John Grisham novels. Nasimulan kong basahin yung Bourne Identity, tapos iba nga siya sa movie, and mukhang exciting. Yung isang nabasa kong book ni Ludlum na hindi Bourne ay yung “Scarlatti Inheritance”.

Fave ko din si Mario Puzo (Godfather, Sicilian, Omerta, etc). Suki rin ako sa “Booksale” dati, meron bang equivalent dito sa Japan nun? English books.

Sa Fantasy genre naman, Sword of Truth series. Gusto ko rin sanang simulan yung Wheel of Time kaso, dapat tapusin ko muna SoT. :smiley:

Ah, yes po. John Grisham is also a top caliber. Hindi naman ako into Law, pero nung nabasa ko ilang books, dun ko nakita ang exampol brilliance ng mga attorneys. Bilib naman ako, as in.

As for me, mas gusto ko basahin keysa yung translated na sa movie yung nobela. Kasi mas maganda imagination ko sa mga scenes keysa kay direk.:yikes::brush: Haha, no. its that I read over and over again para mafeel ko nang husto yung gusto kong part.

Hmmm, galing naman yang Italian Yakuza nyo. Di pa ako nkakabasa nyan, sa palabas lang. Im sure its so good. I also like those underworld gangster stories.

I think mayrun din nyan tindahan ng mga second hand books dito, english included. hindi po kasi ako nakakagala masyado. dito sa amin is mayrong store na “book off” pero di ko pa napasok hihihi. malalaking stores ng cd’s and books so i guess merun non. Kung gusto ko magbasa, nagpapahanap na lang ako ng libro sa atin tapos padala via EMS kasama ng ibang padala.

Spellsinger Book 1 lang nabasa ko sa mga pantasya. Ok na ok din fantasy paminsan minsan para maiba naman. Authored by Alan Dean Foster, about some rockstar youth junkie na naging hero.

Next to bulakbol and toma noon sa atin, magbasa din gusto ko. sa akin, its a worthwhile hobby. Kaya lang sa ngayon dahil sa work, gone are those days when I had the luxury of time na kahit maghapon nagbabasa lang ginagawa. Mahal na kasi oras dito kaya madalang na lang.:smiley:

E, kung ikaw kaya ang ma rape tapos quits2 na lang? Ano mararamdaman mo? Magpaliwanag ka! Buti sana kung ang rapist e kasing gwapo ni Wentworth Miller ng Prison Break! Hahahaha! mag pa apekto ba daw ba! Lukring!:smiley:

Haha… Me, I’ll read whatever I caught on hand. I’ve actually read books without understanding them, hehehe. Yes, because when I was young, there were no books at home available for my grab. What my uncle’s reading I read them too. My motto was, if the elders could finish this book for a sitting, then why can’t I? Oh di ba, challenge… So I read, trying hard not to fall asleep and feeling way too adult-like when I finished a book. What’s next was, use highfalutin words in a sentence… hehe, but… Sigh, I had so much fun with my girlfriends back grade school days.

Anyway, I always love classical literature. I simply adore the characters, the mild language, medieval period… Victorian era… knight in shining armor… I think I am dreaming already:confused: Because I don’t have anything to read here;)

I would say for ChickLit try Cecelia Ahern’s " If you could see me now…" it’s the wonders of a child’s imagination(?) and why grown ups don’t have it, and what will you give to have it back, it’s funny, interesting ,light but it comes to the point where you don’t want to put it on hold…:rolleyes:

hello po, makisali na po. mahilig din po ako sa books. pinakapaborito ko po ay “THE SECRET OF SHAKESPEAR” dito ko nabili sa bookstore malapit sa amin.
favorite ko kasi si WILLIAM SHAKESPEAR. actually, naghahanap ako ng "DON QUIXOTE na libro… baka po cno meron dyan. bilhin ko nalang… mahirap kasi maghanap ng english novel dito sa lugar namin.
pinaka latest ko pong nabasa ay “THE LETTERs FOR EMILY” maganda rin po story.

Hi everyone! how was your Christmas ? Just taking a short break from reading this great suspenseful mystery book that I got for Christmas. I’m halfway through it and I can’t wait to share it with you guys. The book is “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo” by Stieg Larrson. I’ve been glued to it all day and so far it’s been great - i’m hooked. Just finished reading the book - what a plot of a thriller novel and what a terrific story telling. I can’t wait for the 2nd and 3rd installments of this trilogy to be published in english.

Hi,

Is there anybody here willing to lend me a copy of “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” by Kiyosaki? I would like to read it but I don’t want to buy it. I’m near Akabane Kita-ku Tokyo area. I promise to return it as soon as I’m done with it. Thanks already.

Para hindi off-topic…
