BOOK: Never Let Me Go
AUTHOR: Kazuo Ishiguro
OT: I finished reading book 4 of the Percy Jackson series this morning. I'm about to buy book 5 but there's this other book titled "The Demigod Files" that covers the time between book 4 and book 5. I read the preview for The Last Olympian on book 4 and I'm starting to think I should buy "demigod" first ._. What do you guys think?
words cant describe the first time i read this, so again tonight:
...still banned in some countries. whew!
"Color Categories in Thought and Language"
-Hardin and Maffi
Blurb: Twenty-five years ago, Berlin and Kay argued that there are commonalities of basic color term use that extend across languages and cultures, and probably express universal features of perception and cognition. In this volume, a distinguished team of contributors from visual science, psychology, linguistics and anthropology examine how these claims have fared in the light of current knowledge, surveying key ideas, results and techniques from the study of human color vision as well as field methods and theoretical interpretations drawn from linguistic anthropology.
The 48 Laws Of Power by Robert Greene.
Can't believe I never read this before.
Just started reading "We Were Soldiers Once...And Young" by Lt. Gen. Harold Moore (ret) and Joseph Galloway
A detailed account of the Battle of Ia Drang Valley, the first major battle between the US Army and the North Vietnamese Army (NVA) during the Vietnam war.
The movie version of the book (starring Mel Gibson) only covered the first part of the battle (at LZ X-Ray), but makes no mention of the second part of the battle (at LZ Albany).
Want by Rick Barot. Rick Barot is a Filipino-American poet and this is his second collection of poems.
at nagugustuhan ko siya, lalo na yung isang mahaba niyang tula, which has fragments for the Ormoc Flashflood Tragedy. ganda!
Masterpieces in Miniature

The Wind-up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami
I think everyone knows that Murakami's works are an escapist's route to fantasy. His stories are good, that is if you want to get lost in some metaphysical, sometimes dystopian, landscapes, with a good amount of mental stimulation. I'm tracing back his roots, so I got this one.
Well that was 5 months ago. And heck! I'm still stuck in this book until now. I just don't have the time to finish it.
As usual, this book doesn't entail a lot of explaining (even though per se, the stories are so preposterous), because it's damn inexplicable. For the time being, I need to finish it.
