    Since di naman ako bookworm, goals ko na lang this 2013 eh at least 10 books for this year. Para medyo achievable. :glee:
  • @japspt woah! Ang dami nung 40 books pero sana kaya ko rin yan. Since I'll be graduating in March, wala nang school works so more time to read. :)

    My goals
    -read 3 books/month or at least 36 books sa buong taon.
    -read 1 Filipino novel/month
    -Matapos ang A Song of Ice and Fire
    -Collect all Paulo Coelho books

    So far 1/36 na. Just finished Mitch Albom's Have a Little Faith.

    - hunger games (ako na ang nahuli sa 'uso' :glee:)
    - start reading some haruki murakami and paulo coelho (any recommendations to start it off? yung pang-newbie level lang muna.)
    - continue reading novels by canadian authors :bungi:
  • ^Start with The Alchemist or Veronika Decides to Die.

    Hindi ka nag-iisa sa Hunger Games. :)
  • bookworm din ako. *okay*
    pero i can only read during april and may dahil kelangan ko mag-aral ng academic books :depressed:

    siguro goal ko muna for now is mabasa lahat ng academic books ko then i'll be posting my leisure books by april pag nagsimula na ako. :D i read ebooks nga pala dahil i have a dedicated ebook reader. :love:

    yes puro chick lits binabasa ko. haha! :p
  • Meron pa kasi akong tinatapos na video game so to be realistic, I'm planning to finish 10 books this year.
    My To-Read list this year
    - The Two Towers and The Return of the King, The Similarion and The Children of Húrin.
    - I might consider the History of Middle Earth as well... Yun nga lang I wonder if I could get my hands on a physical copy here in the Philippines
    - I might consider The Song of Fire and Ice series since I don't have time to watch the series.

  • I'd start mine with ASOFAI book 1 A Game of Thrones then the rest. Might take til June or July to finish. Hopefuly we see Martin's next installment within the year. :)

    1/50. the hobbit - jrr tolkien


    i read the lord of the rings first before i decided to give this a try. and after watching the movie (the hobbit), i wanted to revisit middle earth again.

    this is the nth time i've read this, and it hasn't lost its touch/beauty. in spite of the fact that i'm very familiar with the story, there were still surprises and hidden depths found anew. an epic and timeless adventure, indeed!

    re: the history of middle earth
    - hindi pa ako nakakakita ng copy ng book. i guess i have to start searching sa mga bookstores. nami-miss ko tuloy yung bookstore kung saan ako nakakakita nung mga 'rare' books.

    congrats pala naka first blood ka na hahaha. paborito ko yun si ggm at di ko masabi kung ano ang mas maganda sa cholera at hundred years of solitude. May mga nagsasabi na yung autumn of the patriarch yung pinakamaganda niyang nobela though di ko pa nababasa. Kung nagpunta ka nung warehouse sale ng NBS nakabili ako ng cholera halagang trenta, nabili ng kakilala ko yung autumn ng singkwenta wahahaha panalo :D:D
