Here’s the pile of books I haven’t finished reading… forever.
In-House Design in Practice: Obviously Non fiction, Graphic Design, probably bought around 2012, reason for not reading: I lost interest in In-House Design when I entered a Marketing company but I will read this again after I’m done with the Novels (maybe)
Astray by Emma Donoghue: Novel, Bought at Fullybooked when it was on a 50% off Renovation Sale just this year, reason for not reading: haven’t opened it yet and I was finishing This is How You Lose Her by the time I got this.
A Wild Sheep Chase by Haruki Murakami: a gift from Keith because I originally lent her my Wild Sheep Chase and she bought me a new one after a year.
The Open Gate of Mercy by Fr. Joseph Maier: Heartwarming true stories of people living in Bangkok’s Main Slaughterhouse, a glimpse of life in Klong Toey slums, reason for not reading: I lost this book, I just recently found it.
Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell: Bought around 2010! I was so excited about this when it had been released in the Philippines, but I also got so busy at school. I was reading One Hundred Years of Solitude along with other novels until I forgot about this.
Ilustrado by Miguel Syjuco: Bought around 2010 as well, after a few chapters I lost interest on it, probably busy with school stuff too. I’m not very much drawn to the story though I believe it’s a good one. I’d read this again this year.
The Best Of Chico & Delamar’s The Morning Rush Top 10 part 1: a year 2012 Christmas gift I got from Karen. I know this is an easy one but I just….. can’t finish it. Probably already knew most of the jokes inside this book? Yes? still a good funny book if you’re planning to get one or the part 2 🙂
What The Dog Saw by Malcolm Gladwell: This belongs to A but it has been sitting on my shelf for so long. I plan to finish the Outliers first(which I do not know when :P)
The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand: The book I’ve dreamt of reading since Highschool. This copy belongs to My best friend’s sister. Though I’ve once highly enjoyed reading this, I couldn’t bring myself to pick it up again. What a daunting read. I promise myself to finish it this year too.
Eating Fire and Drinking Water by Arlene J. Chai : bought it at 70% off sale, which I am very happy about because this is the only book I could admit that I didn’t really… enjoy? It’s not you, It’s me. I’m not into political topic but I’ll give this book another chance someday.
Lumayo Ka Nga Sa Akin by Bob Ong: Bob Ong’s final book before he rest in peace.
There are still a bunch of Non-fiction on my shelf but it’s ok not to include on the list.
