Hello there, blogosphere! How’s everyone doing? I’ve been super busy the past couple of days but I wanted to squeeze in a book haul post before leaving (this will probably be my last blog post from Manila). First, I got this lovely little book from my good friend Chris:
Thanks for the surprise, Chris! Looking forward to reading it. Next, I got a package from another good friend, Celina:
Thanks for sending these right before I left, Celina! I already have a copy of EWein’s The Winter Prince but it’s a really old paperback and I wanted a better edition. I’ve heard good things about Among Others by Jo Walton so I’m excited to read it. Last but not the least is a copy of Tibak Rising: Activism in the Days of Martial Law edited by Ferdinand C. Llanes:
A collection of essays written about those who fought against Martial Law in the Philippines. I have a contribution in this book, something that I wrote back when I was in school about my dad. If this seems like the kind of book you’d enjoy reading, I hope you pick up a copy in local bookstores.
That’s it for me. Will try to post another update when I have some free time! Maybe I can talk about books I’ve managed to include in my luggage. What about you, what books have you received recently?
