Bo Yzolde Teruel CalañgiBooks bring me to a new world where no one else had been, to a country and culture miles away from where i am and a place only reachable by imagination with every lift of pages.
Jaeki Coffee TabuadaI love books because reading is part of my life’s journey, and i’m always learning from the authors. I find it quite enjoyable as well as relaxing. If you sit down with coffee and a good book to read on.
Ligaya Navidad-Espina books allow us to learn at our own pace, at our own leisure. It is the best backpack ‘entertainment’ since it requires no electricity nor a playmate
Ernest Genesis Mercado Guevara Books for me simply are the souls dwindling to teach us the experiences of the past. They are my friends of whom I find comfort during my struggles, but nevertheless they serve as my total conscience when I’m bound to do unlikely things. They simply cultivate my spirit. They give me wisdom and enlightenment. They make me smile when needed; and joy to sustain me through grief. They mirror me in every way. Simply books that I have and love represents people of different culture and nature, and also simply God’s way of placing inanimate and imaginative personas in my life with whom He had breath with life and wonderful music.
Ryan ReyesI love books because they take me to places i have never been to, meet persons i have never met and learn things i have never known.
(not that I hate to travel though, I stroll at the middle of the night sometimes just thinking about anything
Books have also been instrumental to shaping some of my core beliefs that up to this day ring true to who I am.
