About meI'm into visual studies. If I can, I'd just live happily among my books, with no one and nothing else, save for the most basic necessities. Books are easier to deal with, because they depend so much on you(r reading of them).

"Literature is otherness, and as such alleviates loneliness. We read not only because we cannot know enough people, but because friendship is so vulnerable, so likely to diminish or disappear, overcome by space, time, imperfect sympathies, and all the sorrows of familial and passional life." --Harold Bloom, "How to Read and Why"

About my libraryI've been keeping my books since I was old enough to read, so you'll find a smattering of children's books, as well as obscure ones.

I met a Man as I went walking:
We got talking,
Man and I.
"Where are you going to, Man?" I said
(I said to the Man as he went by).
"Down to the village, to get some bread.
Will you come with me?" "No, not I."

I met a horse as I went walking;
We got talking,
Horse and I.
"Where are you going to, Horse, today?"
(I said to the Horse as he went by).
"Down to the village to get some hay.
Will you come with me?" "No, not I."

I met a Woman as I went walking;
We got talking,
Woman and I.
"Where are you going to, Woman, so early?"
(I said to the Woman as she went by).
"Down to the village to get some barley.
Will you come with me?" "No, not I."

I met some Rabbits as I went walking;
We got talking,
Rabbits and I.
"Where are you going in your brown fur coats?"
(I said to the Rabbits as they went by).
"Down to the village to get some oats.
Will you come with us?" "No, not I."

I met a Puppy as I went walking;
We got talking,
Puppy and I.
"Where are you going this nice fine day?"
(I said to the Puppy as he went by).
"Up to the hills to roll and play."
"I'll come with you, Puppy," said I.
Thanks for accepting..I hope we can share our views on this site..
oh sure! :) i've been wanting to get rid of that since college. hahaha.
i haven't read the noel alumit book yet -- just got it through bookmooch recently. but a friend recommended it.
Where do you usually buy your Filipinianas?
Thank you! I will check these out...
Hello heterotropic, I stumbled into your page and am impressed by the number of FIlipiniana books! I was wondering if you have any good recommendations for pinoy short story anthologies?
Hi there, I've uploaded a cover for Aguinaldo's Breakfast. I will be scanning more Filipiniana publication covers for you and other LT-ers to use as I go along. I'm actually looking forward to the Christmas break to do this. :) Thanks.
Hello there. RE:

Where do you get your wonderful rare filipinianas? :) They're so great!

Some my sister and I grew up with (my mother's books), some are gifts by authors, others from second-hand bookstores and book sales of publishers, notably the UP Press and New Day Publishers, an activity I used to do more frequently back in college and pretty much when I had more time to scour for books. Thank you for your comment! :) - K Villa
i'm ashamed to say i don't think i have, and i don't even know any good names to start with. you should help me out!
yeah, i love checking out other libraries! your favorite authors are wonderful, at least the ones i've read...i'll have to check out the ones i haven't. (:
Hello. Thank you for your comment. I must say you have a highly commendable collection I hope to one day achieve myself. Cheers - K Villa
