PhotoHunt: Books

Another weekend, another round of PhotoHunt has arrived! This week’s theme carries with it a great significance for Pinoy book lovers because of the recent Book Blockade of 2009, and so obviously, it’s all about books!

Here’s my share, or rather stack of books for this week’s PhotoHunt:

My initial stack of books for this years reading list.

I do confess though, that I have not yet finished any of the books in that stack which I bought last January. The good start I had with The Federalist Papers was cut short by quite a controversial book, Holy Blood, Holy Grail by authors Michael Baigent, Richard Leigh and Henry Lincoln. Nonetheless, I’d have more reason to return to the The Federalist Papers now that I’m switching majors this coming June. More on all of that in a later post.

While the recent suspension of the Bureau of Customs’ taxation of imported books is a cause for celebrations, the Great Book Blockade of 2009 is just a reminder of how books are still valuable and indispensable commodities in our times. A direct impact on myself is that I’ve decided to really revive my reading habit with the intent of finishing at least 3 books of varied topics/subjects every quarter of the year. In fact, a new blog of mine is nearing launch that’s designed to help me stay on top of my reading list and to nurture the bookworm that is me. So watch out for that one!

In the meantime, enjoy the books, reading and the weekend everyone!
