I will never read...
« on: August 25, 2010, 01:46:27 AM »
What genre or any particular books you will never read?

For those who read those books, please don't judge lol Let's respect each other's opinions.

No offense meant to the fans but I really don't feel like reading the Tagalog Romance pocketbooks. Yung may mga lovers na slightly naked sa cover. Yung tipong ang title ay, Yapusin Mo Ako. Stuffs like those. :)

Hindi din ako nagbabasa ng tagalog pocket books now. Noon I read when I was still in HS. Ok naman story, pero nahihirapan ako magbasa sometimes. Some words ang lalim. He he At nakakabulol sa tongue (tongue twist) basahin like, napabuntunghininga si blah blah... LOL

Mga encyclopedias, text books di ako nag babasa nun. I can count lang din yung books that I read na non-fiction. Mostly fiction books talaga binabasa ko.

Before I don't read fantasy books but now, I do.

Same here. Di na ako nagbabasa ng mga Tagalog pocketbooks. As far as I can remember, last time na nagbasa ako nun eh HS ako & that was 12 years ago. Masyado kasing madrama eh. ;D My life has too much drama, ayoko ng dagdagan pa.

i dnt usually read tagalog pocketbooks din.
pero sometimes, medyo idealistic so i tend to read parang support din sa filipino writers.

Will never read again - The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini
It gave me nightmares, di ko type ang plot ng story, too morbid for me, ayoko na basahin sana kaso, naintriga na din ako e, at pinagsisihan ko ang pag feed sa curiosity ko.

I'm biased lol I don't read Tagalog romance pocketbooks kasi may mga lines na nakakatawa talaga kahit serious yung moment and romance novels na may lalake or babae na kung ano man ang ginagawa nila na cover.

And horror novels too just because I don't get scared so useless basahin.

Side kwento lol
My former neighbor found out that I love to read. I was reading classic novels at that time. Sabi niya she will lend me her books. Ayun pala puro Tagalog romance pocketbooks hehe Pinaiwan ko nalang ng matagal sa house para kunwari binasa ko.

LOL  hindi pala ako nag-iisa!!!

I will not read autobiographies nor biographies of trashy people like Paris Hilton.   
What else won't I read?  Cheap, mababaw porn.  But if expensive porn ... hehe, oh my grief!  I will read.   lol

I'm just not that interested in the harry potter series. Nakabasa naman ako ng 1-1/2 of the 7(?) books to find out for myself what all the brouhaha was all about, at wala nko balak basahin yung iba.

Historical novels..

Nicholas Sparks novels..

Dito pala ako me karamay. Di ko rin maatim na basahin ang Twilight series.

Tagalog romance - sinimulan ko noon ang isa dahil sa raves ng kakilala ko pero... hindi talaga eh :P di ako nakalampas ata ng 5 pages.

Science fiction - sumasakit ulo ko dito, it bores me to bits hehe

I tried reading harry potter book one before pero i gave up.  I never read the 2nd book.  Same with Twilight.  Plot pa lang parang mababaw na sa akin.  I'd rather read something by Haruki Murakami or Sidney Sheldon. I would love to try reading tagalog pocketbooks though kasi madali matapos kasi kokonti pages. he he he
