No probs sis. Will start on it today. Di ko na nga lang binabasa mga reviews sa goodreads kasi puro 1/5 stars. Baka ma-discourage ako basahin.

Guys, I've been trying to catch up but wala talaga so I decided na mag take muna ng leave from the book club kase nakakahiya di na ako makasali sa reviews and other activities.  but I'm hoping to be back...

I love reading since nagkaisip ako. was able to read at at very young age. Kalungkot lang pag tumatanda na nawawala na yung time ko for reading. Good thing may Book Club sa GT! Hopefully, mabalik nya yung interest ko. I'd love to join!! ;D



^sis PHURPLE051! I wanna join, I made an account and sent a request na. (SERENA91) username ko. Gusto ko sana same sa GT username ko pero unavailable na daw. will wait for your confirmation! ;) THANKS!

Your past describes what and who you are today. Hence, those who experienced deep loneliness know what true happiness is. xx
