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...

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