Who bought it: Me. What is it: From what I gathered, I think it’s about the investigation of a Filipino writer’s death who probably met his tragic end because of his controversial manuscript. When: July 30, 2011 Where: National Book Store – Power Plant Why: I told myself that I should read a book by a Filipino author for the month of August. Why? In case you forgot or in case you are not a Filipino, August is the month when the Philippine national language is honored and celebrated. I should be reading a novel in the local language then, yes? I’m sorry, but I haven’t made up my mind yet regarding that. I have been so focused on English novels that I have not given local novels a serious thought. One day, I will come to that. How much: Php 230.50, 20% discount included.
