I read books and that’s the purpose of creating this blog, to share my love of books and be enjoyed by everyone. So this is a page for the list of my books read this year (2012) specifically foreign books and literary Filipino books from fiction to non-fiction. First of all, I don’t categorize my books depending on existing genres or categories except either fiction or non-fiction. Pocketbooks, small sized romance pocketbook, are not included on the list. Graphic novels (For Manga and Manhwa, check the Manga and Manhwa page), picture books and pamphlets are included on the list. For the list of pocketbooks I read this year (2012), please go to Pocketbook section under Record.
