Whats your favorite book you have read?

Readers are plentiful: thinkers are rare.
* Harriet Martineau

My favorite author is JD Salinger. I've read all books his written. Of course, of all his books, ang number one favorit ko ay Catcher in the Rye, second is Nine Stories.

Sa American movies laging may reference sa mga books ni JD Salinger. Remember that Mel Gibson and Julia Roberts movie where Mel has to read the Catcher in the Rye -- everytime he is triggered to k*ll someone? Or Will Smith's "Nine Degrees of Separation"?

Satisfy your curiousity. Find out what the hoopla is all about!

You have JD Salinger's books? I hope I could meet you so I could borrow :D User ba? :D j/k

Well peeps dapat may book club tayo so we could borrow books from one another. If I had the money, I'll have a two story room filled with a wall to wall bookshelf yung tipong I need a ladder to get some of the books at the top shelf.

I've collected all of JD Salinger's books. But my brother is keeping them for me in his house in Laguna (I go there on weekends). Yung 'Catcher in the Rye' ko, yun pa ang original na binabasa ko sa UP (15 yrs ago), when I was still deciding to drop out of school... kaya nga siguro natuloy. BAD TRIP!

I've got both those books too, though I've only read a few of the stories in Nine Stories. "The Laughing Man" is may fave of those I've read.

I always thought that "The Catcher in the Rye" is a 'boy' book. Never found a girl before who actually enjoyed it. Puno kasi ng male angst yun eh. Yung "Nine Stories" pa, medyo gender neutral... but I'm glad you enjoyed it Fire, I'm pleasantly surprised.

Last book I read was "Dilbert" by Scott Adams (yes, the cartoon guy!). Very funnny, especially if you have a stupid boss, you can really relate to this.
