^ I'd call it a good read. Not a great read, but a good one. It's a fantastical version of Orwell's classic so if you're a fan of that, you'd at least appreciate it.

Been reading Stephen King's Under the Dome. I thought this thick book was gonna take 3 months to read being how busy I am at work and there's my PS Units and the attraction of the internet, but the book has gotten so interesting that I haven't played in 4 days.

I'm halfway na. King really knows how to depict the darkness that resides in humanity.

Anybody here reading Star Wars novels? I'm getting rid of my collection kasi.

San ba magandang magbenta ng 2nd hand books aside from selling it online?

Mabenta ba dun yung mga pocketbooks? Babaratin lang ata ako dun. Besides, kung benta ko man ito, tig 20 to 50 na lang siguro apiece. Balak ko talaga ibigay na lang eh. Kaya lang wala ako kilala na hardcore Star Wars fan para at least maaappreciate nya.

not sure eh, pero definitely babaratin ka nga talaga dun. Pero kung ako syo, sell it online na lang para talagang makapag presyo ka ng maayos at siguradong yung may same interest ang bibili nyan. You can also set your conditions para mas mapadali ang transaction like meetup locations, sked, etc para convenient for you kasi ikaw ang seller.

Either way, mas maigi na yun kesa yung dagdag kalat pa sa kwarto mo. :mrgreen:

Finished reading Under the Dome. The explanation of the Dome kinda left me unsatisfied.

I'll just play games until July 7. That's the date where Dexter is Dead gets released, the final book of Jeffrey Lindsay's Dexter series (You know, the good guy serial killer)

Nandito naman kaming mga taga-PPS. :sweat:

Kidding aside, yes sell it online na lang like eBay, OLX at FB.

Uhh...that might be a bad idea since you won't really get the kind of people who are willing to pay a price for books there. I would suggest either do ebay or something similar online.

Dumating na yung order ko na Bradygames Guide book ng Last of us Remastered. It looks complete but it could have been better if they just refrain from mentioning spoilers like who didn't make it. Meh.. it will do.

How should I get started in reading everything about Batman? What graphics novels should I read, gusto ko kasi malaman lahat ng history about Batman. Sino mga naging apprentice niya. How dick grayson became nightwing, paano namatay si Jason Todd and eventually became Red Robin and etc. Natapos ko na kasi lahat ng Arkham games and I want to dive deep on the franchise.

Basahin mo rin mga "one-shot" Batman stories...

my faves are

- Gotham By Gaslight
- The Many Deaths Of The Batman
- Batman: Ten Nights Of The Beats (vs KGBeast)

I am annoyed with all the GOT spoilers, I've stopped watching the show because I wanted to read Winds of Winter first, but all this sudden spoilers is annoying. Part of me understands GRRM's delays as art cannot be rushed, but I'm starting to lose patience after unknowingly reading that bit about Jon Snow. Grrrrrr
