———–

So how do I score? Yikes, u might think, either, I’m too bored to kill time or I am too boring to have read most of the classics, huh?! Read most of Tolkeins, all of Austen’s, most of Elliot’s and Fitzgerald’s, most of Dicken’s and Tolstoy’s, even Hugo’s. I probably own half of these classics.

Siguro naman after seeing some of my collections here, e, convinced naman kayo? Hahaha….

(partida yan,nde pa complete at updated yan! ADDICT, e!!!)
