Q: Summer Reading. What was your favorite book that you were REQUIRED to read when you were in school?

A: In high school, our Filipino teachers would tell us to read Noli Me Tangere (junior) and El Filibusterismo (senior)--a two-book series written by Jose Rizal, our National Hero--for our discussions. It never became my favorite but I appreciated it. Apart from that, there's not one book they required us to read, elementary or high school. Since I live in a country different from you, maybe it's not part of our curriculum. But still, my love for reading blossomed and I don't think it will ever die. :)



*It will be very much appreciated if you follow my Networked Blogs at the same time. I'll be glad to return the favor. :) But if you can't, GFC alone's fine. Thank you!!

  1. I have the same "problem" as you. I went to school in the Netherlands, so all those required titles weren't really required here. I've never heard of the titles you choose. New follower (GFC and NB)

    1. Oh, it's because it's a Filipino novel. But they said that it was originally written in Spanish. :)

      Thanks for following!
