May 2022 Tsundoku Reportage

Just a very quick tsundoku reportage of recent purchases, more for accountability. Looking at this as my version of daily body check photos of people determined to work-out with regularity, to push themselves to keep with the habit.

  1. The Illustrated Man by Ray Bradbury– I started reading this in my palm pilot back in 2003, which made me realize that reading on digital devices is not my thing. Bejeweled and Insaniquarium were just too distracting!
  2. The Philippines Is Not A Small Country by Gideon Lasco- who was a year younger than me in the UP College of Medicine. Able to finish 4 essays so far.
  3. Rampa by Danton Remoto- who always writes very engaging essays. Also, how could I resist a P50 book in National.
  4. Butch Dalisay’s A Richness of Embarrassments and other Easy Essays- some of the lighter-themed essays from his column in the Philippine Star. Most specially love those about his travels, fountain pen, and typewriters.
  5. What I Wanted To Be When I Grow Up by Christina Pantojo-Hidalgo
  6. Mikrobyong Maliit, Pandemyang Pasakit- by my good buddy Dr. Jondi Buensalido, an infectious disease specialist. I could hear his voice reading these poems. Poems about COVID with a historical perspective.
  7. Penmanship by Butch Dalisay
  8. Kissing Through A Handkerchief and Other Travel Tales- by Dr. Alice Sun-Cua, a traveller, OB-gynecologist, essayist. Can’t wait to take a crack at this!
  9. To Love Another Day: The Memoirs of Cory Aquino- In keeping with this month’s themes of never forgetting and hoarding stuff that will attempt to foil forgetfulness!
  10. Beauty’s Punishment by Anne Rice aka AN Roquelaure- Recommended search terms: vegetables, holes, welts, slapping, fucking, punishment, sucking, pain, pleasure, sex sex sex. Sex.
