Books: What Louise de los Reyes, 4 other celebrities read
We were assigned to do a book report on Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s “The Little Prince” in school. I didn’t take it seriously at the time. Now I am rereading it. It offers a lot of lessons to young people like me. I can relate with the Little Prince. Like him, I also want to explore the world and experience new things. This book stimulates my imagination and raises questions I also wonder about. It’s a beautiful story.
I keep reading and rereading “Rules of the Game” by Neil Strauss. It’s a fun book and I really enjoy it. It’s mainly about the art of seduction and the best way to hit on girls. I’ve applied some of the tips in real life. Sometimes it works; sometimes the girls don’t get it. I suggest it to other young men who want to impress girls. I also recommend it to girls—so they would know what guys are up to.
I read the French version of the book “New Moon,” the second part in the “Twilight” series by Stephenie Meyer. In France, its title is “Tentation.” I like the twists and the tension between Edward Cullen the vampire and Jacob Black the werewolf. I usually get to watch the movie first before reading the book. But I often get disappointed. A lot of details that are in the novels are lost in the movies. For me, the books are more interesting. My dad bought “New Moon” for me in Europe.
I enjoy browsing through “Time for Kids: Almanac 2012” (from the editors of Time magazine). It’s my younger brother John Kimbert who reads this book, but I borrow it from time to time. I pick up a lot of interesting trivia from this book. I learn more about the pop stars I admire, like Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber. It’s fun and easy to read. I scan it whenever I feel bored. It’s full of facts, pictures, puzzles and games.
ANDREA DEL ROSARIO
Upon finding out that my newborn was sick, I jus kept crying. The nurse suggested this book, “When Things Fall Apart: Heart Advice for Difficult Times” by Pema Chodron. It really helped me overcome my doubts and fears. At that time, I felt as if I was free-falling. This book gave me something I could hold on to. It taught me how to meditate. I also learned to detach myself from the material world. There’s a touch of
Buddhism, but this book goes beyond religion. It’s very spiritual. This is the type of book that you should read over and over again. Bayani San Diego Jr.
