Addicted To PinoY POCKETbooks...

My fellow kababayans can relate to this. I started reading Pinoy pocketbooks(written by Filipino writers in Filipino) I love reading one especially those when the lead girl is very pitiful and she is very hurt and then her knight in shining armor comes. I started to read again this week. KRISTINE SERIES is one of my all time favorite which is written by MARTHA CECELIA. She is a very known and a good writer. I like how she makes stories and the way the characters link together. You will never get bored. Unlike some of those pocketbooks where you will get bored because the stories are common with MARTHA CECILIA you would be looking for more... I hope that there would be an english version of these books to recognize filipino romance writers... What about you what's your favorite?

I'm not a fan of pocketbooks but I know people who loves and are addicted to read Pinoy pocketbooks. I lopve reading books but never got to the point of reading pinoy pocketbooks. If it were that good as you say then I hope it would be recognize all over the world so we could have another thing to be proud of

When it comes to "Tagalog" I read Filipino Comics. I usually read novels, classic English novels. I've read two Tagalog novels before. It was "Lalaki sa Dilim"(Man in the Dark) and Kangkong 1986(A novel about how Filipinos prepared for a revolution in 1986). I also read Bob Ong's works

I know lots of people who are very addicted with Pinoy pocketbooks. But I seldom borrow them because not all of them have good stories. And they have portions that are too carnal. But I remember one book I've read and like it, the author is a Pinay (forgot her name) but it was written mostly in English. I think the title was "The Break Up Diaries".

I'm sure not everyone will like reading Tagalog pocketbooks because they belong to a different market. However, if you are to think of the Filipino market as a whole, of which majority belong to the poverish segment. I'm sure they would love to read stories of this kind, characters that are oppressed and poor and eventually managed to redeem themselves out of poverty, etc.
