Biography books because it is the only way to get to know some of the bad and great people who walked on earth. “ - Espie Vitug, Executive Office

"The Summer That Was by Sandra Scoppettone. I lost the book in college because I lent it.

"Memoirs of a Geisha [by Arthur Golden]. Kasi ang dami kong natutunan about geishas. I also love Tuesdays with Morrie kasi for every chapter may lesson about life.

"Books by Nicholas Sparks and Sidney Sheldon. I love to read love stories." - Carol Acebron, Legal

Its profound message of living your ‘personal legend’ gave me the determination and the drive to keep on pursuing my dreams no matter how hard they may be [to achieve]. It simply gave my life meaning and purpose.” - Carl Martin Jimenez, Journals

"Angela’s Ashes by Frank McCourt. It didn’t need to use flowery, poetic words to be deep, witty and inspiring. He’s just like casually talking about his childhood.” - Regina Bongat, Healthcare

The Naughtiest Girl in the School by Enid Blyton. It really got me into reading. I read it noong grade school pa ako. Siguro yung pagkaaliw ko ‘dun sa story I thought I’d find in every book I’d read kaya yun! I like Matilda also. Children’s lit yata ang gusto ko, ha ha!”Joyce Guevarra, Healthcare

Welcome to the Monkey House by Kurt Vonnegut. It’s an anthology of short stories. It’s rare to have an anthology in which I find all the stories excellent.”Mahros Abaño, Healthcare

When Lightning Strikes. It’s a romance novel. Not actually my favorite, but I like the plot of the story.”Fem Tipo, Content
