Urgh, and I thought tagging was so last year. But no, I got tagged in Facebook, where else? After giving it thought, I decided to share here what I listed down. Anyhoo, here's part of the mechanics of the tag:
Don't take too long to think about it. Thirty books (providing you've read 30 or more than 30 books) you've read that will always stick with you. List the first 30 you can recall in no more than thirty minutes.

Hmmm, heavy in fantasy and South American fiction, plus a sprinkling of horror, (quasi) Christian historicity, inspirational stuff, and an odd classic or two thrown in. I'd be proud of my reading list. My mom, on the other hand, would shiver at the thought of the pulps I consume.
Mom: And you're reading your dragons again! (Inspecting the Stephen King) You read too much horror and comic books. Why don't you try going over more classics or even Proust.
*insert rolls eyes here*
Oh Mom dearest, if it were up to me, I'd really rather read Chika-Chika and Valentino! lolz
