    Ang middle to upper class ayaw matawag na jologs kaya hindi nag babasa ng Tagalog.


    Ang middle to upper class na nasa rich school hindi nagbabasa ng pinoy english literature kasi hindi ina-assign ng teacher na burgis.


    Middle to upperclass na na assign ng pinoy english lit eh see these authors as assigments.


    Ang masa walang pera pambili ng libro. Walang oras pumunta ng national library para mang hiram. At ang mga baranggay walang public library

    Wouldn’t it be much easier to find kung may sarili sya category? Filipiniana. It’s the same if it were Japanese, of Korean, or if you were at Kinokuniya looking for English books.


    Ang difference kasi, yung international books may translated local language sa kinokuniya

    isama na rin siguro ‘yung dami ng mga napo-produce (at napo-promote na pinoy lit) sa mga major bookstores sa bansa. kayang kainin, let’s say, ng buong nancy drew series ang mga libro na pinoy na nalathala sa taong 2013.
