Packing My Books

I’ve been too busy with other things to write anything here lately. Given Hello.Lenin!’s beginnings as a personal blog about books (before it gradually evolved into something else), allow me to show some of my books that I’ve packing to fill in the gap in postings. These will all be sent to my family’s house in Cebu:


In the meantime, here are some of the few books remaining with me here in Iloilo:

  1. I hope that i can have the book entitled the Wretched of the Earth by Frantz Fanon and the Pedadogy of the Opressed by Paulo Freire , two books that indicted colonialism, neo-colonialism and injustice. I also want to had Lenin’s The State and Revolution. I will read this in my enlightenment and education about the people’s struggle for national freedom, democracy, social justice.

  2. I also want the book of Gabriel Garcia Marquez entitled “One Hundred Years of Solitute”.It is all about the magical depiction of the social realities in Colombia, the country that has the longest “communist insurgency” in the world. Philippines is second.

    1. You moght want to read Jose Ma. Sison’s Struggle for National Democracy, Amado Guerrero’s Philippine Society and Revolution, and Armando Liwanag’s Stand for Socialism Against Modern Revisionism. That is if you haven’t yet. All very good books by Fanon, Freire, Lenin, and Marquez you have listed there. Padayon!
