BY Gillian Reyes Dalawang mata para sa dalawang kagandahan na nakita ko noong araw na iyon: ang aklatan na kay daming aklatan at siya. Pero dito muna magtatapos ang kwento namin. Mas pinagbigyan pansin ko ang mga libro dahil mas mahal kong magbasa sa edad kong iyon. SIguro sa susunod na linggo pero ngayon, yung[…]
