This is not a book blog.
Well, at least that’s not what it was originally supposed to be. Which would explain why the title and tagline of the blog doesn’t go with anything else.
As the title of the blog implies, I am an anthropologist (academically) who, ironically, isn’t too crazy about people. Yes, it’s possible.
I have had this blog for a long time, which I have moved from other blog hosting sites – friendster, blogger, and now wordpress. Despite what it looks like now, I originally intended this blog to be for my rants and raves – mostly rants, about everything, from books, to movies, to places, events, and most especially, people (and the things they do to annoy me). Those are the things I enjoy most in life (except people).
On occasion, I would post about movies, events, and books that made an impact on me; thoughts and ideas. Then I noticed that majority of my posts were about books. And so, because reading seems to be the only thing I care enough to write about, the site evolved into a book blog.
But that doesn’t mean I won’t be posting rants and raves about other things.
So, thanks for stopping by, look around, read what interests you, and comment as it pleases you.

I love LOVE your blog. Especially the tag line. Alas, for Harry, it’s mischief managed. Sigh. Sooo glad I discovered it. Also, thank you for the comment. That’s how I found you. Word Hits
Thanks for commenting as well 🙂 Yes, sadly, it is mischief managed for HP…maybe I should change the tagline now…lol. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find something worth your time and effort…believe me there probably won’t be much hahaha. I like your blog as well…I’m looking forward to reading more on there 🙂
Don’t change the tagline…it’s eternal. Have really enjoyed reading your archive of posts. I love that you have a category called rants…I hope there will be more of them. 😉 Also loved Lost in Austen!!
haha thank you, you are too kind 😛
I only wanted to say I love your blog! So I’m gonna suscribe to it right now 🙂 And by the way, thank you for reading ours 😉
Thanks! I like blog too so I subscribed to it when I was there yesterday. We have a lot in common when it comes to books, movies and series…Big Bang Theory!! yay! Looking forward to reading more from you guys.
Ohh, I LOVE The Big Bang Theory! ♥
Sheldon’s a genius in so many levels 😀
Yep..I ❤ Sheldon!!
HI there! I spotlighted you as one of my favorite book blogs!
Don’t have your email so hope you get this
Thanks so much! I really don’t know what to say! lol. I’m really surprised because it’s like I write things without really thinking if people read them or like them or appreciate them and most of the time I feel like I’m boring people with the stuff I rant about. What a pleasant surprise. It really made my day! 🙂
Someone nominated me for the versatile blogger award, so I’m passing it along to you!
Lol…thanks for that…I don’t think I really deserve the nomination but I’ll do the required task.
I’ve nominated you for the Versatile Blogger award.
I hope you accept!
Thank you for being a part of my day,
Thanks! Hmmm…You know, I think someone already nominated me for this a few months ago and I said I would accept…and did, actually, but I forgot all about posting the stuff for it. So now I’m confused – if I got two nominations do I acknowledge the first nomination or yours or can I do both?
A blog worth bookmarking. Hoping to see more from you 🙂
Hi, I am kind of like you, maybe. I wanted to write about a variety of topics but ended up mostly writing about anime almost exclusively. I think something beyond conscious will controls what we write about, or something! However, thanks for the like and I hope to read your posts.
Thanks for visiting! Yeah, I just read mostly and watch anime, but for some reason, I never felt the need to review anime – until now.
We are quite the same here 🙂
I too blog about many things…I could never belong in only book blogger or movie blogger or any specific blogger.
Nice to meet you 🙂
Thanks for dropping by…and thanks for the comments!
I love your blog, so you’ve been nominated for the Liebster Award. For more information please see http://wp.me/p2Y7aN-96
Wow, thanks! I’m honored 🙂
Thanks for stoppin by my blog and recommended those other Gaiman’s books. Your blog is very interesting: I’m your new follower and will be looking forward to those reviews, whatever they are 🙂
Thanks, ditto! Glad I discovered your blog as well.
Hello and Happy Chinese New Year!!!
Hope you have a wonderful year of the HORSE. (I’m actually extra excited about this b/c hoping it will bode well for the Denver Broncos football team in Sunday’s Super Bowl.)
Kung Hei Fat Choi!! Have a great year of the horse!
Just stumbled across your blog, added to a growing list of blogs that make me feel inadequate for not reading more books. Now I know where bookish folk have disappeared to with the decline of eclectic little bookshops (at least in my corner of the universe). I have a degree in anthropology but focused on our nonhuman cousins, followed by a degree in philosophy which was marred by the eternal smugness of a 20 something who had no BIG questions. That was a long time ago. Now I have a fledgling blog which has been highjacked by some recent madness (my own I’m afraid) but I suspect more than a few bookish reflections will emerge.
Like your eclectic tone. Good to know these blog things can evolve.
Thanks…I hope I can provide you with some entertainment through my ramblings.
I took up Physical Anthropology but was more interested in the osteology / forensic part. I realized that people are more interesting when they’re dead….in the scientific sense, not in the I’m-a-psychopath sense. You know what I mean….
Thanks for helping me how to read the chaos that is S. It’s just an explotion!
Oh, you’re welcome. Hahaha! Did you enjoy the book?
I just discover your blog by chance, actually, by google search. I am interested in your post about books, will take my time to read then. thanks
Okay, but can I ask you a question, are you Philipino?
Hm, I made a plan that I want to read Southeast Asian author’s books, could you recommend some from your country? best seller/popular/touch stories. I would be grateful for your suggest. Thanks
Try the Rosales Series by F. Sionil Jose, but it’s a classic, family epic. There is also Butch Dalisay and Nich Joaquin among other literary authors, and Bob Ong among authors popular among the younger generations.
Thank you 😛
By the way, I’m not Filipino, I can’t read books in your language, but thanks for your suggestion anyway.
The ones I told you are all in English.
Hi! Do you accept book review requests?
I’ve actually never tried it before…
Glad to discover another human who doesn’t like humans, and also likes to talk about books.
I came across your blog and I can’t seem to find you email. I was wondering that you could give a review for my novel. It is heavily influenced by JRPG games and Anime. So i was thinking you might actually enjoy it!
Feel free to send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
(By the way I am also a Filipino)

Sure, sounds interesting! I sent you an email.
