Literary 25

After tagged, you are supposed to write down 25 literary pieces that you cannot live without (doesn’t really matter if it’s a poem, a short story, a novel, an epic, or a play). Literary works that you can read over and over again. Works that will make Plato squirm in his deathbed, stand in front of you at 3 a.m. with his bony fingers pointed at you, telling you that you should not be affected by literature because you could end up dead in a war. Works that have inspired you to do something stupid, put your head inside an oven, go on the great American pancake tour (or great Filipino kakanin tour), or works that you can read over and over again in front of a crowd, at every book launch or reading. After, tag 25 of your literary companions, people who are also insane as you, and hope that this would spread like some goddamn bubonic plague.
