Brief Description: Hi! We are Mary, Myra, and Fats. While we are spread out across three countries, we are Filipinas who have the passion and love for books. GatheringBooks is a resource devoted to celebrate timeless narratives written for the young-at-heart. Through our passion for the written word we wish to develop a collection of our favorite picture books for children (and grown-ups too!) and young adult (YA) literature (as well as some adult fiction)—and share this with fellow book-lovers, inspired teachers, and enthusiastic parents who are aware of the power of narrative and storytelling in shaping and molding young minds.

Favorite Authors: Jon Sciezka, Lane Smith, Colin Thompson, Clive Barker, Isabel Allende, Jane Austen, Haruki Murakami, F.Sionil Jose, Ambeth Ocampo, Nick Hornby, Neil Gaiman, C.S Lewis, Trenton Stewart, Eoin Colfer, Jerry Spinelli, E.L. Konigsburg, Shel Silverstein, Jostein Gaarder, Paulo Coelho, JK Rowling, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, James Thurber, Rumer Golden
