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.
