Reading Books at home in the RP

The question:  It's #World Book Day! Peace Corps Volunteers have lots of time to read.  What is the most memorable book you read during your service?
We got one of the last book lockers but there were several with the other volunteers nearby so we traded books with them.  I remember reading The Foundation Trilogy and the Martian Chronicles, but the book that got used the most was Fanny Farmer.  In fact when I went home on emergency leave I bought 2 more copies to give to host friends.  Every time someone went to Manila we would buy new sci-fi books because we didn't have good access to English books out in the provinces.  I also bought copies of  Jose Rizal's books, Nole Me Tangre and El Filibustrismo in English.
