With the five-day holiday ahead of us, the quiet hours would be best spent with a plethora of written words--Filipino books, in particular. So, us here at Speed put together a list of Filipino-published books in time for your holiday reading. Know more about them in the December 2013 issue of Speed, with our Top 50 Tech Newsmakers of 2013 and cover guy Derek Ramsay dishing out the tech guy's guide life.
Geek is the new sexy, we say here at Speed. And the world has come to terms with the Mark Zuckerbergs inheriting the earth. But for the non-billionaire geeks, the world has stayed pretty much the same—at least, according to Geek Tragedies by Carljoe Javier. This book is a collection of short stories from the perspective of mostly male geeks, with the exception of a model hired to be one of the girls who “prettify” comic-cons and a girl straight out of a slasher movie.
