This baby just came in a few days ago:
Whoohoo! This book isn’t available here in the Philippines so I had to order it from Amazon, have it sent to my aunt, who then packed it in a balikbayan box with all of the other stuff she’s sending home. It took about a month to get here but at least I saved a bunch on shipping. Haha. It’s really depressing that we don’t have books like this available here, considering that the Philippines has amazing marine biodiversity. Sigh. Then there’s also the matter of “A Guide to the Birds of the Philippines” by Kennedy et. al, (IMHO) the most comprehensive book out there on birds found in the Philippines, being out of stock here. Here, the country whose birds are featured! Arggghhh.
