No to Book Blockade

I was so disheartened when I came across with the news that the Philippine Bureau of Customs is now on the move to put tax on imported books.  I find it really disturbing why the government would go as far as this.  Obviously, lots of people express disgust about it.  Personally, books should be exempted from import taxes to make it less accessible and cheaper to the public.  In this way, we nurture a growing reading public.

Reading books, whether local or international, still promotes knowledge in any way.
