The University of Hawaii has decided to release their out-of-print titles about some Philippine languages under a Creative Commons 4.0 license.

Translation: free books, everyone :)

Languages covered under this series include:

Bicol

Cebuano

Hiligaynon

Ilocano

Kapampangan

Pangasinan

and one textbook in Tagalog

and are either textbook/tutorial, grammar reference or dictionaries (depends on the langauge...for example, the Tagalog title is just a textbook, but there's no separate grammar or dictionary title).

Titles are available in both PDF and EPUB format.

That's pretty cool. I may eventually check out Cebuano.

I'm reading the Malazan Book of the Fallen.

I love Cebuano. If I'd stuck around in the Bisayas I'dve learned it. I've always found it a bit more straight forward than Tagalog. Has fewer aspects and conjugations for verbs but nouns do a few funky things that Tagalog doesn't. Magbinisaya kita is a fairly popular textbook and the Cebuano language packet from the Peacecorps are also good starters.
