    Bookay-Ukay Bookshop, Quezon City, Philippines. Drools! I was drooling over this bookshop along Maginhawa street near the University of the Philippines. It was a heavenly experience roaming around taking random shots of, yeah, HEAVEN! I’ve been living here for years, and I only found out that it’s just a few minutes away from home.

    Towers of books, fancy bookmark gallery (I’ll be showing them in the future posts so better stay tuned!) insane book installation, crazy typewriter installation, friendly owner, you name it… it’s the coolest bookshop in the neighborhood!

  4. "The difference between a Not Writer and a Writer is the difference between someone who *could* write and someone who *does*. A Not Writer is someone who experiences blocks and obstacles and timing issues and lets them prevent him or her from actually writing. A Not Writer may certainly be creative, insightful and capable of writing lyrical prose, but most of the time they’re too busy Not Writing to get any Writing done. That’s such a shame, such a waste, and that’s the reason I so often deploy Tough Love upon those who ask for advice."

    Alex Vance considers the problem of the Not-Writer, a fine addition to our ongoing archive on writing.  

    The daily routines of famous writers should leave little doubt that the single most important skill in writing is the art of showing up.

Although do the witches only talk about Macbeth? Do Ophelia and Gertrude only talk about Hamlet? Does the Nurse have a last name?? Goddamnit.

    New favorite site: Corpus Libris, which applies the concept of analog augmented reality to book covers. Best thing since Sorted Books.

  14. "We depend on our surroundings obliquely to embody the moods and ideas we respect and then to remind us of them. We look to our buildings to hold us, like a kind of psychological mould, to a helpful vision of ourselves. We arrange around us material forms which communicate to us what we need — but are at constant risk of forgetting what we need — within. We turn to wallpaper, benches, paintings and streets to staunch the disappearance of our true selves."

     - Alain de Botton, The Architecture of Happiness
