At Fully Booked in High Street. I love love this picture. Reading has long been a love of mine. I could just spend a full day reading, be it a physical book or from my ereader (I know, poor eyes). We visited this Fully Booked branch in Bonifacio Global the other night after dining in Market Market and having a hell of an adventure rushing a friend to St. Luke’s Hospital. It turned out that she had hyperventilated and had lost all feeling in her hands and legs because of the lack of potassium in her bloodstream. So, a banana a day–any fruit, really–can indeed keep the doctor away!
Anyway, this particular branch is just in a word, IMPRESSIVE. It’s the biggest bookstore I’ve ever visited, with 5 floors, each one featuring and holding different items. The book collection is extensive and comprehensive; I could definitely just get lost there for hours–happily! I saw titles I just didn’t think I could and had lost hope to find. Titles like Anya Seton’s Green Darkness (first published in 1972, although they most likely have released a new edition), for example. And The First Time by Joy Fielding (2000 Pocket Star Books). And this store even has a Starbucks, a theater room, an impressive graphic novels section, and a kiddie reading room inside. AWESOME right? Experiencing this particular branch has converted me into a fan for life. I don’t think I’m going to renew my National Book Store Loyalty Card after all.
