During the holidays, I mentioned that I found a new hangout (aside from Caffe Ti Amo via 240baons + 365 meals). This is where I detoxed and recharged after braving the mall crowds. This is also where I found really nice gifts for friends and family. So what is this place?
You already know that I love shopping for makeup, clothes, bags and shoes. But when I’m not in the mood to buy kikay stuff, I find joy in books. When I was a kid, my grandfather would take me to National Bookstore after classes and immerse me in different kinds of literature. I’m glad I never outgrew that and I am grateful to him for teaching me to love books.
Over the years, we have seen the evolution of bookstores. Such is the case of Fully Booked. It not only sells books, it also sells a myriad of other things.
Fully Booked is where I get my fill of books and chick lit:
on a discount because of this:
And being kikay, I need accessories for my books:
It doesn’t stop there. I also got my ipod these:
I just couldn’t resist these for my earphones:
I also gave some of these emotibles as gifts to friends. Aside from the emotibles, I bought pens, art stuff, kids books and stationery sets which I gave away as presents to inaanaks. But I need to wrap the gifts. No worries, my favorite brand for gift wrapping stuff is housed in Fully Booked too:

What sealed my flourishing relationship with Fully Booked? This:
which I got via The Secret.
I’ve been looking for the Sephora book everywhere. I asked customer service at GB and he said that there are no more available copies. One day we went to Bonifacio High Street. Naturally, I had to visit Fully Booked. I wasn’t expecting to see a pristine copy of this book but it was there, waiting on the shelf for me to grab it and take it home.
Oh, how I love Fully Booked!
(This is not a paid advertisement. I just really love Fully Booked.)
