Happy to see you here!

Based in Manila, Philippines, we are a volunteer-based community that runs on books, stories and dreams. Our goal is to help develop the #ReadingNation, and we do that by providing a place where readers, authors, writers, poets and artists like you can share their work and support one another. If you’re also passionate about what we do and care about, scroll down below to join us.

Remember: To read is to dream, and to dream is to live.

Here are ways to be part of the community


Book reviews, features, review requests, art, comics, poetry, fiction—if you want to share them with us, we’d be happy to publish them!


We sell art, books, merch and stationery. Help sustain our community and support local work by buying our items and products.

Volunteer for the #AReaderEveryDay book drive and our other activities, or come up with your own and we’ll help you see it through.


Book markets, book discussions, book parties, art and writing workshops… Let’s find more art and books and new friends, shall we?
