Shelfwalking: Conquering and Maintaining a Book Wall

by Mary Ruth It was just supposed to be a shelf. I never thought my books would reach this many. I guess, at some point, collecting became borderline hoarding.  But reading is one of my therapies. When I lived away from home for six years to study and eventually work, books were what helped me…More

Shelfwalking: Minimalism On My Mind (or What To Do With My Books)

by Agnes Manalo There are books by favorite authors, books I’ve been meaning to read since their appearance on some list or another, irresistible bargain books, books with pretty covers, etc. They sit, unread, on my shelves for years. Once I’ve read them, I have to figure out what to do with them. A favorite…More

Shelfwalking: Books I Brought With Me to Another Country

by Georgette S. Gonzales Here’s a shot of my bookshelf at my residence in California. That is just about 20% of all the print books I own. It will take a few more trips home to the Philippines before I can haul everything to the States. How did I choose which ones to bring first? I…More

Shelfwalking: 4 Romance Series I Love The Most

by Mikki Shiu I actually have an ordinary looking bookshelf, a five-layer one made of plain regular plywood, and it is not even painted, finished or covered yet. I requested it from my dad a few years ago when I noticed my growing number of books. The top shelf is where I place all book…More

by Cake Evangelista Call me weird, but what I’m most excited to see in the live-action “Beauty and the Beast” (starring St. Hermione Granger Emma Watson) is the Beast’s bookgasmic bibliophile paradise. Four stories of shelves, spiral staircases, overstuffed couches, giant globes, a grand fireplace, and GAZILLIONS AND GAZILLIONS OF BOOKS(!). I mean, just LOOK AT…More

Shelfwalking: Books By Life Stages

by Celestine Trinidad This is quite possibly the hardest list I’ve ever had to make, because I like reading a little bit too much. I read everything, even the nutritional information off food packages, and when I’m sad, book shopping is the equivalent of retail therapy for me. So I decided that, for Shelfwalking, I will…More

Shelfwalking: My 5 Books for Life

by Lucille de Mesa Every single book I own has a unique memory to me: They are like friends who will never leave me—or can never leave me. But when I was asked to do Shelfwalking, I admit I had no idea what to share at first. But I remembered the photo I took for #ThrowbackThursday:…More

Shelfwalking: 6 Books That Helped Shaped My Advoca-Sea

by Anna Oposa When I was asked to write about six books that helped shaped my advocacy as a marine conservationist, I was thrilled. I have so many books related to it! My shelves are home to titles like Conservation Science, The Optimistic Environmentalist, The Sixth Extinction and Marine Conservation Biology. I then realized I have never…More

Shelfwalking: The path towards being OC

by Karl Mabutas Nothing beats the refreshing look of piles of books lying around in your wonderful space. It is greener than nature, whiter than crystals, and shinier than the most expensive gadget you currently have. Why, you ask? Because those are the visual representations of your page-by-page success. The look and feel of recollecting your…More
