Bookmarked: Celebrating Lands and Seas

by Lindy Gamolo This month, we are delighted to join all environmentalists and advocates in celebrating the Philippine Environment Month and Celebrate the Seas Month.

Bookmarked: Marcadores de Instituto Cervantes

Bookmarked: Film-Featuring Bookmark Series by Libreria Follas Novas

by Lindy Gamolo I know it’s similar to Fiction Nation’s theme (with all due respect to our wonderful SIC, Allana), but I have several reasons in writing about bookmarks featuring film adaptations for September. First: Because September is the month when Cinema Europa opens!

Photobooks: A Trip Down Memory Lane

by Lindy Gamolo Like most things, memories do not last forever. They fade over time, no matter how hard we try to keep them safe in our minds.
