They have shelves!

Two months ago, I wrote about Bookay-ukay, the used-books store that opened near our house. We recently visited again and they now have shelves. Yay! No more squatting and aching knees! They also seem to have expanded their merchandise—there was a rack of scarves and T-shirts in one corner, and a sign announcing hand drums for sale. I wonder what they'll have next time we visit…

Amazing. I'm glad they got shevles, it seemed so strange a bookstore would NOT have shelves.

Maybe books are not enough to keep the shop going?

The bookseller must be effective to find you a book!!!
Which mess

Those shelves must be groaning under the strain of all those books! I agree with Ken Mac - coffee shop!

I think if I went in there I'd never be able to leave. What a great place.

The title you gave to this post made me smile, because it really is so much easier for us when they exist! :-)

Hilda, I'm so glad you are enjoying my travel blog! It is so good to know that the moments I have lived on my visits to other places are being shared with someone who do appreciate them! Thank you!

Bookay-ukay is at the corner of Maginhawa and Mahusay Streets in U.P. Village, Quezon City. Across Holy Family School.

Shelves are good, especially since I inevitably want the book at the bottom of the pile.

Thanks for the info. Is this shop open on Sundays? I might drop by this weekend if it is.
