You read that book and all you want to do is go outside and forget you have a job and take a sketch book and a journal and observe.

What really knocks me out is a book that, when you’re all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it.
Every form of happiness is one, every desire is driven by the same motor - by our love for a single value, for the highest potentiality of our own existence - and every achievement is an expression of it.
Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swamps of the not-quite, the not-yet, and the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists.. it is real.. it is possible.. it’s yours.

Apple caramel crumble pie, blueberries ‘n cream crunch pie, blueberry cheesecake, gobblin’ goblin’s pie, snicker fudge cheesecake, maple pecan and candled bacon cheesecake, chocolate chip walnut pie, banana starry-berry custard cheesecake and myster-reese’s wicked pie.

Each of them sounds cute. :3

You must take life the way it comes at you and make the best of it.
Good god, Fully booked at BGC is my second home. So much beauty. So perfect.

Agree! It’s one of the places I’m loving right now. I wanna go back!

I recently attended a blogging conference called BlogCon in the University of Santo Tomas to impart some of my blogging lessons and experiences. Furthermore, I shared how Book Mania grew up and how it celebrates the amazing power of reading.

😊😘📚 I couldn’t believe I was standing in front of many people!

I felt welcomed by the staff and the audience! This blogging conference was a success and there will be more of it in the future! (Photos courtesy of Tomasinoweb)
