MANILA, Philippines—The floating bookstore is back in Manila. MV Logos Hope has returned to the Philippines and will remain at Pier 15 in the Port Area, Manila, until March 13 when it leaves for Subic Bay.

With a P20 entrance fee, families, teachers, students, bibliophiles or the simply curious can go see the world’s largest floating book fair and buy quality books at affordable prices. MV Logos Hope is open from 10 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. from Tuesday to Saturday and from 1 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. on Sunday.

The floating bookstore, owned by Christian charity organization GBA Ships, is run by a volunteer crew. It boasts more than 5,000 titles, covering a wide range of topics. The ship has been sailing from port to port since 2009 in its mission of “bringing knowledge, help and hope to the people of the world.”

It has traveled across 160 countries and made a stop in Cebu last January. The MV Logos Hope follows in the wake of floating book fair MV Doulos before it was turned over to a new owner in 2010.—Jaymee T. Gamil
