It has been over a year since the pandemic changed our lifestyle and everyday routine, and with the time we’re still spending at home, many of us are continuously coping by reading books.
While books have become more accessible at home, thanks to e-books we could virtually read, a book’s physical copy still has its big perks. No distractions, no glaring screen, just a book that will immerse you into its world and story.
Lucky for us who prefer the hardcopy, there are a number of online book stores out there where we can order such books and have them delivered straight to our doors. Here’s a handy list of these online book shops.
Anvil Publishing Inc.
One of the country’s most well-known and revered publishing companies, Anvil Publishing Inc. allows its wide demographic of readers to shop for books safely at home through their online stores. Here, you can find titles from Nick Joaquin, Lualhati Bautista, Ambeth Ocampo, and so much more!
