Bookstore: La Solidaridad

the bookstore with gravitas

In the heart of the Malate backpacking area on Padre Faura St. beside  Robinson’s Place Manila is the most historic bookstore the Philippines has.  Founded by the National Artist for Literature, F. Sionil Jose, you will find all kinds of international classics and local heavyweights of Philippine literature here.  Not quite the place where you will find Twilight, nevertheless, it’s a great place to stock up on books for the long bus rides around the country.  You can also find F. Sionil Jose’s books here, of course, his most famous one is My Brother, My Executioner, the third book in his Rosales Saga.
