Do you remember your first encounter with Tintin? Was it from the comics when you were younger? Or from the cartoon that was on TV? Or from the Spielberg-directed film that came out a few years ago? Fans of the Belgian comic book hero can now enjoy a full space dedicated to his adventures. There are figurines, posters and artwork for collectors. For young ones who love to reminisce, there are stationery items, keychains, mugs, and t-shirts as well!

With Guardians of the Galaxy coming to Philippine theaters this Wednesday, we wanted to help set the stage for this rag-tag group of... heroes? What has us excited, why, and — most importantly — what can you read to complete your Guardians of the Galaxy experience.
Here are 5 Things to know about the film.
"Right now, I'm reading Matilda. Roald Dahl! I'm a little late to reading. I was not the kind of child who read a lot. For one reason or another, I just didn't. Now, I really love books and love reading. So I'm going back to all the children's books I think I missed out on. Catching up."
Welcome, students, to another session of Lucy's #LitGloss! Today, we step into the looking glass with Alice, experience a deep sense of inner comfort, and get up close and personal with some fine poets. Are you ready for today's lesson?

“The world standing on its head.” That's how Russian critic Mikhail Bakhtin describes the carnivalesque. It's a state where norms and restrictions fly out through the chimney so riot has the whole house to himself! Think carnival or circus. Carnivalesque moments in literature are nonsensical, grotesque, funny, or magical, even. If you enjoy the chaos, visit Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland, and Neil Gaiman's Coraline. Things there get "curiouser and curiouser", as Alice would say.
This week, Lucy celebrates her 4th year with Fully Booked! Join her online celebration below as she tries to find out what books you like to recommend!
“What should I read next?” is not only one of the questions that I am always tweeted, but also one of the most harrowing questions I have to answer for myself. There is always a plethora of stories to choose from: from the pains and joys of being a young adult, to the political anguish of a hero or heroine, to the plight of a middle-aged man or woman (and to many many more story lines).
"What are you in the mood for right now?” is always my follow up, whether to answer this question for myself or for others. Is it comedy that you want? Or drama? Or love? Or nonfiction?
