About Us: “All It Takes is One Book”

BookSpine is a social startup committed to changing lives, one book at a time. We’re on a mission to make literature both accessible and sustainable, combating waste while championing literacy in the Philippines. At the heart of our platform is a cutting-edge recommendation engine designed to uplift the local book industry. We aim to serve as a centralized hub that connects authors, publishers, and retailers to readers, offering an extensive range of both print and digital books that resonate deeply with individual preferences.

One of our goals is bridging the supply-demand gap in the book ecosystem, particularly in regions with limited access to physical bookstores. Our ultimate aim is to ensure every book finds its perfect home and every Filipino discovers the transformative power of reading.

In doing so, we ensure every book finds a new home, every Filipino finds the book they need, and together, we foster literacy and environmental sustainability.


Every person in the world is matched with the books that can impact their lives positively.

Our vision is to be the leading group of specialty bookstore brands in the Philippines, providing sustainably curated selections of books that cater to the diverse interests and needs of our customers. We strive to create a welcoming and inclusive space where everyone can discover new books, connect with fellow book lovers, and expand their horizons.


Foster a more conscious society composed of lifelong learners – a haven where people can connect, discuss, and discover wisdom that can impact their life.

At BookSpine, our mission is to change lives one book at a time. We aim to leverage technology to bring the world’s library to your fingertips – making sure that every book, whether printed a century ago or a week ago, is accessible to anyone, anywhere.
