buqo – discover FREE Philippine Magazines, Books and More!
buqo is a bookstore, newsstand, and reader in a single app. It was built to give Pinoys (and Pinoys-at-heart) everywhere a single place to access bestselling Filipino magazines, books, and more.
buqo is about feeding the mind; we believe that reading is a satisfying and refreshing experience. A Filipino will find some word play in “book ko,” or “my book” in English and “buko,” translated as “young coconut,” a fruit known for its nutritional value and versatility, which has been used locally as a metaphor for the mind (as in “use your coconut”)
