The MV Logos Hope, the world-traveling floating bookstore, will return to the Philippines for a three-month stay from May to July.

The ship will be berthed at three locations during its stay in the country.

According to its website, the ship will be in Cebu from May 4 to May 29 (though according to its Facebook account the ship's Cebu stay will start on May 5); at the Subic Bay Freeport Zone from June 1 to July 7 (though its Facebook account gives its Subic dates as June 9 to July 7); and San Fernando (province not specified) from July 8 to July 23.

The Logos Hope is operated by the German charity group GBA Ships, whose initialism stands for Gute Bücher für Alle ("Good Books for All"). According to the group, the Logos Hope has visited more than 150 countries and seen a total of 44 million book lovers check out its store of more than 5,000 titles for sale "at a fraction" of the books' retail price.
