2nd Hand Book Shop!

Postby Sniper Angel » Fri Jan 21, 2011 11:53 am

Any idea where can find 2nd hand bookshop that sell 2nd hand storey book (English & Chinese)? Not into textbook series.

In the old days do understand places like Lucky Plaza & the old shop houses at Bras Basah they have it but was tear down!

If you have information or the website address do share it here!

When I was in Primary School eons ago, there used to be one such shop at a corner in Serangoon Gardens. Forgot the name of the shop, and boy, now that you are talking about it, I sure miss that liitle shop, :cry: cramp but had good varieties of second hand story books! :love:

Aiyoh ... that one gone long long time ago. I know which one you mean. Taken over by an eatery now. If I am not mistaken, it is also a cafe that is canine friendly :D

If you are refering to Adult's novels & etc, Saint Bookstores offering such books are still around at shopping centres around S'pore. At least 1 is at Lot1 and the other is at Plaza Singapura.

Wow....that was ages ago. I know that second-hand bookshop too. Used to pop in to borrow Enid Blyton books like the Famous Five, Secret Seven, Bobsey Twins, Mallory Towers. Then graduated to Mills & Boons books :love: Rental was like 10 cents, and get five cents back on return. Haha...how cheap things were then.

There another secondhand bookshop that I sometimes go to nowadays, called San Bookshop. Can be found at some shopping centres like Tampines Mall, Plaza Singapura, etc.
