Chachic's Book Nook



I miss the bookstores back home. Singapore is similar to Manila in the sense that it has a lot of malls. But unlike Manila, most malls don’t have bookstores inside them. Kinokuniya, a Japanese bookstore, is one of the more well-known ones because it has three branches.


The young adult section:


Here’s the Harry Potter section:


And they have free bookmarks:

I think they have a pretty good selection of books but a lot more expensive than the books in Manila, they cost almost twice as much here. More reason to sign up for the public library! Or renew my friendship with the Book Depository.
