Top Affordable Bookstores in Singapore

Anna Quindlen once said: "Books are the plane, the train, and the road. They are the destination and the journey. They are home." The magical nature of books made people all over the world including the Singaporeans fall in love with them even more.

A proof of that are the crowded libraries and bookstores filled with diverse selection of books. Worry not about the bookstores that offer the best prices, as we got it covered for you! Here is the rundown of the Top Affordable Bookstores in Singapore

 

  1. BRAS BASAH COMPLEX

 

Bras Basah Complex is not only the perfect place for cheap printing services but also for cheap bookstores. These bookstores store a variety of fiction books, magazines, textbooks, children's books, graphic novels, and more. Patronize the Evernew Bookstore’s book fairs that offer second-hand books for as low as S$2! With a price as low as that, how can a bookworm ever leave?

 

Although it is used, it does not mean that you cannot get one in mint condition! Furthermore, the existence of used books serve as a gentle reminder that regardless of its age, that does not alter its meaningful contents.
