A cool place with good vibes, and even better titles to select from. Quite surprised that they even carry some obscure titles that i can't find elsewhere. lots of local lit books too. Its important to support local establishments like that. good work guys!
Always love popping by Booksactually as the books are curated by the owner Kenny Leck who is very passionate about promoting the love of reading and literature. The cats in store also add an interesting feature whenever they suddenly pop up to greet you when...More

The bookshop is a great experience. Local authors with unique stories and a fantastic...More
It's a must visit for literature lover. I was literally dragged to leave this heaven. I purchase their Singaporean Literature and book bag. If you walk further to the back you will find out another treasure.
Nestled in the quaint, hipster neighbourhood of Tiong Bahru, this humble bookstore boasts an awesome selection of Singaporean writers, and the most intelligent collection of good books for savvy readers anyway. Also look out for create and nostalgic local souvenirs. Don't forget to say hello...More
