    Talking Something to Share: Page One @ VivoCity

    Something to Share...

    Before watching Simpsons yesterday nite at VivoCity, I came across a really nice BookStore..
    It's called Page One. T


    The store has hundreds and hundreds of Photography and picture books..
    Was so impressed and I almost missed my show time....

    I wanna go back there again...
    Go check it out...near the cinema area..

    the only uncomfy thing, is that one uncle security "looked" up and down the customers when they walked out of the store... can't blame him, the books there are quality and high priced ones...

    What's the pricing like? For the photography books.

    I know page one has quite some art-orientation, used to get my piano books from a small wing within Kino - hope it is indeed page one, I think it is.

    Just ordered some books from Amazon, crazily painful on the pocket. =(

    You should go to Kinokuniya at Taka. There are alot more books over there.

    Of course! (You have my phone number and contacts, right? )

    lypklypk is right too about Taka. But don't just look at the English photography books at these 2 stores, there are also some good photography books at the Chinese and Japanese sections.

    There's something about the interior decor and atmosphere at Page One that keeps drawing me in. At Orchard Rd Kinokuniya, it just feels a bit too crowded to be browsing books for too long.

    pageOne staff got 30% discount when buying books so try to get a friend whos working in there to help you buy haha...

    anyway their books are more pricey than outside i feel, but the bookstore very comfy haha so actually a few bucks more when you are there is ok lar since if you specially travel to town to buy, then gotta pay for all tt travel expense plus time also come up to about same price

    I just noticed rice..(something one) at the ground floor of funan dedicated to selling photog books. There have more books than pageOne i think. Their main store at adelphi in the past i think.
