A new, bare-bones indie bookstore in the burgeoning lit scene.
After a series of book fairs and pop-up stores, Booktique finally has its own permanent outlet in Citylink Mall. The store's interior is incredibly minimalistic, and books are arranged on wooden shelves. There are titles from literary luminaries like Leo Tolstoy and Margaret Atwood, as well as a Cynthia Ozick peeking out from the corner. The bookstore's selling point, however, is the number of books and magazines dedicated to the craft of writing. Aspiring writers can find books on how to write and the magazine "The Writer's Chronicle." If you're more visual, you may want to take a peek at the illustrated version of "Pride and Prejudice." The store owner, Anthony Koh Waugh, rotates his selection from time to time, so there will always be new titles in stock.
