The Orchard Road book triangle where I spent so many hours avoiding homework as a teenager – Sunny Bookshop in Far East Plaza, Borders in Wheelock Place, Library@Orchard in Ngee Ann City – is no more.
I never thought of it as a triangle. I would say my triangle would be more of Unnamed Old Bookshop at Far East Plaza, Kinokuniya and Library@Orchard. Old Bookshop for second hand mouldy stuff at dirt cheap prices. I could never understand Sunny’s weird bookshelves, newish books that aren’t new or second hand and aren’t that much cheaper, and too much easy reading material. Kino is just fabulous. Borders had lots of magazines to browse through freely – their books sucked. Library@Orchard was a decent library, esp after they closed down the old brickwalled national library.
