As much as we love to fix up & look sharp
externally at ShopVenture. We equally love the beauty of a well-read mind.
Nothing dresses you better or is a chicer accessory than a book (or an
e-reader) in hand! In local chain bookstores, international titles can be
pricey, so online sourcing is often the best option! Whether you are spending
your summer days on the beach or curled up in bed on a lazy Sunday afternoon,
we have the titles and their online libraries to keep you accessorized with
style and substance.
The Life of A Banana by PP Wong
We love this hybrid author, who is a melange of both Londoner and Singaporean. She also so happens to be the first ever British-Chinese novelist to be published in the UK, and her debut novel is phenomenal. This book will make you laugh and cry in equal measure and explores the interesting and timely theme of mixed cultural identity in a world which is ever globalized. The Book Depository offers free worldwide delivery for all its titles from around the world.

We love to support local, and independent publisher’s Epigram is just that! A brilliant local publisher that supports Singaporean writers and talent. At the moment they are celebrating their 4th birthday! So enjoy a 30% discount off their range for the month of July. We love their carefully curated birthday book bundles which have selected titles according to your mood, so you can choose according to if you’re feeling ‘nostalgic’ or super ‘adventurous’. Our favorite is their wildcard ‘surprise me!’ package, for those who enjoy the thrill of the unknown and unwrapping mystery gifts.
