Passage of Time : Singapore Bookstore Stories 1881-2016. First book buy of 2017. This book turned up on my radar suddenly, and what? Is a book-lover supposed to pass this up? Even now with the proliferation of stores like @popular_sg and @booksactually or online stores and ebooks (yucks), thinking about a bookstore always reminds me of the old second-hand bookstores lined up along Bras Bash Road mostly run by Indian uncles. A visit as a kid was like an exciting adventure. They were packed to the roof, dusty and full of treasures. They later moved into Bras Bash Centre, but the passage of time (heh) and technology finally forced most of them to close down. . .
