From beautiful Singapore we were able to visit small used book shops in Bali, Indonesia, beautiful Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and Phuket, Thailand.
Very interesting used and rare bookstore in Phuket, Thailand.
There was so much to see and do in Singapore we stayed there 6 days. Below is our visit to Interpool.
There is no question in our travels around the world that most used bookstores are not aware of the importance and value of signed books and documents. Yet, they are all interested in learning about the subject of autographs.
