KL & Surrounds
G35, The Summit Subang USJ, Persiaran Kewajipan USJ 1, Subang Jaya (03 8023 5748/www.facebook.com/bookalicious). Located on the ground floor of the nondescript Summit USJ, Bookalicious! has been providing USJ residents with discounted books for five years, not unlike BookXcess, though new titles arrive sooner. Friendly owner Ngai is always on hand to provide advice. Daily, 12.30-10pm.
20 Jalan 28/70A, Desa Sri Hartamas, KL (03 2300 1406). This hidden gem tucked away in Desa Sri Hartamas is part bookstore and part library. Borrow reading material for a small fee, first by paying its cover price and then by selling the book back to Bookstreet when you’re through. You’ll find tons of English volumes, a small section carrying Chinese and Malay books plus a decent amount of children’s literature. Tue-Sun, 11am-7.30pm.
