Gohd Books officially opened in April 2009, with a collection of hard-to-find books hidden in an equally obscure shophouse along Serangoon Road, Singapore. The Serangoon Rd days were fun – we were lodged on the 2nd floor of the shophouse, above a Karaoke Pub, and friends gathered there nightly to read, talk, and share in the misery of having to listen to the outrageously loud (and bad) singing from the pub below.
Besides being a bookstore, Gohd Books began as, and remains, a space for events and gatherings. So far, we have held flea markets, book launches, gigs, art exhibitions, parties, talks and a 2-day punk music festival! Check out our Events page for upcoming and past events. In August 2009, we moved to a much quieter neighbourhood, and now operate on a By Appointment Only system.
After a couple of stops along the way, in December 2013, we moved to our new location at Burlington Square, with regular opening hours. Address and opening hours are in the Contact us section!
