A Little About Ye Olde Bookshoppe
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 Road 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 a space for events and gatherings. We have held flea markets, book launches, gigs, art exhibitions, parties, talks and a 2-day punk music festival! In August 2009, we moved to a much quieter neighbourhood, then to an even quieter neighbourhood, and operated by appointment only.
After a couple of stops along the way, in December 2013, we moved to our new location at Burlington Square, with regular opening hours. Unfortunately, at the end of 2020, we closed the store and are now operating online only.
