    Page one and Daiso are the reasons I go Vivocity at times. And if I have cravings for some food only located here. ha..

    I kinda like the freezing air-con in Page One. Being that cold, its also good for the books so maybe they will not gather fungus then you won't get a musky and moldy smell in it after sometime ha.. just my thots

    I liked the variety of books they offer, the maze like design, the creaking sounds from the timber flooring as you walk, the view of Sentosa *** sea view and the natural light coming in from the glass windows.

    Page one book store being spacious enough, is also not as crowded as other book stores like Popular. Its great that they incorporate some design to a shop which you call a book store. Service wise i'm not sure but i'm sure everything can be improved. ;)

    Go there and walk around if you have the time. Make it a leisure one

      I was looking for some classic books such as Narnia, InkHeart, etc. I already went to many mega bookstores and to my amazement, I found what I was looking for nowhere but PageOne.

      A serious looking, huge bookstore with a green logo is all i could remember of Pageone. The interior decoration was nothing less then interesting. I love the center elevated portion best.. The elevated areas with book shelves crooked and slanted is like a replication of a study room in the pirates bunk on board a huge ship seeking a treasure. Beautiful, intrinsic details of the shelves and slanted floor makes it so much a fantasy to me.

      While browsing through the collection of books, I realised this one thing..... unlike some book stores... The titles are a plenty however, there are only one or two copies, which makes a huge variety of titles for you to choose from in one shelf. While in some bookstores... They have many books and have them in many repeated copies in which you will have a whole shelf full of similar titles. Not much a Selection.

      I was actually looking for some intrinsic designed novels such as ancient logo embossed hard cover with brown paper in gold tinted edges for my collection. I found the title i wanted and some other bonus catch as well....

      I find that for a book shop, the amount of selection is most important, however, what is important is the ambience and space. In PageOne, you can take your time to browse through the books and there are soothing jazz music playing in the background. If you find something you like and want to read a little of it before deciding to purchase, there are some sits hidden near the glass windows for you to browse through. Though Limited, these sits offers a great sea view which makes the entire "searching for a book" process much more enjoyable.

      If you like chinese books, be it novels or general references, there is a good selection of multiple titles at the back of the book store.

      This is a pretty serious book store.... Straight to the point, comprehensive and you might find some gems here... Reasonably priced and great services......

      A must go for BookWorms......

        the first time I stepped into page one at vivo, i expected it to be similar like kinokuniya. true that initially the staffs there were a litlle "snob", but then, if you go back there now, the "snob" ones are no longer working. perhaps they are under-staffed, but still, it's a real pleasure to have an available staff attend to you if you do managed to grab hold of one. of course, if you ask a staff about a certain genre of books in which he or she doesn't have much knowledge on, it's quite frustrating. the good part is that, lately, the staffs are more than willing to go out of their counters to get your books for you liao. when i first did a book enquiry about a particular title which they didn't bring in, the staff simply checked on their own system and seeing that they don't carry that title, they simply told me: "sorry, we don't carry this title." but now, if you're looking for a title in which they happen not to carry, they actually suggest to you that you could place an order with no additional charge at all. and back to the topic about snobbish-ness, i personally think kino is gearing towards snobbish, blur and bo-chap lor...
