I'm rather surprise to find such a huge bookstore on the Level 4 Of Ion Orchard. Intrigued by the huge PROLOGUE logo by the wall, I cannot resist but have to explore this very interesting place.
Greeting me at the huge entrance is an array of latest bestsellers, local authored novels and interesting general interest books with colourful and eye-drawing hard covers. The magazine section is the first I was drawn to... Neatly stacked techy magazines from all over the world from the famous editing house to the intriguing details of Camera Techniques.. You can find most of your hobby magazines here. The fashion and lifestyle magazines are also aplenty, great for the location as ION ORCHARD is all about Fashion, Lifestyle and Fine Dining.
The books are neatly arranged in a spacious and generous setting with ample move around spaces in between shelves and books and categorized in an chronological related order so that while your search for a certain genre of books, the related ones are nearby, that could ease walking around aimlessly searching for something you think might not be there. If you cannot find the item you need, the staffs there will be a great help. My half an hour book browsing activity spotted at least 2 of the staffs, consistently packing up the place with replacement of misplaced books, making sure the books are displayed neatly, and refilling merchandises low on count.
Its a safe place for children to browse their books because the entire place is a pretty open concept, on top of that, i didn't spot any hazardous designs like sharp corners or multiple steps except for the staircase to the upper level, the entire place is pretty child and pram friendly.
The ceiling high glass windows are a draw to me as it not only lets in natural sunlight, it allows a good bird eye view of the part of orchard road, especially beautiful during rainy days. While i was there i saw them preparing an event space for a book launch, I guess they have many such events during the weekends.
It is a great place for children and their daddys to spend time while mummys do their weekly fashion downloads downstairs at the chic boutiques. Theres also a cafe at the the corner inside this bookstore that serves really yummy meals and snacks as well as aromatic hot coffee and fanciful tea based drinks.
I'm sure its a good and intriguing hide out for the lazy afternoons, reading a good book, sipping some aromatic coffee, tucked at the corner, enjoying the warm caress of the sun, cooled by the whiffs of air-conditioning indoor, feeding your ever thirsty intellect.
