New Year’s Reading Resolutions with the Gardens Shop!

It’s that time of the year where we say goodbye to the old and embrace the new. Amidst the music, food and celebrations shared with your loved ones during this festive season, many of us also try our best to take the time to pen down resolutions for the coming year. Making time for books has always been something at the top of our list, and this year, we hope to share our love for reading with everyone.

Books for Adults

For our adult readers, we also carry titles such as “My Father in His Suitcase”, which tells the story of one of the most colourful and productive biologists of the 20th century, John (Kay) Corner, and how a suitcase filled with his childhood memorabilia led him to search for his estranged father. Also keep a look out for “Natural History Drawings”, which contains wonderful illustrations of natural history in the Malay Peninsula. These are some of the many books from our wide array of reading materials available for you to enjoy.

Books for Children
