I visited the Junk Bookstore yesterday at Jalan Tun H.S Lee, 2 minutes walk from Pasar Seni Kuala Lumpur. It’s situated in a quiet row of shops. Parking was a little hard, if you are planning to visit the shop, you have to either park in Pasar Seni or park illegally in front of the bookstore itself.
The bookstore is a very old store, it was opened 20+ years ago, the store smell of aging books and i’m sure it would melt book lovers.
They dont only sell books, they also sell Vinyls that differ in price range.
The books are secondhand books, and they were at reasonable prices.
You should expect the books to be musty upon buying and not something brand new.
It’s fun to explore the bookstore, books are everywhere and it’s not really well-ordered but that’s what makes this bookstore queer. You should take your time when visiting this bookstore.
This bookstore is two storey high and you can find out of print books, comics and all sort of books here. Mostly rare and used.
There are just a gem full category of books, from fiction, non-fiction, comic, astrology, spiritual, business, and self-help. All books are plastic wrapped.
