A New Life For BUKU

Book lovers know the feeling well - there are certain paperbacks you’ve read time and time again that are falling apart, hardbacks with the pages slowly coming away from the cover, but you can’t bring yourself to throw away the literature that gave you such joy. So instead of having to discard, what about giving your pre-loved books a new life? Philip Yong Kee Chung, founder of pre-loved bookstore BUKU, discusses his passion for pre-loved books and his unique approach in trusting his customers with a totally unmanned retail experience.
