Whether you are waiting at a bus stop, lining up at a taxi-stand, sipping coffee at your favourite hangout or sitting on a bench at a crowded mall, dive into a good book and be transformed by the experience of the printed word. Nothing preserves, announces, expounds and transmits knowledge across time and space quite like a book. Blogs, ebooks and tweets come and go, but the book on your shelf is a constant, unassuming companion.
Our little bookshop started in 2002 and over the years we have become part of the community, hosting events and book-readings. Wardah has become a shared living room where people come, linger and browse.
At Wardah, we are advocates of literacy, enabling effective reading, thinking and writing. We also believe that there is much to read (and so little time!). So pick up a book today.

In-Store talk at Wardah Books
Its no secret that we at Wardah love the writings of the late Neil Postman, a social commentator. We are glad to have Educational Consultant Amran Noordin share and discuss Postman’s views about technology and education. Amran will also relate these ideas to Singapore and to the Muslim community.
You can read Wardah’s reviews on Postman’s ‘Amusing Ourselves to Death’ and ‘The Disappearance of Childhood’ in this blog.
