Our Story

Ever noticed Malaysia’s ridiculous book prices?

In 2006, we got fed up with them and started up BookXcess, a small bookstore with a big dream: helping Malaysians kick-start their reading habits. Pick up any book off our shelves, and you’ll see it’s priced up to 80% less than other bookstores!

Our books are not

Old Second-hand Damaged books

They are

Brand New Titles Book

How does this work?

1Books are printed, then sent to bookstores to be sold.
2Unsold books, still new and unread, are often dumped, shredded, pulped... Or sold off as remainder books.
3Bookxcess bookstores purchase remainder books at low prices, give them a new home, and pass the savings right on to all malaysian readers.

BookXcess bookstores sell a wide variety of English language books: fiction, non-fiction, children’s books and various genres in between! You get an amazing variety of affordable books, and a good book reaches people like you. And that’s how everyone gets to read more for less with BookXcess, the cheapest bookstore in Malaysia.

BookXcess bookstores charge no GST on books; what you see on the tag is what you pay. We are also the proud parent store of the world’s biggest book sale, the Big Bad Wolf Book Sale! Visit our bookstores at Amcorp Mall, Petaling Jaya, or fahrenheit88 in Kuala Lumpur for massive discounts on books every single day of the year.
