Time Out says
journalists who have turned their fondness for the written word into a haven for book lovers. Located on the first floor of Tropicana Avenue, the bookstore combines the studious feel of a library with the warm atmosphere of a living room: there’s plenty of room to casually browse around, while a communal reading table encourages you to spend time reading or discuss your favourite books with other readers or the owners. If that’s not enough to keep you here, there’s also a Nespresso bar where you can have your pick of coffee-based drinks or tea from RM5.
The selection of books is mostly handpicked by Fong, an avid reader who also reviewed books for The Edge for several years. As such, there’s nothing on the shelves that the owners dislike or don’t know about – which also means you won’t come across copies of ‘The Secret’ and ‘Twilight’ anytime soon. What you’ll find instead is a well-considered range of adult fiction and non-fiction, classics, collector’s editions, as well as a smaller section dedicated to young adult fiction. If you’re at a loss of where to start, just ask either owner and they’ll be more than happy to recommend a book they’ve read and loved.
Aside from books, there are also literary themed merchandise such as tote bags and stationery cases from Out of Print and Penguin books that make great gifts. Plans to host book readings, book club gatherings and other activities are in the pipeline, so check up on their website for updates.

You Won't Want To Leave This Book Café That's Filled With Books And Literary Merch
There’s a new book café in town and it’s about to be lit.
Lit Books is pretty much a play on words.
First, there’s the often thrown around and overused millennial phrase, “lit” which classifies anything and everything that’s in and awesome.
Then, there’s Lit Book’s interpretation of how “good books light up our world”. The final lit term could possibly be just a short form of the word ‘literature’.
Lit Books is founded and managed by Elaine and Fong, a husband and wife team who are former journalists and bibliophiles themselves. Trust them to recommend a read while you’re there if you happen to be lost in the hundreds of books and its stunning covers.
And after you’re done looking through the rows and rows of shiny literature, stop to look through the gorgeous merchandises and gifts section with items that have been personally hunted down from the UK and the US.
To satiate your need for all things literature, visit Lit Books here:
Hours: Wednesday-Sunday: 11am-9pm, Tuesday: 1pm-9pm. Closed on Mondays.
Address: P-01-11 Tropicana Avenue, 12 Jalan Persiaran Tropicana , Petaling Jaya
