About Us

The Penang Bookshelf was established in 2010 to expand the range of books about Malaysia available for sale here and to enable those living outside Malaysia to obtain books published here and in the region at reasonable prices. Since then The Penang Bookshelf has built up an unrivalled broad range of new and old books within this speciality. We mainly sell online, but an increasing number of customers visit our store in Penang which is open by appointment. We also sell at various events in Penang and elsewhere.
