What is Times Reads?
Times Reads is an initiative by Times Distribution, the leading trade book distributor in Singapore, Malaysia, and Brunei. We are a group of passionate book lovers, and we want to share good books with everyone everywhere! Please visit our About Us page for more information on who we are and what we do.

I see a link that says, ‘Add to Reading List’. What is a reading list, and how does it work?
See a book you like? Simply click on ‘Add to Reading List’, which can be accessed via the book icon on the navigation bar. You can add as many as you like—think of it as a shopping list! Once you are happy with your finds, save it as a PDF—a friendly format for your online purchase, or for printing a copy to bring to your nearest local bookstore.
Can I purchase from your website?
We are happy to know that you love the books we recommend! Our books are available for purchase at any of your local bookstores. If they are not in stock, please enquire with your friendly bookstores on how you can place special orders for them. Please visit our Stockists page for a list of retailers that we work with in Singapore and Malaysia, and support your local booksellers!
What does ISBN mean?
An acronym for International Standard Book Number, an ISBN is a 13-digit book identifier that is unique to every edition and book published by each publisher. For instance, a paperback and a hardcover edition of the same book published by different publishers will each have a different ISBN. Flip to the back of any book and you will find its ISBN indicated above the barcode. If you have the ISBN of a book you might be searching for, simply pass it to a staff at your local bookstore and they will search for it through their system.
I’ve been seeing boxes of books featured on various social media platforms, and they were sent by you.
Do you do subscription boxes?
We work with many influencers in Singapore and Malaysia, and these are books that we send to them on a regular basis as part of our social media collaborations. Unfortunately, we do not currently offer subscription boxes, but you will be able to find the books that we send to these influencers at any of your local bookstores.
