You can reach us on any of our social media pages, email, or call us.

How should I care for my books?

Books last forever as long as we look after them. Here are a few quick tips on how to care of your books. 

  • Store your books in a shady part of the room away from direct sunlight / any high-intensity light and any damp areas.
  • Regularly clean your books/shelves. Dust them with a clean cloth (microfiber).
  • Shelve your books well e.g paperbacks in an upright position and hardcovers flat on a surface.
  • Clean & dry your hands before you handle your books and save the pages from stains, grease, and crumbs.
Is there a physical location?

No, The Creaking Bookshelf is an exclusively online bookstore. We strive to build the platform to be user-friendly so as to enhance your experience.

If you have questions or would like recommendations, we are more than happy to help. DM on our social media handles or call us.
