a letter from the founder





A warm welcome to Starry Ferry Books, an online bookstore dedicated to fostering unity through literature, with a special nod to the Chinese community across the US. Our journey began in September 2023, driven by a genuine desire to create a space where books serve as bridges between cultures and hearts.

With a background in communication technology within marketing and the unwavering support of my beloved family, I embarked on this venture. My passion for captivating stories, intriguing characters, and diverse perspectives guides me as I curate our collection, which includes historical fiction, memoirs, children's books, and Christian literature.

However, our mission extends beyond books; it's about nurturing a close-knit community and preserving the cultural treasures of the Chinese-speaking community. By maintaining subtle connections with Hong Kong, we honor our heritage and celebrate our shared culture.

We also hope that our presence can contribute to the greater good, especially for those in need. In October 2023, I launched a charity campaign called Pages of Hope - for every book you purchase from Starry Ferry Books and choose to have our stamp on the inner front page, we will donate $1 to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. It's a small gesture that can have an immense impact on the lives of children in need.

Your presence brings light to us. As we softly gaze towards the future, perhaps envisioning the possibility of a physical store, I am deeply grateful for your support and anticipate the journey ahead.

Warm regards,

Amanda Bok
