What’s better than tons of books? Tons of cheap books!
Heaven is a place on Earth if you’re a genuine book lover. More precisely, a place in Malaysia. A recently opened bookstore with a catchy name is a dream-come-true for bookworms. It will definitely live up to your expectations, and then some. Not only do they have a close to an infinite choice of books in one place, but they can also be bought at very reasonable prices.
This Malaysian bookstore is the newest BookXcess’s shop, and it’s called The Box of Knowledge. It seems that the company believes all book lovers should have access to good reads, regardless of their financial status. If you’re ever in the neighborhood of Sunway Iskandar, Johor, make sure you stop by this fantastic shop. Don’t miss this wonderful chance to treat yourself with a title you’ve always wanted to have in your personal library.
The bookstore is situated in a 32,000-square-ft space, and it has just welcomed its first visitors. It has literally anything you could ever wish for. Bestsellers, thrillers, biographies, marketing, psychology, books for children, the classics, and the newest hits – the choice is entirely yours. If you need a recommendation, the bookstore’s friendly staff is always there to help with a few ideas.
Believe it or not, it gets better! The Box of Knowledge also introduces reading corners, where you can sit back and skim through new potential members of your home library. If you have a kid, feel free to take a break from the long day and read a couple of stories together.
Do your kids quickly get bored? Don’t worry. There’s an area where they can experience interactive reading activities, thanks to AR technology. The Augmented Reality is combined with “Magical Books” in the so-called Children’s Cave that promises to make your children book lovers just like you.
If this sounds interesting enough, check out the special promotion that lasts till the end of March – by purchasing two Magical Books, you get one for free. If you buy three, you’ll get two additional books!
What’s the goal of these superb initiatives? The company’s main objective is to make bookshelves cool again.
Andrew Yap, the co-founder of the bookstore chain, says they want to remind people how important it is to enjoy reading. As children learn from their parents, they also acquire their habits. The best way to inspire more reading is to provide enough quality time for parents to spend with their children. Reading together doesn’t only encourage children to read, but also helps build a stronger relationship with their parents.
As Yap points out, “reading increases knowledge, builds character, improves one’s thinking process, and widens your awareness of social, economic, and environmental issues”.
There’s basically no downside to forming a good reading habit. Maybe you’ll get tired of all that walking around such a big bookstore, but you can get a nice drink at Café Wolf to recharge your batteries before you continue your quest to find the best titles out there. One thing’s for sure, you most certainly won’t go home empty-handed.
