There are a few things that we Malaysians generally love apart from food – free stuff.
And if you’re the type of person who happens to love books and has a knack for aesthetically pleasing (or shall we say, Instagram-worthy places?) to stay while travelling, you’re in for the ultimate treat.
You bookworms must be familiar with BookXcess
and you would know by know that they have opened the doors to the first 24-hour and largest bookstore in Malaysia. The bookstore is located in Tamarind Square, Cyberjaya.
Here's a good news for all you bookworms and wanderlusters out there: Airbnb will be transforming BookXcess into the accommodation of your literary dreams for one night, starting from 29 to 30 September 2018
But before you gather your friends and try to book the listing, there’s a little twist to it: you don’t have to pay for it, as one lucky winner and a guest will get the chance to stay there for free
Imagine having a once-in-a-lifetime sleepover surrounded by over half a million books? Bet your heart is already bursting with little pages of happiness.
So, how does one win this ‘novel’ staycation?
All you have to do is go to the listing page here
and follow a few simple instructions and include the title and genre of your favourite book that you love to bring when you travel (and the reason why, of course) in 50 words or less.
The contest is open to all Malaysians aged 18 and above. Contest closes on 20 September 2018 at 11:59pm.
Apart from staying overnight at a swanky Airbnb made for you within the bookstore, the lucky duo will also get the opportunity to:
- Learn how to run a bookstore for a day and work at BookXcess
- Participate in a “Grab-and-Go” session where you’ll get to grab as many books as possible - for free! - in two minutes
- A late-night bookclub session with BFM
What are you waiting for guys? Get your entries in ASAP; this is one literary dream you need to star in!
