BookXcess, the owner of a chain of bookshop and organiser of the Big Bad Wolf (BBW) book festival, made history when it launched the first 24-hour bookshop in the country.

Located at the scenic Tamarind Square, the new BookXcess branch is believed to be the largest in the country, covering a massive area of 37,000 sq ft. Over 500,000 books on numerous topics, with discount rates of between 50 and 80 per cent which are lower than the market price, are being offered.

“The scenic landscape was chosen to provide a haven for readers to escape from the hustle bustle of the city and gain inspiration.

“Although located far from the Klang Valley area, the low prices are expected to attract book lovers from the Klang Valley, Selangor, Negeri Sembilan and Melaka,” he said at the launch of the outlet.

The bookshop with free WiFi access also has a cafe and provides space for customers to work, read, as well as conduct arts and craft classes and colouring contests.
