Kuala Lumpur
Do you love books?
Kuala Lumpur has been named as World Book Capital 2020 by UNESCO. We are pretty sure book lovers everywhere will certainly be jumping up and down for this news. So are we!

Come on guys, reading is a good habit. Reading on the train is one of the brilliant ideas that one should practice. Those who haven’t tried it before, please do!

A good book can be hugely satisfying, can teach you about things beyond your daily horizons, and can create characters so vivid you feel as if you really know them. Find books that really grip you and keep you going.

As Dr. Seuss has mentioned, “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” So, let us help you in finding good bookstores around Kuala Lumpur that can be accessible by LRT and MRT! Oh, don’t forget to include the hashtag #malaysiamembaca too.

    KEDAI BUKU

    Straightforward, innit? In Bahasa Malaysia, kedai buku is a book shop. As literal as it sounds, this shop sells second-hand and new books. As soon as you step inside this shop, please don’t be surprised to see stacks of books on your left and right. You even have to stretch your hand to reach for some of the books that are placed high at the top of the ceiling (not exaggerating, please). Located on the ground floor of Central Market, you can ride Kelana Jaya LRT Line and your stop is LRT Pasar Seni. You will find all kind of books, mostly fiction. There is Mills & Boon also!

    The most recent book that we found was ‘Still Me’ by Jojo Moyes. Please don’t tell us that you don’t know her. If you have welled up watching Me Before You, you should know who Jojo Moyes is. Still Me is the third trilogy of Me Before You. And it cost just RM 20. It’s that cheap, guys. So, if you’re an avid reader for a romantic genre, you wouldn’t want to miss the new life of Lou Clarks after the poor Will Traynor passed away!
    Next, if you’re a fan of Khalil Gibran, you might want to read The Return of the Prophet by Hajjar Gibran. Those who have read The Prophet by Khalil Gibran, would know how phenomenal the book was. Hajjar Gibran is the great nephew of Khalil Gibran. The Return of the Prophet was based on his own spiritual awakening on his often heart-breaking and ultimately triumphant life. You would find plenty of themes from this book; betrayal, desire, forgiveness.

    Our drama industry nowadays has been adapting stories from Malay novels and apparently the strategy works well. It can be proven by the highest number of audiences who are watching the drama. For instance, Cinta Si Wedding Planner (4.5 million), Rindu Awak 200% (4.4 million, Zul Ariffin, come on) and many more. So you see, everything starts from the book, guys.

    You have to first-hand experience of reading the book before it’s being adapted into a drama. At Kedai Buku, you can find plenty of Malay novels; Nasi Paprik Cinta (yumms!) Andainya Takdir (this one has captured 10 million audience) and a lot more on the rack. Interesting, huh? Can you guys be part of us in our journey to find the must visit bookstores, pretty please? Comments appreciated and you guys are the best! We shall continue our journey soon and share it with you, folks! One last piece of advice, “reading gives us someplace to go when we have to stay where we are”.
