Caving Liz whose intrepid exploits lead her to clamber up topographical features and spelunk down into the bowls of the earth, makes an earthshattering new discovery at I Utama : there's an official BookCrossing zone!
It's located on the ground floor outside Parkson and MPH are sponsoring 50 free books a month. But of course, the whole point of BookCrossing is to release some of your own books, so that readers can enjoy them. Here's more about it on the 1Utama website.
Liz says :
There is a small book case and a lounge area for people to sit and read - although the people I saw there were just using the seats for a rest or to read the newspaper!It will be very interesting to see how the scheme works out. I've crossed quite a few books in the past but find the person who picks them up doesn't tend to play fair and pass them on, which is a bit disappointing because it's nice to see how far books travel and what happens to them on their journey.
Here's an article about the BookCrossing Zone from The Star.
