September’s been a whirlwind month, even here at BookXcess. It’s possible that some of the really cool stuff we’ve got happening right now might have passed you by, but that’s OK; here’s a recap of all the things you need to check out right now in our stores:

1. Our new look in Amcorp Mall

We’ve spruced up our store in Amcorp Mall, the place where we first began offering Malaysians books at ridiculously low prices. It’s gotten a lot friendlier and a whole lot cooler inside with work from local illustrators on our walls! Come see all that amazing art in person and soak in our new ambience – and let us know where your favourite spot is inside by taking pictures and tagging us online with the hashtag #myhappyspot.


2. Jom #GEMBIRA promo – Buy 5 Free 1 (Retail Exclusive)

There are always plenty of reasons to smile at BookXcess, and now we’re giving you plenty more: Buy 5 books and get 1 free when you come shopping at our retail stores from now to 31 October! (The promo applies to all and any BookXcess books, and you get your lowest-priced book free.)

4. New arrivals on BookXcess Online

5. 5 word book reviews

Book reviews are great to gauge whether that hot new title is right for you. But the less time you spend reading reviews, the more time you get to spend reading actual books – and the more time you get to read books, the more #GEMBIRA we think you’ll be! That’s why we’ve introduced our shortest, snappiest recommendations yet. Check out our 5 word book reviews and decide if a title’s for you in just seconds!


You’ll find our latest review videos on Facebook and Instagram. Watch out for more!
