The next time you are suffering from a bout of sleeplessness, you may head to the first, one-and-only 24-hour bookstore in town. Get lost among the stocked shelves filled with a near-endless supply of books — from words of knowledge from leaders of yesterday to a pinch of wisdom in book form to epic fantastical tales, perhaps you’ll find yourself in wonder and awe as you are transported to another imaginary universe.
Malaysia has often lacked a 24-hour bookstore option as compared to places like Japan or Taiwan. But now, that has changed with BookXcess @ Tamarind Square in Cyberjaya. Most notably, the bookstore is open 24/7, 365 days a year.
Insomniatic Bibliophiles, Rejoice!
This branch of the homegrown bookstore franchise features a 37,000 square foot space and more than 500,000 titles to choose from — more than ample space for you to explore and be lost in the multitude of books on offer.
As for the facilities, the premises has an expansive book area separated by topics and genre, and there’s also a children’s area to occupy the little ones if it comes down to it. There are various spacious nooks and crannies for people to sample books they’re interested in before purchasing. And if you’re a solitary reader, individual reading desks are also available.
Otherwise, the large bookstore also contains two event spaces and a stage. And for those who are inclined to indulge in a cup of joe while they read, there’s a café in the bookstore as well. Also, the free Wi-Fi and airconditioning encapsulate the perfect reading environment — regardless of the time of day.
If you need fuel to keep yourself going, the aforementioned Café Wolf is all you need for your dose of caffeine.
