It’s undeniable that books are vitamins for the brain and those who read will see the world beyond what it really is.
Believing in the same vision, the annual “Book Exchange Meet-Up” ran again last Saturday with hundreds of bookworms participating at the Factory, Phnom Penh.
Aiming to promote reading habits among youth and encouraging them to explore a wide range of different books by exchanging their favorite with each other, the Book Exchange Meet-up attracted not only locals, but also many foreigners to visit at the event.
Consisting of more than 400 books, collected largely from book donations, the exchange of books was conditional on the fact that only those who had original books and not copies, no magazines or newspapers were allowed. Works of fiction were allowed but excluded Mormon bibles.
As a year passed, the event has been held for every month at the same venue where the readers can share and exchange their books to read new experiences.
