Wednesday Walk | Underground Tunnel Bookstore!

23일 전

Ever walk through a tunnel with walls of books! Here's one!

BookXcess Bookstore, Sunsuria Forum @ 7th Avenue, Setia Alam, Malaysia.

We were very excited that this bookstore finally opens! We are always around this outdoor mall to do grocery shopping during its renovations, we were puzzled at the beginning what it's going to be with such high bookshelves, is it for decorations or something? After a few months, an announcement poster was put out saying BookXcess Bookstore is going to open here.

We always thought it's just going to be a normal bookstore's with a very high bookshelf, who would have thought the bookstore would have such unique architecture and went 'Underground" to built a tunnel up!


Let me take you for a walk around this place!

We shall start from the lower ground basement. I love how they play around their words everywhere in the store.

This display already caught my attentions and gets me all excited!

Here's the entrance.

This place is huge! I don't even know where I should start looking. Though they do have a very good direction signage everywhere on the black colour walls.

They a have an in-house cafe called "Cafe Wolf". Why is it called Wolf? Well, a little bit history about this bookstore then.

BookXcess has been famous for organising large scale of book fair every year, and it's called "Big Bad Wolf" with the cheapest price I have ever seen. And Wolf has become their signature ever since. In recent years they have gone beyond the norm, by organising fair for 2 weeks, 24 hours non-stop. I have been to the book fair a few times, 3 am at night till 6-7 am finishing with breakfast, how awesome is that!

Okay, enough of the history, let's get back to this walk again,

They also sell amazing art posters, in all sizes.

And do community services, by letting the customer donate books to the local libraries.

Spacious reading room for customers, students, family with kids to have a relaxing and quiet place to read books. I might consider coming here to work since the place is quiet, they serve coffee and they have free wi-fi!

I'm not sure if you realised, the lights at the ceiling look like tons of Jedi Lightsabers hanging everywhere!! Haha

The Wolfs sure have some sense of humour I tell you!


Here' comes the tunnel you have been waiting for!

Look at the circular staircase! I love the view of it.

Even more of those Jedi Lightsabers hanging around!

Look how high this shelves are! I don't think those books are for grabs though.

The view looking down from the ground floor. Let's look up again from the outside in the next photo.

The last view of the day, from the back of this bookstore! This one looks like a spaceship!

I haven't really had a proper walk in this bookstore yet, as normally I will take hours and hours to finish one shop. Next time I will bring my laptop and write my post here.

Thanks for joining me on this walk, see you in my next post!

Howdy joelai! That is the most unusual bookstore I've ever seen! How fun, plus it seems like a combination restaurant, bookstore and library. No wonder you could spend all day there! That place is so cool with such creative styling and lighting.


Howdy janton!! I know right, the place is so cool! I might be spending more time over there from now on.


So you are saying that you read alot of books and buy alot of books? I used to read books but now I just read on steemit!


Yup, I have lots of books stuff inside boxes, nowhere to put now! Hehe


Oh, so your house could look like a bookstore if you had enough shelves, very cool!


Yup, I used to imagine I will have a whole wall of book shelves for my books!


Are you what they call a Book Worm joelai? Someone whose favorite pastime is reading? That's why you like Steemit isn't it? lol.


Sort of... I am... Hehehe
