Fancy playing hide and seek with books?

Starting from today to 24 February, there’ll be 50 published books hidden all across Singapore’s 5 heartland areas!

Placed in public spaces such as walkways, benches, parks and void decks, you will get to keep a book if you find it.

What’s this all about?

A project supported by the National Arts Council, the Buy SingLit movement aims to celebrate Singapore’s literature.

Advocating ‘Buy Local, Read Our World’, homegrown book publishers, retailers and literary non-profits have come together, all in the effort of encouraging the discovery and appreciation of stories from Singapore, by Singaporeans.

Epigram Books has joined in the Buy SingLit Project with the ‘SingLit Heartland Book Drop’. The 50 hidden books are from Epigram books and will include picture books, chapter books, graphic novels, literary fiction and many more.

Through this initiative, Epigram Books hopes that more people will discover and enjoy Singapore’s literature, as well as support local writers.

When you’ve found a book, tag @epigrambooks on Instagram. Include the hashtags #BuySingLit, #HoldSGInYourHands and the serial number on the book. You’ll receive an e-voucher for a discount on your next purchase with Epigram Books.

So put on your running shoes, grab an empty backpack, and get ready to pick up some books!
