In a press statement announcing the book store’s highly anticipated launch, BookXcess announced that it opened its eighth store at Gurney Paragon Mall. An excerpt from the book chain’s statement reads,

“Dubbed ‘The House of a Million Stories’, the bookstore is a dream come true for customers in the Northern Region as they are now able to purchase a wide range of quality English books at 50% – 80% off recommended retail price.”

On top of its impressive collection of books, this new outlet also features the longest bookshelf in Malaysia, measuring at 70 metres in length, as well as another two-storey bookshelf that’s 10 metres! Sounds like it could rival that huge library in Beauty and the Beast, wei!
