Friendly People at Subang Jaya Book Exchange Programme

Jie Jie Nylusmilk told Mamarazzi about this Subang Jaya Book Exchange Programme(SJBEP) quite sometime ago but we never really got to go there till last weekend. 

SJBEP have this book exchange thingy every 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month.


No familiar with the area...pusing punya pusing found this ...Yay! it looks like the photo on their Facebook.

This is the place. There ! There!

Uiks!...door not open yet leh. 

Hey! something is happening....door opened. 

Got a sign....


Jeng! Jeng! Jeng! here are the books that Mamarazzi got for us from the exchange. 

No...no need to pay money one. Just go and take..

Ahemm ahemm...not actually "take" la. What we have to do is bring a book and "exchange" it with the books there. 


Mamarazzi saw a lot of interesting books there. 

Kiasu mode...shhh....she brought four books to there but she brought home six books. Nevermind la...next round she top up lo. 

Anyway, the people there are so friendly and neighbourly. Mamarazzi saw the organiser brought tidbits, coffee and soya milk for us to ngap. So nice. Made Mamarazzi paiseh a bit coz went there with "two bunch of banana" only (means empty handed)

Here are the books she managed to pick up.

 Gosh! what a gem! Pearl S Buck book!! It's a treasure!



Not much of kids book but Auntie Fay found me some. I took home one Mr Fox and The Stork book.

Looking forward to the next books exchange session. Mamarazzi already finished 3 books. Two more to go.

    No wont be getting back the books. It's for books that you have read and dont intend to keep anymore for various reason. kinda like Book Crossing
