Something FUN has come up… I’ve partnered with online reading community Definitely Books to do this passion project, which I call #SG50books50days 🙂

Over 50 (non-consecutive) days starting from TODAY, I’ll be putting 50 books in 50 different locations around Singapore. These books are all about Singapore and/or by Singaporean writers, and yes, it’s basically FINDERS KEEPERS… In other words… FREE! 

If you’re a fellow book nerd like me and you’re wondering about that list of books, here’s the 50 titles:

  1. Hello Ning,

    I found yesterday Marina Bay Sins and I’m so glad I was the lucky one! What a cool idea!!!! The book is now with me in Bangkok. tomorrow it will follow me in Laos, then Cambodia, Malaysia and shall end at my place in Paris.

    I’m so fond of Singapore that even the book topic is of great interest to me.
    I can’t wait to read it.

    I hope we’ll stay in touch.

    And congratulations again for that cool/fantastic idea ! (I almost cried my eyes out when reading your nice post-it :))


    • Bonjour Stéphane 🙂 Cava bien?

      MERCI BEAUCOUP for reaching out to me… I’m super thrilled to hear from you! Safe travels and enjoy the read. Keep in touch. Please don’t be a stranger 😉

      xo Ning

  2. Hi, I think this is a very nice idea. Do you mind if I did the same thing in Indonesia? I will credit your name & instagram account if you don’t mind. Thanks 🙂

    • Sure thing! It’d be great!
