Read-Cycle This July at Pacific Coffee Emporium!

July 04, 2013 / by / 0 Comment

How’s everyone’s summer going? I know I’m enjoying the weather, the time and my summer reads :) Speaking of reading, I’ve recently come across a thing called Read Cycling that I’d like to share with you all!

Read Cycling is a non-profit organization established in 2009 that aims to promote reading, raise language and communication proficiency, and share the joy of reading with the community. They hold many events throughout the year dedicated to reading and books, such as donation events, author seminars and various reading or writing related competitions. The latest competition they held was a one-take video book review competition on YouTube. Readers can also create accounts on their website and post recommendations of books they enjoyed.

Currently, from July 1 to 31 Read Cycling is holding a book donation event at Pacific Coffee Emporium in Causeway Bay. They are accepting books that are at least 70% new, without tears, obvious folds, missing pages or markings and originally priced at HKD$30 or more. They will also not take in any textbooks, reference books or magazines for this current donation event.

If you happen to stop by any Pacific Coffee shops this month, also be sure to look out for Read Cycling donation boxes and feel free to donate and support the cause of sustainable reading! I know I’m going to be donating a hefty pile this Friday only to create another soon enough

Read/reading anything good so far this summer? I’d love to know in the comments below! I’ve just finished a short read by Julian Barnes called The Sense of An Ending. A skinny book of 150 pages, the novel is an interesting coming-of-age narrative that provokes much thought about cause-and-effect and how our actions always have a way of coming back to haunt us. Worth picking up if you’ve got 3-4 hours to spare on an aimless summer afternoon :)
