BookXcess is offering one lucky bookworm and their friend an exclusive one-night getaway in their Tamarind Square, Cyberjaya outlet

The newly-opened BookXcess outlet is the biggest bookstore in Malaysia and the first that is open 24/7.

The 'Once Upon A Sleepover' contest aims to encourage a love of reading and instill the idea that books enable people to travel to a different world.

To make this dream a reality, BookXcess partnered up with leading community-driven hospitality company Airbnb

Airbnb will help transform a space in BookXcess @ Tamarind Square into a cosy bedroom for two. And yes, bathing facilities will be prepared as well.

From the photos, we can already tell we would never want to leave.

Here is how your story will unfold for the night:

During the day, play the part of a book caretaker to half a million books

For a truly immersive experience, the winning pair will also play the part of a bookstore employee for the weekend.

In the bookstore management "crash course", the winners will learn to work a cash register, how to pick books for the store, and interact with customers who make their way in.

When the sun has set, fall into conversation about the books that inspire travel the most with BFM89.9's late-night book club

BFM89.9's Umapagan Ampikaipakan will be hosting the late-night book club.

When morning arrives, the winning duo will be the author of their own adventures by writing about their "special hyper local Airbnb Experience" at BookXcess.

BookXcess previously held a "basket dash" at their Tamarind Square outlet in July.
