FAQs on (B)Read-a-Long

WHAT IS (B)READ-A-LONG?

(B)Read-a-Long is an activity organised by B:Read which encourages readers in Brunei to read one book together at a set time and later discussing about them. Each week, a set number of chapters is given for readers to read.

WHERE WILL DISCUSSIONS BE HELD?

Discussions will be made on the B:READ Bookswap group.

CAN ANYONE JOIN?

Yes! Of course! Even if you’re not in Brunei, you are encouraged to join! We don’t have membership!

HOW DID YOU GUYS SELECT THE BOOK FOR THE ACTIVITY?

We used a voting system on Facebook, voted by the public who are part of the group. Similarly, we encourage those who follow us on Twitter to vote too.

WHAT IS YOUR AIM WITH THIS?

Everyone has specific books they like to read. By picking books out of certain people’s comfort zones, we hope to expand people’s view in other genres. We also hope that this will create stronger solidarity in the reading community in Brunei by providing good discussions and forging friendships.

WILL THERE BE MORE (B)READ-A-LONG IN THE FUTURE?

Yes! We will be holding this several times per year.

I DON’T LIKE THE CURRENT BOOK SELECTED.

Hey, this isn’t a question! But if you don’t like the book, we do encourage you to at least try reading it. If you’re insistent to not like it, participate and vote in our next (B)Read-a-Long!
