“Books By Your Side” is a book drop campaign that offers everyday readers a glimpse into SingLit in a casual setting. Where people would usually pick up a browsing copy of a magazine to flip through to pass time (like in a clinic or a hair salon), they will now also be able to choose from a few of our chosen titles that will help these unassuming readers to engage deeper with and gain an appreciation for local titles.

“Books By Your Side” aims to show how local books can be as entertaining and diverse as international ones, while still embracing the essence of Singapore culture. It also reaches out to a general audience who may or may not be avid readers, to raise awareness that SingLit titles are more accessible than they seem.
