About Books & Beer

Melissa and Eileen met while campaigning for climate action in Copenhagen during the 2009 UN Climate Conference as part of a 12-member youth delegation from Singapore. Since then, the two have in their own ways worked to raise the general awareness of socio-environmental issues in Singapore – but they believe this idea might just be the best one yet!

They’ve refined the idea of a book swop to incorporate all that book lovers should enjoy: the exchange and passing on of books they love and authors they enjoy – or well, don’t wish to have on their bookshelves any longer; the sharing of mystic and wonder and intellectualism – with the like-minded and the awed; and the coming together of an eclectic mix – the eccentric and the electric and whoever you may be.

So come read and recycle, rehydrate and be regaled. The 4 Rs we all firmly believe in – in varying orders of importance!
