She further elaborated that the target group for this reading event comprised of schools, universities, private and public sector workers, corporate bodies, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), library users, and the general public.

The programme at the college kicked off with Puan Azlina Ngatimin, Director, Corporate Relations and Development, filling up her forms of participation for the event. She was then followed by staff and students of the college. Everyone has already been distributed some form of reading material before the programme officially started. A bookmark was given as a gift of appreciation to all participants.

As we all know, reading is a wonderful way to transport one’s mind into the imaginative and creative realm. Books stimulate the brain, expand ideas, and may give one a positive outlook in life. Life becomes much more interesting when there are new avenues to be explored. Other than trying for a place in The Malaysian Book of Records, this programme is indeed a unique way of bringing the people together. Yes, it was for only 10 minutes! But, know that in every minute of our day, it is a chance to change one’s life for the better.
