BooksActually's Book Of The Month

How Do You Live?
by Genzaburo Yoshino

The streets of Tokyo swarm below fifteen year-old Copper as he gazes out into the city of his childhood. Struck by the thought of the infinite people whose lives play out alongside his own, he begins to wonder, how do you live?

Considering life's biggest questions for the first time, Copper turns to his dear uncle for heart-warming wisdom. As the old man guides the boy on a journey of philosophical discovery, a timeless tale unfolds, offering a poignant reflection on what it means to be human.

The favourite childhood book of anime master Hayao Miyazaki, How Do You Live? is the basis of a highly anticipated film from Studio Ghibli.

Beautiful World, Where Are You?
by Sally Rooney

'The literary phenomenon of the decade.' – Guardian
'The best novel published this year.' – The Times
'Rooney is such a gifted, brave and adventurous writer.' – Observer

Alice, a novelist, meets Felix, who works in a distribution warehouse, and asks him if he’d like to travel to Rome with her. In Dublin, her best friend Eileen is getting over a break-up, and slips back into flirting with Simon, a man she has known since childhood.

Alice, Felix, Eileen and Simon are still young—but life is catching up with them. They desire each other, they delude each other, they get together, they break apart. They have sex, they worry about sex, they worry about their friendships and the world they live in. Are they standing in the last lighted room before the darkness, bearing witness to something? Will they find a way to believe in a beautiful world?

The Story Of Our Tree!

Back in January, we donated $300 to the Garden City Fund's Plant-A-Tree programme. In February, our tree (still unnamed, let us know if you have any ideas!) was planted in Bedok Town Park! We hope to be able to donate as much as we can and we hope that you can join us :-)

The Plant-A-Tree Programme is a platform for organisations and individuals to actively participate in the greening of our city by planting trees. Every tree planted will also contribute to the OneMillionTrees movement to plant one million trees across Singapore over the next 10 years. This aims to restore nature back to our city and redouble our efforts to green our urban infrastructure on an unprecedented scale.
