From late November to early December, six Aesop stores across Hong Kong will host installations that house books shared by avid readers—created for the discovery of new literary experiences—and they are inviting their customers to take part! Hosted as a book swapping event, you can simply bring the book you would like to swap to one of six Aesop shops, where consultants will gladly wrap the book and invite you to handwrite your musings about the work on the wrapping paper—without revealing its title.
Your donated book will then be kept in an in-store installation and await its next inspired reader! In exchange, you are warmly invited to browse through Aesop’s existing collection of books—each wrapped and accompanied with a thoughtful note from a fellow book lover—and bring home a brand-new title.

Covering the hottest new eats, the best places to play, offbeat takes on local culture, and so much more, Localiiz is every Hongkonger’s destination for how to live a well-rounded life in our vibrant city. Why the strange spelling? Well, Localiiz is designed to be your ‘local eyes’—and for that, you need two i’s.
