Video games to spark interest in books | Geek Therapy |
A joint initiative by the National Library Board and Singapore's Cybersports and Online Gaming Association (SCOGA) is using video games to spark gamers' interest in books.


The "Game2Read" event, held at the National Library Building over the weekend, aims to encourage reading among the gaming community.


Gamers can pick up e-books related to their favourite video games at MediaCorp's ilovebooks booth and look up bits of trivia.


"It's an event that basically encourages youth, mainly gamers, to develop more healthy digital habits," said Aaron Khoo, chairman of SCOGA. "In this case, it will be reading, so we call it part of our cyber-wellness initiative."
