SEOUL, Sept. 16 (Korea Bizwire) — A special bank account for reading where readers deposit a certain amount of money every time they finish reading a book is going viral on social media.
Typing in the name of the book every time the reader makes a deposit leaves a record of how many books he or she has read on an electronic bank statement or in a bankbook.
Readers can also watch their account grow in savings as they read more books.
Seoul’s Gasan Library and Doksan Library have been encouraging children and adults to read using the reading bank account since June.
The National Library of Korea, Sejong has been issuing bank books for reading for adults since when its opening in 2013.
