Are your books gathering dust?

Then you can donate them to an initiative which helps our guests and the environment at the same time.

Line Nors Frandsen, who is Concept Manager in BU Short Routes and Passenger, is behind the initiative, and she says: “We want to make a bookcase where people can exchange books on board Crown Seaways and Pearl Seaways. Many of you may be familiar with the concept which has gained popularity in recent years. Guests may either borrow a book or exchange one for one of their own.”

“We hope that our guests will welcome this opportunity for a good read while taking in the beautiful sea view when looking up over their reading glasses. To get the project going, we need 100-150 books, so we are reaching out to our colleagues in the hope that you may have some pre-loved books on your shelves that you might want to donate. Any genre and language will do, however, we would prefer languages that match our passenger mix, so books in Danish, Norwegian, Swedish, Korean, Chinese, Thai, Japanese or English.”

If you have one or more books that you no longer read, you may hand them in to Line Nors Frandsen at DFDS House. She sits in the back of the room on the 2nd floor North, or to Linda Palmquist in the marketing department in Norway, who is located on the 2nd floor, Vippetangen, Skur 42. On board the vessels, you can hand in books to Business Leader Accommodation & Service.

The bookcase will be in the back of the area where Espresso House is located. Check it out next time you are on board the Oslo ferry.
