Default Book Club

Hello all,

I work with a bookstore chain here and love reading. I was wondering if anyone knew of a book club that I could be part of or if anyone would like to start one off?

We could meet twice a month and just have serious/very fun discussions. I read everything from Amis to Dan Brown so everyone is welcome.

I am currently reading this YA book If I Stay by Gayle Forman and have recently finished reading and loved Fredrick Forsyth's The Odessa File.

Thanks,
Ipshi

Hi Ipshi,

Im heading over to the bookstore this evening to find a good read. Will let you know what I come up with. Doubt I'd be of any use in a book club though, I barely find time to sit down and read a book so it usually takes me ages to finish one, unless I'm traveling!

There are many book clubs that meet in Dubai. Take a look at Time Out for details of some of them.

The Twitbook club is meeting next week.

Hello, Ipshi !

I am glad to come across a book-lover. I am an avid and voracious reader myself and love to discuss books with other enthusiasts.

Also, I have many books which I'd like to share with willing readers.

Do get in touch at your convenience.

Ipshi,

I just updated my earlier confusing profile; I live and work in Dubai.

As to what kind of books I read...well, mostly I read Mysteries & Thrillers, Psychological Suspense & Espionage, Science Fiction & Fantasy, Biographies & Travelogues, Humour & Satire, Real-Life Adventure, and a whole lot of Popular Science genre with a special emphasis on Artificial Intelligence and other related emerging technologies.

Ipshi,

I already have that book and it's been on my reading list for quite a while. I should be getting to it soon.

At the moment, I am reading one called 'Naked Economics - Undressing the Dismal Science' by Charles Wheelan. It's simply the best book out there for anyone who wants to understand the intellectual underpinnings of economics. Economics affects us all, and Wheelan makes his book highly informative as well as delightfully entertaining. I am half-way through it and loving it already.
