S (swatiraisinghani) | 10 comments This group discussion has been created to point out the fact that there aren't any book rentals or libraries in RAK.
If there are any people in RAK who are interested in starting something like this, please feel free to comment in this group!!
Hope to hear from someone soon!
:) :)
PS: It would be lovely if everyone could introduce themselves!!

Let me be the first one!! :D
Hi! My name is Swati and I am 22 years old. I am a crazy book person and love reading! I have a small collection of personal books & I buy most of the books as there aren't any libraries here. :(
There used to be a library open to public and was run by a very sweet lady called Ann in the old British Council building but it was shut down quite sometime back.
Lets see if we can come up with something!!! :D

Jewel | 41 comments Yeah I heard about it but didn't have enough info, thanks for sharing Swati.

Are we looking for something like a Book swap?

Or second hand books?

We probably can arrange that here.

Problem is I'm more on ebooks now, because we didn't have bookstores here!

S (swatiraisinghani) | 10 comments Book swap sounds good. :) :)
I started using ebooks in the last one year cause of the same reason though my ebooks are more harlequin romance and fiction. I use Ipad so most of them are in epub format and if I may put it indirectly not originals.
I have a bunch of new books to keep me busy at the moment. If this discussion goes in any approachable direction I am all ears for it.

Jewel | 41 comments I have a kindle, so I mostly use that.
But I do read the occasional ePub as well.

S (swatiraisinghani) | 10 comments I have a bunch of authors in ebooks, if you want to know more about, let me know, I could send you the names

Jewel | 41 comments Thanks Swati.
