message 12: by F (new)

F R | 4 comments I just finished reading Outliers by Malcom Gladwell and I advise anyone to read it. It's fascinating how the book shows that we are just products of our environment and culture.

Abdullah Mohammed | 2 comments Hello, has anyone ordered from Book Depository before ?


message 16: by Dodah (new)

Dodah I did . they are amazing don't worry . Book Depository is the best .


message 17: by Abdullah (new)

Abdullah Mohammed | 2 comments I ordered for the first time from them but was a bit worried because they don't provide a tracking number, but thank you ohood :).. Do you know nearly how much it takes for the order to be delivered here in KSA ?


message 18: by Dodah (new)

Dodah yes that is worrisome . and mostly there late like a good 5 weeks mostly 3 weeks . and rarely 10 days . but if you thought you order was too late . you could email them and they'll send you another copy . I sometimes end up getting 2 copies of the same book because it got lost in the mail


message 19: by Afra (new)

Afra Amir | 7 comments Hmm... is there any way we can borrow books from somewhere in saudi...? It's hard to read ebook and book shops here are too expensive


message 20: by Sara (new)

Sara | 4 comments There is a government library in Riyadh.


message 21: by Afra (new)

Afra Amir | 7 comments Ooh... but I live in dammam area.... do you know any library around here?

Naiha Abid (nmlifeinwords) | 1 comments I guess I joined too late. Hey guys, I'm from Khobar and willing to lend books to whoever promises to not damage them and return once finished.
I would really like to have a group where we share reads , let me know if there's already one.

if so, I'm interested in joining it. I'm willing to exchange English books with whomever.
also, any reading recommendations?


message 32: by Hassan (new)

Hassan G | 14 comments @kitkat Hello
Sadly the group hadn't been active for a while .. but I'm willing to do the same
I'd recommend The Orange Girl by Jostein Gaarder
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
And The long way to a small, angry plant by Becky Chambers


message 33: by Kikat (new)

Kikat | 9 comments that's too bad.
thanks for the suggestions! I'll start reading Night Circus.
I've noticed a public library in front of Sheraton Hotel, has anyone been to it before?


message 34: by Hassan (new)

Hassan G | 14 comments If it's the same place in my head then I've been there with my elementary school over 15 years ago and it hasn't changed one bit .. so I wouldn't count on that lol

I'm glad you will, hope you enjoy it much as I did!!


message 35: by Kikat (new)

Kikat | 9 comments lol there goes my hope of public library.
I think I'll wait for Ethraa to go public.


message 36: by Hassan (new)

Hassan G | 14 comments I'm counting the days for that too


message 37: by Dodah (new)

Dodah You should start a book club or a read along for the night circus I’m sure a lot of people would jump in . I’ve always wanted to read it but never got motivated to do so . And now I know it’s historical fiction I’m dreading it even more . I nead a reading body to help me get through (drama😅) . You know what maybe I should start a read along🧐 .
