Zuhaib Hassan | 24 comments Hi All,

I have an idea. I hope most of you will like! Why not schedule a meeting for UAE Good readers members somewhere in Dubai. So, we can share our knowledge, Experience.
Positive thoughts and initiative will be appreciated.

Regards,
Zuhaib Hassan
UAE Good Readers Member

Shruthi Vijayan | 1 comments Wouldn't it be better if we could choose a book - read it and then meetup to discuss it ? There is an Abu Dhabi Book Club that already does this, though. - Just thought it would fit for a goodreads meeting :)


message 7: by Zuhaib (new)

Zuhaib Hassan | 24 comments I second you @Shruthi.. lets wait for the response and we will select a book after that.

Michelle (michellesibs) | 21 comments @Zuhaib - sounds perfect to me, im away a fair bit in August, as i guess most people are as its holiday season, so perhaps we can sort something for September time?

DubaiReader | 44 comments My book group is meeting to discuss The Home by Karen Osman this Tuesday. If you can grab a copy you'd be welcome to join us at 8pm Sunset Mall.
The author will join us at 8.45 :)

Melanie (melanielibrarian) | 13 comments Hey Zuhaib! Let's meet up on Saturday for a chat about our reading? I think a couple other folks would want to meet and greet and talk books eh?
Let's go for Saturday at 5p.m. at Starbucks on the Ground level of Dubai Mall? Hope that is suitable, easy to find. Let's sit outside, near the fountain area?
Any others are welcome to join!

Hope so, I'd love to meet you. Best wishes!

Sauod Almutawa | 3 comments Hey guys,
How about a meetup in Dubai, somewhere between the end of Feb to mid of March?
I’m a heavy reader on my field’s literature, if we’re discussing fiction and such, please throw me a reference or two to chew on till then xD

Chafic (Rello) (irrell) | 3 comments If you guys are looking for a good place to have this meetup - there's a large courtyard inside of the Gold & Diamond Park in front of FAB Metro Station.

Has some seating for the cafe there, lots of shade and it's also right in front of The Old Library. (Yes, there's a full-blown library in Dubai - https://www.theoldlibrary.ae/ )

Full Disclosure - I'm actually one of the many volunteer librarians at the library, do come by and say hi ^_^

Lots of bookish people around and it's a great atmosphere to just talk all things books-related!

Michelle (michellesibs) | 21 comments Sauod, just to let you know the event for the 23rd got cancelled, we are now meeting on the 21st - link below :)
