Follow our FB page to interact with other members 

Who are we? A group of cultivated minds (male and female!) from all walks of life, sharing our passion for books.

What do we like to read? Out of a multitude of genres, we focus primarily (but not exclusively) on modern fiction with a side of non-fiction. As club members democratically choose the books, we are open to any book as long as members vote for it. Here's the link to our reading list (books we read in the past): http://www.meetup.com/Bibliophiles-Dubai-Book-Club/pages/Reading_list/
Any member can nominate books for us to vote on using this form:

Language: We discuss the books that are available in English (either translated to English from original language or written in English). The discussions during meetups are conducted in English. Members are welcome to read the books in other languages they are familiar with but in order for all of us to understand each other the discussions are in English only. :) 

When do we meet? The meetups are at 6.30 pm every third Sunday (3 weeks between each session). The average session takes about 2 hours; it also depends on the number of people attending and how discussion-inspiring the book is.
