What we're about

Good books, good company and good wine - what more could you ask for? It's all in the title guys - if you're interested in reading good books and discussing them over a few drinks, this group is for you. We meet monthly at The Restaurant located at the 3rd floor of The Address Boulevard Hotel (which is easily accessible from the dubai mall metro tunnel) . Variety is the spice of life so we will read books from different genres alternating between fiction and non fiction every other month. Every month, the next book and (probably) the next venue will be decided by the people who are there.


Q: Is it okay if I don't read the book before I attend the Meetup? Can I attend the Meetup even if I haven't read the book under discussion?

A: This is a book club, after all! We do ask that you read one of the books under discussion before attending the Meetup. While we are a social group as well, keeping the book club format allows for a high quality of discussion and enjoyable experience for everyone.

Q: I can't find a copy of the book!

A: For physical copies in the UAE, try Kinokuniya in the Dubai Mall or a Borders or WH Smith branch. Sometimes we choose books that are harder to find - try looking for an ebook copy. Many titles are available on iTunes and Amazon Kindle (you do not need a Kindle to read a Kindle ebook).

If you have a library membership in the US or UK, you may be able to check out many ebook titles electronically. If you're still stuck, try asking other group members for suggestions in the comments.

We choose titles well in advance to give you time to order a copy if necessary.
