What we're about

Welcome to Jakarta Book Club. We are passionate about reading, and want to share it with other people. We are currently meeting once a month in cozy places across Jakarta (currently around South and Central Jakarta). Join us for lots of chatting, laughing and book swapping! Fiction, non-fiction, English, Indonesian, Spanish books, we welcome all! Let's keep reading ;)

PS. Check our calendar (http://www.meetup.com/Hang-out-with-Jakarta-Book-Club/events/) if you'd like to attend more sideline events, i.e. cards & board games night, book shopping tour, readers festival, etc.
