Jakarta Book Club ( is a monthly book club started in 2010.

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” - Mark Twain

This month, we will share opinions and thoughts on travel-related books; the range is broad, from Lonely Planet's guide books to history books to travel journals. Fiction and non fiction, English and Indonesian books are welcome. Event will be conducted in both Bahasa Indonesia and English.

Expect to hear review on books like "On the Road" by American writer Jack Kerouac, "Among the Russians" by Colin Thubron, "A Concise Chinese-English Dictionary for Lovers" by Xiaolu Guo, and "The Sun Also Rises" by Ernest Hemingway (to be updated).

Agenda of event:

• book reviews & discussion
• book swap
• chat & games

PS. There will be book swapping at the end of the event, so bring your old book(s) and expect to bring home a "new" one!

Let's read more books, share and swap them with other book lovers. Feel free to invite more people. Feel free to bring snacks and drinks. Feel free to dress casually. We want to welcome you.
