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

In May, we want to have a closer look at human's mind and the reasons behind our behaviors. Are we born happy? Are we determined by our upbringing or by genetics? Why does everyone try to be "normal"?

“The human mind is generally far more eager to praise and dispraise than to describe and define.” ― C.S. Lewis

Expect to hear review on books like "American Psycho" by Bret Easton Ellis, "Dataclysm" by Christian Rudder, "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close" by Jonathan Safran Foer, "Hector and the Search for Happiness" by François Lelord, "The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat" by Oliver Sacks, and more (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.

This event will be conducted in Bahasa Indonesia and English. This FREE event is kindly supported by GEPI ( and (
