Looking for something to read? Got a book you keep meaning to read but haven't gotten around to it? We can help!
TwitBookClub is all about what YOU want to do and read as an individual. Our aim is to help you rekindle your love for all things reading and the reading experience. We're here to fuel healthy book discussion and to help you decide what it is you want to read next.
Established December 14, 2009 @TwitBookClub is a UAE-based bookworm community which meets every 3rd Saturday of the month from 1100 up until about 1400 at Coffeol Emaar Boulevard (near Dubai Mall, location details here). We also live tweet our meetings, so those who can't make it to a meeting are able to follow along and join our discussions via Twitter or catch up with things later. If members can't make a meeting, they can always email us with their reviews and book suggestions, and we'll include them in our discussions.
When it comes to reading, TwitBookClub will help you decide what's worth your time and what's best left alone. We're not here to force you to read books you don't want to; but the community is offering up lots of choices for your consideration every month. The choice of what to read (regardless of our four monthly selections) is entirely up to each individual. We don't always discuss just the recent bestsellers; our choices are selected by the community, which means we read a variety of genres both fiction and non-fiction. We follow the "Anything Goes" road when it comes to discussing specific books. In addition, from time to time we also have authors joining us for a Q&A session about one of their books.
Joining TwitBookClub is easy: all you have to do is show up to one of our monthly meetings or join our live discussion via Twitter. It doesn't matter whether you've read any of our current choices or not. There's no paperwork to fill out & there's no membership fees to pay. For more on how we work, see our FAQ page.
If you'd like to get involved with us and help us out with organising & planning events outside of our meetings e-mail or Tweet us @TwitBookClub anytime.
Every 3rd Saturday of the month (see list of meeting dates below for exact dates). From 1100 (discussion starts at 1130)
