Clear a space on your bookshelf…

Bibliophiles, brace yourself. Your TBR pile is about to get a lot longer because there is a huge book sale taking place in Dubai this week.

Taking place at Times Square Center on Sheikh Zayed Road, you can pick up books with discounts going up to 75 per cent. The sale lasts for only five days from Thursday, April 18 to 21, 2024. The sale begins at 10am and closes at 10pm at night, so you have plenty of time to go and visit.

What can you expect at the book sale?

Well, a lot of books of course. The event page has stated that visitors can expect over 60,000 titles on sale at the event.

While we love a preloved book sale, the books here are all new, so you’ll love the feel of the crisp new pages in your hand as you enjoy your choice of page-turner.
