Bookish.ae Brings the Library to You in Dubai!
Books can be your best friends – once you fall in love with reading, you will never be bored or sit around with nothing to do. Now you can read books you’ll love with a new book rental service in Dubai called Bookish.ae.
Bookish.ae is an online library that delivers all over Dubai. They have thousands of adult fiction, adult nonfiction, teen & young adult, and children’s books – all accessible from their mobile-friendly website (so you can even request books from your mobile or tablet).
Joining online only takes 2 minutes! They have membership plans that vary by the number of books you want, including special plans for little ones. Just select the plan that is best suited for you, start picking out books, and schedule your free delivery. You can take as long as you want to finish a certain book – they don’t believe in due dates or late fees. Choose the next batch only when you are ready.
Renting books is much cheaper than buying them so you can save a lot of dirhams. Moreover, you have the option of exchanging a book for another if you don’t like it after reading a few chapters, which is something that can’t be done with a book you have purchased. Bookish.ae also spares you the trouble of going to the bookstore every time you or your kids wish to read something new and exciting – no muss no fuss!
As if saving on books and getting them delivered to your home or office wasn’t enough, Bookish.ae also offers free events for its members. One of their most unique programs is The Very Ready Reading Program, a comprehensive early literacy story time program developed by child psychologists and librarians in the United States. This free story time not only gets your children interested in reading but also teaches you how to help them at home. The family that reads together – stays together!
Membership plans start at only AED 49 per month. Pay month-to-month or join for 6 months and get 1 month free.
Bookish.ae is located in Office 2008, HDS Business Centre, Cluster M, Jumeirah Lakes Towers, Dubai.
