Knowledge afloat

Here’s a cool idea: a floating book fair. It offers Arabic and English books, and the object is to “nurture cultural understanding”.

Now docked at Abu Dhabi Free Port, but open to visitors from all over the UAE. According to the Guinness Book of World Record it’s also the oldest active ocean-going passenger ship

    Its got a nice collection of books at good prices. When it came last time (1998), they had an AMAZING collection of reader’s digest past issues.

    A must see for all book reading buffs and their souvenir mug is also beau!

    Any chance that it will be coming to Dubai port? I’m really not a book addict except when its about gadgets or cars, but i’d love to check it out.
