UAE’s Citizen Book is sending secret books to readers’ doors

If you love reading then you’re probably like us and spend a lot of time wondering which book to pick up next.

You can never have enough books either. At any given time we have three new ones on our shelves, but the desire to acquire more is powerful and we always cave.

Looking for something to read and fancy something a little bit different?

Citizen Book has launched in the UAE to offer readers a blind date with a book, selected just for them.

Readers can log on to Citizen Book’s Instagram page and fill out the application form to start the process.

The form asks readers about books they’ve read, enjoyed and the genres they are interested in, as well as other questions about their preferences and interests so that the team can match the perfect book to the reader.

Once the form is completed you pay a total of Dhs85, including delivery, and wait for your mystery book to arrive.

The package sent will include a secret book selected for the reader as well as a few other small items catered to the individual.

So if you want to treat yourself or get a quirky gift for a friend or loved one who likes to read, then Citizen Book could be the place to go.

Plus, with each purchase made the organisation donates an academic book to a child in Africa, so you’re also paying it forward with your purchase.

What book will you get? There’s only one way to find out.
