[BHE 411] My First Used Book Festival in Sharjah

Seventh Used Book Festival in Sharjah

Myra here.

When one of my graduate students mentioned this used book festival fair at Sharjah, I knew we had to do a trip here while we were spending the weekend in Dubai, as it was slightly closer to Sharjah, compared to Al Ain where I live.

We haven’t really had much of a chance to visit the other Emirates here in the UAE, so this gave us the perfect excuse to visit our Third Emirate (there are seven in total, very much like the Game Of Thrones with the seven kingdoms).

Unfortunately, we didn’t really have much time to look around, especially since we were touring my mother-in-law who was visiting us at the time. Hence, I only went to a specific section that has English titles and just scoured the titles there. I still did manage to find a few titles that spoke to me.
