MV Doulos - Books Books Books

Got a chance to visit "The Floating Book Fair" as they call MV Doulos.

Wonderful classics, fantastic books for the children (especially), books on religion, hobbies, dictionaries & books books books so many books. :-))

But, not many fiction books or the bestsellers (at least, I did not see them), except a few John Grisham books.

As the word spread, there were hordes of people, visiting the ship which is docked at the Mina Port in Abu Dhabi. The crew was helpful, ready with a smile on their face as they answered our queries. The ship will be here in Abu Dhabi till 03 Feb & then off it goes to Sharjah & the next port of call will be Doha. That is what the crew told us.

I would highly recommend people to take this opportunity to visit MV Doulos
& rediscover the joys of reading once again....

MV Doulos is in the Philippines up to January 15, 2008. It's a pity it will only visit Manila, Batangas and Subic and not my city--Davao. check my story http://datelinedavao.blogspot.com/
