A ‘Kuwait Book Fair’ is on the horizon. If you are into cheap Arabic paperbacks, social science books, academic journals by 3rd rate Arab institutions and language how-to-guides, held together by make-shift plywood counters and shelves, you are gonna love it. If you are searching for SKINNY BITCH, Khaled Hosseini’s THE KITE RUNNER, John Grisham’s PLAYING FOR PIZZA and other New York Times best-sellers, I suggest you look elsewhere. Like Borders and Virgin in Dubai or the new Borders in Muscat.

The Kuwait definition of irony is….Kuwait Book Fair Next Week and 230 Books Banned.
