This is a 1st meet-up of "Litbreakfast" - Dubai book club that is following a special format, the one that I loved in Moscow. In "LitBreakfast" club we gather not to discuss one certain book, but to read out loud our favorite pages from the books we like. Why do I like it, why do I want to continue this tradition in Dubai? - Because it is artisitc - you enjoy reading yourself and other people reading: - because you get to know very different kinds of literature, very diverse reading tastes; - because of beauty of the language and literature - that you don't notice sometimes when reading in silence; - because you meet new people interested in Literature; - because of because of the unique uniting feeling that listening to books together gives. Simple rules that we have: - Everyone is welcome. Bringing kids is allowed as far as they stay quiet. - You can read from any book you like: proze, poetry, fiction, non-fiction, real book, e-book, printout... Anything, except self-written. - All people read in circle, one after another. - Everyone reads for 5-7 minutes, but in one club meeting we can make up to 3-4 circles, so rather big parts can be read in the end. - If you don't feel like reading today, are most welcome to stay and just listen. - We usually gather in cafes, so people are welcome to place orders, eat and drink while others are reading - just quietly. - If members decide, a certain club meeting can have a special theme, like "Xmas", or "Friendship", or "America", or anything. If not - everyone reads whatever they feel like. - You must read in English, except for poetry - that can be read in the original with a following translation in English. - You can name the author and the book, or keep it secret, or name it in the end of the meeting. - You can be as artistic in your performance as you please. You can read by heart too!

Please join!
