House Of Prose : Second-Hand Bookshop

Posted by Kero at Tuesday, April 26, 2011
After a lovely cup of frothiest flat white, I checked another recommendation from Dubai Confidential.It is called  House Of Prose, a second-hand book shop neatly tucked at the far end corner of Dubai Garden Center.


Two elderly men looked after the shop. As I moved closer to inquire, one stood up and gladly explained the concept. Everything is for sale, books are arranged alphabetically, there's a shelf for romance and cookery, etc.,. When I am done reading and the books are still in good condition, I can bring it back and they'll buy it for half the price.

Delighted at the prospect of  being able to read  for half the price and yet NOT add more to the storage room, I went back to the shelves and and took one work of John Grisham and two romance books hahahhaaaa! I would have browsed longer and check if there's another work of Margaret Atwood but it was time for my son's nap.

I paid 58AED for all three books. Then we went to check out counter to pay for  our  chosen fortune plant and a couple of plant boxes before driving back to Discovery Gardens.

I was smiling all the way home. I definitely found another favorite store =)

Hubby's purchase at Dubai Garden center. Ever the green thumb =)
