Book World by Kinokuniya at The Dubai Mall
Stepping through the entrance, one cannot help but be in awe of this massive bookstore. And why not, with more than half a million titles and thousands of magazines under its roof, Book World by Kinokuniya at The Dubai Mall is the largest book store in Dubai. Covering an area of 68000sq.ft, rows and rows of neatly stacked books and magazines are all that the eye can see.

From New Arrivals and Best Sellers to Literature, Travel, Hobbies & Craft, Food & Drink and Performing Arts; you name it, they have it. There also is a stationary section and an art gallery showcasing little figurines of famous movie characters, which is quite interesting.

Stocking 29 different categories under English books/magazines and books in 6 languages (English, Arabic, German, Japanese, French and Chinese), it won’t be surprising if you do not know where to start from. The store is as good as a library and provides excellent resources for research purposes. There is a little gallery within the store where book connoisseurs can pick up a book and read to their hearts content.

A reader’s paradise? This is where it is!
