About Us


We are an Independent family-run Bookstore with a passion for the written word and an experience of over 25 years in the book industry. Booktopia is our first book venture in the UAE and from the beginning, the focus was to create a community based business where “Books” are the Heroes and “Reading Books” the vision.


“You cannot invent an algorithm that is as good
at recommending books as a good bookseller”

John Green

So true! We believe that the advantage of an Independent physical bookstore is for Book lovers to walk in, see, touch and feel the books and more importantly to have someone to talk about it! Everyone in the Booktopia team are fundamentally ardent book lovers and we take a lot of pleasure guiding you around the store. In Short, we are your “Human Blurbs”…

If you still don’t believe it, Walk in to our store at Dubai Festival City Mall or Join our community of Booklovers on Social Media and get to know us!
