A good book

If a friend is heading off on their travels, perhaps they’d enjoy a book from Borders to read on the plane. Or if you really want to spoil them, why not go for an e-reader from one of our department or electronics stores at My City Centre Deira? That way they can pack on as many books as they want and still have plenty of room in their luggage.
