Why I Love Jakarta Book Club

Why and how people like Jakarta Book Club, as quoted from them:
“Jakarta book club really makes my world ‘smaller’. I get to meet people who know someone I know from high school, college, or work.”

“Without this kind of book club, how else we are going to get new friends? With our current busyness and pace of life, it’s really difficult to meet people outside our circle.”

“This book club forces me to read books outside my ‘comfort zone’.”

“I could discuss weird and complicated subjects from a book with other people.”

Our next JBC meetup has 55+ RSVP, probably 35 will come (cuz that’s the max limit of access card). Eventually, we will need our own library. #dream

Hang Out with JBC Friends & Big Bad Wolf Team

Weekend with the JBC gank. After meeting the Big Bad Wolf team, we drove to frenchie for lunch. Got to know them better; 2 auditors, 1 graphic designer, 1 college musician, 1 travel startup employee, and myself. Suddenly we talked about where we would be 10 years from now… Will we still be reading books together? Who will manage the club, etc… 

I think the club should have an apprentice in the next few years. But, in terms of books, I think the older we get, the more we’d benefit from this kind of friendship/ gathering. We will always be readers, only the books would “grow” adjusting to our age.

Big Bad Wolf books sale is going to be held at ICE, BSD City, from April 30 to May 8. On weekends & holidays, they will be open 24 hours. The cheapest price tag for a book is Rp 40,000, while the most expensive one is priced at Rp 250,000. #BBWJakarta #booksale
