Magrudy’s began trading in 1975, and quickly became a central part of Dubai life. At first selling mainly educational toys and school supplies, children’s books formed part of our very first offering. By popular request, new categories were quickly added: mother and baby, cookery, fiction and so on. We had to open a second shop to fit in all the books, which were by this point the biggest part of our business.

The second book by author Harper Lee, who is known for her novel To Kill a Mockingbird, will be available at some UAE book stores on July 14.
The new novel Go Set a Watchman, will be released 55 years after the publication of the author’s first novel, which became a sensation worldwide.
Magrudy’s has confirmed that the book will be available at their stores on July 14, at the price of Dh99.
UAE book stores Kinokuniya and Borders said they are waiting to receive the books, which may be available on the release date. An attendant at Kinokuniya told Gulf News that Lee’s new novel has been sent for approval by the National Media Council and its release date at their store has not been set yet. Meanwhile, an attendant at Borders said while the release date is unknown, the new novel can be delivered to new customers upon special order.
Go Set a Watchman is said to feature many of the characters from To Kill a Mockingbird around 20 years later.
