UberBOOK: Read While You Ride

When you leave the driving to us, the time you spend getting around town truly becomes your own. As part of our partnership with the Emirate’s Literature Festival we are making your ride even more cozy, by turning your Uber ride into your favorite reading nook.

From March 1 – 12th, we will be placing books featured by the Emirate’s Literature Festival inside Ubers across Dubai, creating a moving book exchange. You can participate in the UberBOOK exchange by leaving your gently used books in their Uber, reading while you ride, and even taking a book with you if you like.



  1. Open or download the Uber app for iOS or Android
  2. Set your location and request a ride
  3. Bring your used books along on your next Uber ride and take one if you like
  4. Be sure to share what you are reading with us @Uber_UAE using #UberBOOKME


Heading to the Emirate’s Literature Festival? As an official partner, you can grab an Uber to or from the event. New users can enter promo code ‘EAFOL16’ to get AED60 off your first ride and of from the venue.

Already have Uber? Use promo code ‘LitFest16’ to save 20% on your Uber rides to and from the venue all week.

Happy reading!
