Emirates 24|7 is encouraging its readers to gather as many books as they can and build a ‘House of Books’ with them – along the lines of House of cards.

The best three entries will get an Apple iPad each - for free!

“This is our campaign to support the #UAEReads initiative implemented by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to mark 2016 as the Year of Reading in the UAE,” said Khadeeja Al Marzooqi, Editor-in-Chief of Emirates 24|7.

“We have designed it in such a way as to make it fun for readers while at the same time enhancing reading habits in the UAE,” she added.

Of the books used by readers in building their House of Books, there must be at least five that readers will promise to either read or re-read.

Once the House of Books has been built, readers can send in a picture of their creation to Emirates 24|7 - as well to the E24|7 Instagram account tagging us []

The competition has been extended due to popular demand as entries continue to come in.

The winners will be published by Emirates 24|7.
