Our Story

In the year 2014, two strangers came together for the love of reading and this the only thing we follow in our little book club. Ifrah Waqar and Farman Shams laid the foundation for “#KHIBookSwap” on August 16, 2014 with only a handful of bookworms and a deliciously unrealistic dream. The idea behind the book club was to bring together people of all ages in the name of books and reading. We are devoted to promoting the culture of reading and perhaps encourage the entire country to inculcate this habit for the long-run.


We are Pakistan’s first ever Book-Swapping Book Club. With our various monthly activities, quizzes, competitions, reviews and panel-discussions, we are dedicated towards achieving our unrealistic dream, a city that feeds on books. We plan to extend our book club community in other cities including Hyderabad, Lahore and Islamabad. Our platform will continue to be one, under name of the #KHIBookSwap and we will establish various chapters to the club based on the cities involved.

We stay true to our motto: “We do books…in every possible way…” and we look forward to YOU joining our community and fighting to keep the written word alive!


Co-founders: Farman Shams and Ifrah Waqar.
