Libri International Bookstore, Budapest

Wednesday, March 26th, 2008



When I was living abroad before, English bookstores were almost impossible to find. There was one large used bookstore in Prague (the Globe), which had at best an eclectic selection (the owners had people buy books at garage sales in the US and ship them over). There was a very expensive, very nice English bookstore in Moscow next to the KGB building in the early 90’s.

I was very surprised at how well-stocked the Libri bookstore on Vaci Utca in Budapest is. Two floors of English language books. The second photo is just their selection of recent science fiction titles. Certainly beats Readmore in New Castle, Indiana …
