The charity shops in Paphos have a great selection of books, all very cheap. It's worth having a browse.

I know who you mean and I haven't seen him for ages. He couldn't get a license to trade and constantly had to dodge the municipality inspectors. It looks like he gave up on it, which is a pity 'cos he had some good titles in excellent condition.

The most central charity shop I know is the one close to St Pauls Pillar. They have extended the shop to house a huge book collection and paperbacks are only €1. They also sell used magazines that have been donated. So if you have any mags you've finished with please leave them there - then I can buy them (mags are so expensive here!).

All proceeds from the shop go towards completing the new hospice/

Happy travels!

At least it is for a good cause. I normally leave my books and magazines in the hotel where ever I am staying never thought of taking them to a charity shop.

And Twigs, just on the left side of the Municipal Gardens (looking from the sea) is a charity shop that will welcome books.

I agree, Twigs. It's a good way for visitors to help local charities - and it lightens the luggage load for travellers returning home! :)

Notice that some hotels sell the second hand books which is a cheek

Must admit that I buy everything on Kindle now as it is so much quicker to read and I don't get the headaches from the sun.

There is still a second hand book shop in Kato by the dive shop

visit the book exchange at the Duck pond market between Paphos and Coral Bay.

They have a vast selection at very very low prices, you can also take in your used books to sell or get an allowance for an exchange.
