English bookshops in PDLA

Hi all

As Ryanair are real meanies and no longer let me put a bag of books in the hold, is there anywhere I can get them in PDLA?

I can't bear the thought of not reading (I can do a book a day), so I'm hoping to pick some up out there.

It's either that or I pack books and buy a bikini when I get there!

Many thanks...

Yes he is! most of the time.Great place to read the papers and have a drink.Very popular with the locals, we have been going there since they opened and really feel at home there.Always head up to the bar on arrival to catch up on the local news.Trouble is many of the bars have closed due to the all inclusive hotels that have opened which means that people do not venture out. Looking forward to going there in August-our next visit, then Christmas, Easter and summer 2011.Like to plan ahead!

There is a new second hand cafe bar just opened in Los Cristianos called 'Segunda Mano' where you can buy and sell English (and other languages) books. Along with books there's lots of other second hand stuff to buy. I was in and it's a lovely place where you can have a coffee and cake by day or something stronger at night if you like! Here is their website with all the details;
