About The Guide

Hello! We are Sonja and Ivan. And this is our Bookstore Guide - an amateur guide to book shopping throughout Europe. We hope this Guide will help you find the book(stores) you are looking for.

Top 5s

Within the past few months, the number of bookstores listed in our database has been growing considerably and we hope that this process is not about to be slowed down soon. Since we already have a rather wide selection at our hands, we have decided to introduce a new feature to our Guide. From now on, we will be releasing our personal Top 5s of European bookstores included in our Guide in several categories. The categories themselves just as the ranking of bookstores are a result of our subjective decisions, so feel free to comment, disagree, argue in favor of different bookstores etc. Should you also happen to have a suggestion for a category, don't hesitate to drop us a line and share your idea. The Top 5s will be (ir)regularly updated depending on our free time and imagination.
