What I say is, a town isn’t a town without a bookstore. It may call itself a town, but unless it’s got a bookstore, it knows it’s not foolin’ a soul.

❗️I’d love to know about the bookstore/library situation where you live. In Jeddah unfortunately we have just 2 bookstores and 1 of them is so morbidly expensive I don’t remember the last time I went there. The other is where you might find a couple of new releases (Read: last years books at Current year prices) Also, public libraries? What are they?
Don’t forget to mention where you live...
