Need audio or books in English? Then the Elephant Book Shop is the place to go! What is very nice about the store is that it is opened 7 days a week, has thousands of used and new paperback books, and you are greeted with a warm smile.

I discovered the Elephant Book Shop about 3 years ago, just a few months after it opened. The shop is located in a great part of Barcelona called Poble Sec and is a wonderful place to meet ex-pats from all over the world, as well as the locals.

The book shop is a "work in progress", constantly evolving with hundreds of used books arriving daily. They plan to provide computer services and books on CD. WOW!!

You can relax at a table, where pop, tea, homemade cookies and other goodies are sold to help you feel right at home. You can even kibitz with other patrons who have a wealth of knowledge of Barcelona to share with you especially if you plan to live here.

But most importantly you will be met, greeted and welcomed by Frank, one of the Elephant's owners. Frank is kind, courteous, helpful, and the REAL reason to visit the store.
