Smiffs Book & Card Store: Everything - including Books

You really can buy anything you are likely to want in Nerja and there is a good street market every Tuesday morning and a flea market/car boot sale on Sunday mornings.

And - for readers and booklovers there is a very well established book shop that sells English language books and newspapers.
It used to be called W.H.Smiffs - proclaimed on a sandwich board that used to stand at the entrance to the small arcade where it is located.

What to buy: If you run out of reading material and enjoy reading books set, and about, where you are I recommend -

For more serious reading:-

South from Granada by Gerald Brenan
The Spanish Labyrinth by Gerald Brenan
Iberia by James Michener
The New Spaniards by John Hooper ( 2nd Revised 2006 version)

Lighter reading about living in Spain now -

Driving over Lemons by Chris Stewart - and its two sequels -
A Parrrot in a Pepper Tree
The Almond Blosson Appreciation Society

Novels -
Winter in Madrid by C.J.Sansom
The Shadow Of The Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon (Lucia Graves Translator)

What to pay: I usually find that buying English language books in Europe works out more expensive than buying before you go. But if you are desparate ....

Address: La Galeria, C/Almirante Ferrándiz 10, 29780 Nerja

Directions: The shop is in a small arcade - hairdresser at the entrance - in the street where the Post office is and very close to it. There is a sketch map on the website
