Pandora: "Pandora's books" Istanbul Shopping Tip by ozalp

Istanbul Shopping: 315 reviews and 548 photos

This is my favorite bookstore in Taksim. It was the first bookstore which had a computer for stock searching for customers. It is very small and every inch of it full with books. When you enter you can see newly published books on your right. Near this shelf there is a small stair leading to the mezzanine floor. There you can find books about philosophy. The books near the cashier are about Turkey and Istanbul, in English. After the city guides you can find many books of literarture in English, like many books of Orhan Pamuk, Umberto Eco, Jorge Luis Borges...

Also there is a small shelf near the stairs with many brochures, free magazines, fanzines. You can find the monthly schedule of Babylon, events of Istanbul's cultural life, tickets to fairs...

You can search and buy books online in their web site, too.

What to buy: Books, magazines, free brochures
