Books in English in Barcelona

As I will need to buy lots of books in English the next 5 years for the University I have looked for libraries which sell books in English here in Barcelona.

1. The first one I have found, in fact, I have visited it many times and bought quite a few books there is Come in. In this one you can find most of the books your teacher could recommend you, but I think that the classical novels have a poor quality.

2. The second library I want to mention is Hibernian Books, a secondhand English bookshop. Here you can find basically everything and as it is a second hand shop you can find better editions for a cheaper price. I bought yesterday a very nice edition of South of the border, west of the sun by Murakami for just 3 euros.

3. Elephant Bookshop – this one was recommended to me but I didn’t get to visit it yet. This library offers secondhand books in English for not more than 3 euros. They are moving right now, so I don’t know the new address but if you’re interested keep an eye on their website and you’ll find it out.

4. BCN Books: this library also offers books in English. There are three BCN Books Libraries in Barcelona and one of them is very close to where I live so I hope to be able to visit it soon and post about it.

You can also find some books in English in the most important libraries (Casa del Libro, Fnac, etc), but in these ones you can find mostly everything you need for a much better price.
