We got a great tip from Emily at BLoose clothing to hit Atlantis, and it made Santorini that much better to have such great recommendations from two lovely locals. Craig, the owner talked to us about all his books and I dont think I've ever heard such a well knowledged bibliophile who is also so young. Craig and his co-owner... More

This bookstore is ran by a proper librarian, one of this almost extinct profession of giving personalized and knowlegeable book advice. The bookstore has many new and used books, in many languages and also highlights greek literature. An oasis of peace from the flocks of cruisers.

Loved the ambience of the store, the little scribblings on the wall as well as the people who were extremely helpful. I specifically liked the short stories that they publish in small, cutely packaged booklets. Picked up a few for my collection!

Wandered into this place after reading about it in Lonely Planet. It's any book lover's dream! Stepping into the store is like stepping into another world altogether. The staff are passionate about literature and delighted to engage in a conversation about books or make suggestions about one's next purchase. The store has a few beds tucked away behind shelves and... More

Established in 2004, Craig and Oliver have done some wonderful things with this little hole in the wall. So many great finds in a handful of languages, this shop has it all.

From the moment I saw the place, I was in love. In love with the quotes on the outside wall, the crammed shelves, poetry right inside the door, and books even stacked on the floor. Lovely change of pace in this crowded tourist area filled with souvenir shops, jewelry stores, and boutiques. They have a rooftop terrace that visitors are... More

Bookshops, as anybody who has read Marx on their kindle knows, are nekulturny and should be replaced by something of cultural importance like Starbucks. Wanting to crush the little upstart which tried to befoul my holiday with its eccentric charms I strode in and besmirched my eyes upon their shelves. Clearly run by idiots, as I noticed they were out... More

Probably the most adorable book shop I've ever been in. Immediately upon arrival I enjoyed the scent of Palo Santo burning and I was in heaven! I was intrigued by reading the history of the shop on a timeline painted on the ceiling. I also loved the trap door to the roof terrace. The shop had a sweet pooch enjoying... More

It's a magical place full of a fantastic collection of books, very nice people with an amazing story to tell and a jawdropping view of the sea. I absolutely loved their postcard rack!
