This place was cool, decorated nicely and housed more books thank you would think could fit. Besides the worker, my wife and I were inside with 1 other person...we could barely move around. It felt cramped and uncomfortable, but I can see why book-lovers enjoy the place. Kind of cool to see the rare/expensive literature they have on display.

Its a pretty, quaint, small bookstore in Oia - with books in several languages, and even first editions. Has a cat, and a dog So, if you are like me, you'll make it a purpose to track this little shop down. The owners are friendly, and the store in itself just calls out to you. Did i add, that it...

Whether you're looking for a bookish souvenir of the island or an old collectors' edition, you can be sure you'll find something. Don't miss their map of the island. And finally, you can feel the collective effort that was... More

This is by far the coolest book shop ever! It's tiny, quaint, artsy & stocked with an awesome variety of books! There's something for everyone. Make sure you pat the cat on the way on the door & read some of the interesting things written on the walls too.

you dive in another era, bookshop that reminds you of Dickens's novels, rare editions but worth the visit even for those who do not read. It is something one must visit.

I am a huge book lover and was delighted to find such an awesome bookshop while on my holiday! The shop was amazing and filled with interesting books. I decided that I wanted to buy a book while I was here and was looking for a book written by a Greek author (but written in English!). I was directed to... More

experienced travelers that have graduated beyond trinkets ,cheap souvenirs etc....but you would like a memento of a visit. A book or music CD of a local place is the perfect gift for others or for yourself. You MUST stop in for a bit here and enjoy...whether you want a first edition Zorba the Greek or something around 20 euro....it's all... More

...or City Lights in San Francisco, you'll love Atlantis Books. Same general aesthetic, and a true anachronism in Mediterranean Oia. Friendly staff, mostly expats, and lots to look at and browse through. Give yourself at least half an hour if you're a book lover. It's also a cool and shady break from the sun on the main promenade.
