A small bookstore specializing in Indonesian history. Some new, but mostly used books. Some current fiction, postcards, maps, and a few souvenirs. Worth a stop for book lovers, particularly those looking for books on Indonesia. Most books are in English.

Dear Spaqueen _9. Thank you for taking the time to review our little bookshop. In the last year we have specialised in books on Indonesian studies and this has become our main focus. We hope to see you again one day. Kind regards, Anita

Ganesha Bookstore (Sanur branch) has a smallish secondhand collection with average prices of around 70k for paperbacks as well as a new section on local stuff. It even has some free books by the door outside to entice you in.

Hello, I don't have a shop in Seminyak. I have a small amount of books inside Biku Restaurant in Kerobokan. My main stores are in Ubud on Jalan Raya and Sanur on Jalan Danau Tamblingan 42. Hope to see you there. Anita
