Greetings from the bookshop! thanks for taking the time to give us a review, and we're pleased you like our shop.
we try to do things that are not always mainstream, and books that have a relevance to Crete and Greece. We also offer a wide variety of fiction of all genres as well as our guides and non-fiction.
It's always nice to know we are hitting the right mix, and being able to provide local arts and crafts is something we are keen to continue - it's our way of trying to support the local crafts and give something back to those who have beenso helpful, while ofering something a little different forour visitors.

Once again, thanks for the review, and we hope you enjoy the rest of your summer. Come back to beautiful Elounda and we'll be happy to give you a cuppa and a biccie!
Regards,
Eklektos
