“Very friendly and cheap ”
Reviewed June 26, 2014 via mobile

It's a second hand book store. The staff working there were very friendly and accommodating, they did their best to help find books for me and offered me a cup of tea. Don't expect to find anything to recent at the store, I bought three books and it cost me $10.

“GREAT English bookstore in Quito”
Reviewed April 9, 2014

The owner Mark is very helpful. While serving you a cup of complementary tea, he'll explain which fiction or non-fiction book might best serve your needs, and why some of his best books he'll only rent to you (he wants as many folks as possible to read them; you pay for the book AND a deposit, and when you bring it back you get your deposit back in full). He helped both my wife and I find great books for our one-month trip to Ecuador. -Art S., from www.casatambien.com
