Spending some time in the Livraria Cultura Paulista is a very "paulistano" thing to do. If you can avoid the busiest hours: saturday and sunday afternoon, you will have a great going from book to book. Do not forget to stop by at the Cafe. Amazing!

Really nice bookstore (specially the one located at Conjunto Nacional).
Wi-fi zone, close to the subway. Also, close to Av Paulista, another interesting point in SP.
Kids can play and read books. It is a fun place.

In the heart of Sao Paulo, in Avenida Paulista you can find this mix of Borders, FAO Schwartz and Tower Records with slight bohemian, artsy air. Strongly recommendable.

This is by far the best bookstore in São Paulo, located few minutes' walk from the subway station and bus stop. You can find all kinds of books you can imagine and the staff are very friendly. Although the bookstore is almost always very crowded, thanks to the specious and well-designed interior, you can feel relaxed and have a very good time reading and looking for all the books you want. They also have café, where you can enjoy reading books, some mini-bookstores, and CD and DVD section.
