One reviewer said that you can find any kind of book in this market but, as a foreigner and traveler, I had a difficult time with a few things.
First, I had trouble finding shops to buy my two books, which were English novels. Second, I had trouble finding a decent selection of both second hand and new English novels. New mainstream novels such as Dan Brown, Agatha Christie, as well as Classics were generally available, but still hard to find. Third, almost none of the shopowners spoke English.
College Street is an enormous marketplace filled with book shops, a spectacle in itself. However, all the book shops are small businesses, operating out of essentially large cupboards, and they sell mostly books for educational purposes.
I wouldn't suggest looking here for leisure reading. But I would still suggest a visit if you have some spare time.
