Fodor's Review

What began in the early '70s as an erotic magazine outlet has grown into reputedly the largest English-language book emporium on the continent. True to its name, the stock is strongly oriented toward American tastes and expectations, with its vast selection spread over seven stories. (Students, senior citizens, and teachers receive a 10% discount.)
