6. Libreria Anglesa Come In

"A very big book store! They have all kinds and genres of books from fiction to non-fiction. We were looking for english books for my son. There were a lot of options compared to the other bookstores in Barcelona. We had a hard time deciding which one to buy because of all the options and because we went there one hour before they close. In the end, we bought 3 books. We recommend you going there earlier as you’ll need lots of time looking for books if you don’t have anything special in mind. Once you open a book you can’t resist looking for the others that they have 😂🤣. My son didn’t want to leave the bookstore! We will come back"
