8. Era Nova Bookshop

"The first time I visited Era Nova was back in, I believe, 2005 when I came by the shop by accident. There is a very positive and calming energy around the place, and I am very happy to see that they have expanded! And even after the expansion the welcoming, warm spirit is still there!The variety of books is great from different areas; self-help to healing, and to different religions, and tarots... and much more! The staff is very helpful and knowledgeable about subjects.In addition to books, they have stones, cards, insence, and other little knick-knacks that you might require. And it seems that when you walk inside the door, the shop knows what you need and shows it to you ;)"
