This morning I visited an amazing bookshop in Istanbul's Sultanahmet district. Simply called "Book Shop", this family concern sells guidebooks, cookbooks, art books, maps, novels, in fact anything about Turkey and a wide range of novels by Turkish authors. They offer a great selection of books, the staff are really helpful and encourage you to browse through the books. It has been described as the best bookstore on Turkey in a number of guides. I certainly enjoyed myself and got some great ideas browsing through the books.
