“Get yourself to this bookstore before you leave Egypt! There is also a location in New Cairo. This one is in downtown, easy to get to if you're staying in central Cairo. The Egypt section is full of beautiful travel books, tourism guides, etc. Many interesting books you will want to take home. Also, the bookstore is full of novels and books by various authors in the middle east. It's so worth perusing and finding special books you wouldn't find back home. Every first Saturday of the month, books are all 20% off. So that's a good day to take advantage and binge buy!”
