Rebecca, Savannah, USA
look for the Anglo-American

this store is particularly useful for art and architecture
books, and academic books regarding the history
and culture of Rome. Also a large selection of novels.

Long a standby for English books in Trastevere,
the Corner Bookstore has just moved from its original
location and is now larger, neater, and better
lit. The owner, Claire, and her staff are extremely
knowledgeable and helpful. Via del Moro (in Trastevere)

used novels. They also keep a bulletin board with

Perhaps the largest of Rome's

a really good English bookstore in Siena,
Italy. It's called Book

Laya, Ramat Hasharon, Israel
I'd like to recommend Libreria
Emiliana in Venice.
Sorry I do not have the address, but it is well
worth looking for it . I know it's not too far
from Plaza San Marco.
