JARIR BOOKSTORE:

It's next to Ramada Intersection, opposit of StarBucks Cafe.

There is a big variety of books from all around the world in many languages.

Virgin Store in Villagio:

Very nice range of books as well.

I get my books from those two places.

:D

in addition to Virgin and Jarir, there are two other good bookshops (both in the new-mirqab road - between salwa road and al-sadd):

- Family Bookshop

- Abu Karbal Bookstore

There Are no good bookstores here if you are used to European and American Bookstores. The best is though Virgin Megastore in Villagio.

I buy myself most of my books from www.amazon.com and get them shipped to Qatar with Aramex Shop and Ship service (www.aramex.com)

I was simply fooled by the responses to this post and I wasted my time visiting the Virgin bookstall, villagio and the Abu Karbal bookstall. There is absolutely no selection, and books are not really a priority commodity for even Jarir and Virgin. Why cant any corporate see an opportunity here?

You can check http://www.qatarusedbooks.wordpress.com. They advertise your used books on the website, or you can simply donate it. They just opened a facebook page http://www.facebook.com/UsedBookStoreQatar in which there going to be a community of people interested in book swapping, opening a book club etc.
