SHOPPING - Bookstores in DOHA
I SPY Book Shop
I-Spy Bookshop is the latest bookstore in town, located at the 3rd floor of City Center. Although it has opened for business less than two weeks with its grand opening still to come, I-Spy has already generated a positive response from customers who have visited the store.Passion for books and love for reading gave owner Mouna Draki the inspiration to come up with a bookstore that is different from any other store. Together with a Qatari partner, her vision of a bookshop has come to life. I-Spy Bookshop is attractively designed, with free standing open shelves of books and brightly-colored posters on the walls, which ensure an inviting environment that is bright and spacious.
Although it aims to appeal to children and young readers, I-Spy also has a wide range of books for adults. The owner also takes into consideration the advice of teachers, friends and customers in choosing what books to stock. In the future, Draki plans to place a reading corner for young readers, where they can take a book straight from the shelves and sit to enjoy it.
A "Friends of I-Spy Club" on the other hand aims to give special discounts to teachers who buy books for their schools and to regular customers as well. For sure a lot of people are already excited to see what's the buzz is all about. But with I-Spy Bookshop's promise, soon enough people won't be visiting it out of curiosity alone, but hopefully because the latest bookstore in town does answer their needs like no other bookstore can.
