Bivar Books is an all-English secondhand bookstore in Estefânia with a penchant for Penguin editions and a bend toward science fiction titles, which are otherwise very hard to find in English in this town. It’s run by the affable Leena Marjola, who’s actively building a community of book-lovers with readings, exhibits, and more. The shop is the only place left in town to find titles worthy of a bookworm’s bookshelf at decent prices, so you will find lots of anglophiles browsing the shelf when they’re not at the Irish pub. Read our interview with the owner to get a better sense of what’s in store.
