The American Book Center reviews
This book store is specialized in English Books, as you would suggest from the name. Readers of any age can find the book of their taste. We are returning for years and there is still something new...

The American Book Center is a very eye appealing bookstore with a large quantity and variety of books. Because the store is multi level it's easier to know where u have to go without giant crowds of people smothering you. Sadly the high popularity of the store can sometimes make it quite hard to get a employees full attention. If you're a student, be sure to show your student pas to get a 15% discount. Overall a very nice shopping experience, very costumer friendly. Definitely recommended
A huge bookstore with books in English. Three floors full of books! It’s like a dream come true. There is a decent Sci-Fi / Fantasy section on the 1st floor. The selection of books is really good. Interestingly enough, there is a small stand with MTG products (boosters, commander decks and a few other products). I would like to specifically mention that the staff is very polite and helpful.
