Shopping for books is a commonplace in Amsterdam. The multi-cultural city holds many large book stores and libraries that hold collections from varied cultures across the world. This is largely due to Amsterdam’s liberal and free-thinking atmosphere.

One can find a large number of book stores strewn across the cobbled streets of the city, especially in the core centrums where numerous well-established publishers hold fort. Books, novels, historicals and coffee-table reads can be easily found in any one of the myriad of book stores dotted across the city.
