This Spain-wide chain of second-hand bookshops has a store on Calle Victoria, just off Plaza de la Merced.
Unlike a typical second-hand bookshop, the books in Re-Read are neatly organised and displayed beautifully according to genre and author, so that upon first entering the store you may think you’ve found yourself in another of Spain’s big commercial bookshop chains.
What sets Re-Read apart, though, is its affordability.
As founder Nicolás says, “The concept behind Re-Read is very simple: to offer books [that are] almost new at almost impossible prices.”
And the prices are indeed hard to believe, given the near-perfect condition of the books; 3€ for one book, 5€ for two and 10€ for five.
The idea behind Re-Read is to give life to old books gathering dust in homes all over Spain. You can sell your holiday reads here at 20 cents a piece, so that they can find their way into new hands and free up some precious kilos in your suitcase.
And as Re-Read sources their books mainly from the shelves of locals in the area, you might just pick up some unique literary gifts for the book or travel lover in your life.
