Massolit Books Tips (5)

Massolit Books: Absolute bliss for booklovers

Small rooms, tall shelves, armchairs, side-tables..............a counter serving cake and wine and coffee.......and a wealth of English language books covering every topic under the sun, both fiction ad non-fiction.

Some of the stock is remaindered, some secondhand. All is very reasonably-priced indeed.

I loved this place. I could have spent hours just browsing....and I'm certain an awful lot of people do just that.

If it's a rainy day, or if you've run out of things to read, or if you just love books............then a visit to Massolit is absolutely essential.

If you go into rooms other than the main one (it is really just a house) you'll need to leave your bag with the person behind the counter.

Massolit Books: Treasure chamber!

Heart-warming space with loads of second-hand literature in english on every topic. Good prices. Great cosy café. Like an intellectual tourist office where you can meet people and get to know what is going on in the city. Here, I have found books I have been searching for everywhere else. On the homepage you can browse the different subjects to check for special titles.

When you arrive, the space seems very small for its reputation, but this is only the beginning. Lika every good book the store continues behind the (blue?) door. There are room after room, some with sofas and armchairs for closer studies.

What to buy Books, books, books!

What to pay About a third of the original prize, or sometimes even less.

Massolit: English-language used bookstore

Massolit is an English-language used bookstore and it is absolutely fabulous. You can drink coffee or tea there when reading a book. They also sell new books that have been discounted. Interior desing is greeeeeat and guys working there are very friendly.
Be prepared to leave your bags and stuff when entering back room.
It is close to the main square, so it's accessible by foot (about 10 to 15 minutes).

open from 10:00 AM to 8:00 PM daily, and from 10:00 AM to 9:00 PM on Friday and Saturday

What to pay Expect to spend a lot of zloty there if you like books :)

Massolit books: Great bookstore

Massolit books looks like small pokey shop from the outside. BUT there are several rooms inside, stacked full of mostly English-language books.

There is a small cafe, and every room has chairs or sofas so you can comfortably peruse the books. They even pipe in US radio... I found a lot of books on a variety of subjects - many books of course on Poland and WWII, there seems to be an emphasis on history and politics.

Selection off used books too. Prices ranged from 5 Zl (bargin dump) to 30 zl for new books (cheaper than list price !) up to 70zl or more for rarer books. They also have a websiet (see below) with an online catalogue.
