My fellow book lovers, do we agree that there are few greater pleasures in this life than finding a charming and well-stocked bookstore? If you are in Madrid, you are in luck; the delightful Desperate Literature International Bookshop caters for the most avid bookworms! You can lose yourself in their well-stocked shelves; I challenge you to leave empty-handed! Because a spending splurge on books is the only splurge that is guilt-free in my opinion – am I right?
There is a great selection of pre-loved books in a variety of languages, so you can also find some amazing bargains. You can buy something unique too; the shortlisted stories of Desperate Literature’s International annual short story competition. This year’s (Eleven Stories 2023) is out now.
