Guest Blogger: Gisela Giunti’s Favorite Bookstores

Perfect bookstores+cafes to read and enjoy in Buenos Aires

Inside Buenos Aires

A cup of coffee and a good read, that’s it. Good reads wake me up and make me happy! That’s why there is no chance I’d skip a nice book shop plus coffee shop anywhere in the city, and that’s why deciding which are among my favourites is a tough job. And if you think about it, it’s kind of a difficult job considering the fact that Buenos Aires counts a high number of bookstores in comparison with other capital cities around the world.

These are my favorite bookstores in Buenos Aires.
