PRESS AND BOOKSTORES
This category refers to those who seek to find reading materials in their own language and perhaps even trade books or go to a reading.
Other than the two mega-bookstore chains that cater to both Greek and International book enthusiasts, there are a couple of “finds” for those who prefer to support the smaller stores.
As far as finding foreign press – they can usually be found at most kiosks in the high tourist areas of the city of Athens.
