When it comes to bookstores, São Paulo does it right. There is an array of stores with excellent selections of titles in Portuguese, English, Spanish, and French. In addition, these spaces are inviting to the wandering Brazilian and tourist alike, with comfortable chairs waiting for anyone to plop down in while reading the latest titles and magazines. Livraria da Vila is an ingenius chain with stores throughout the city. The layout of each bookstore itself is an architectural masterpiece, and the food and beverages served at the adjoining café Santo Grão will leave you with plenty of good food and drink to accompany your reading.
