Book Traffic

The first time I visited Book Traffic (it had another name back then), I scored a great book about the 1960s that I used as a reference in writing my own book. Low and behold, a recent visit and I scored another great one from the 60s, that I wished I had before.

I love browsing through their science fiction section because they have so many books to choose from, and since they're used, the price is right! They also have lots of other subjects including art and photography, philosophy and spirituality, etc. Plan on spending some time there on your first visit getting acquainted with the selection and the people who work there.

They also have books in Dutch (of course!), and they're open on Sunday. Nice place to stop if you're in the area or walking through the Jordaan.

My Score:
As my father lives in Amsterdam I usually drop by once a year. He introduced me to the owner of Book Traffic and I just fell in love with the place. I can spend hours browsing in the almost uncountable number of books dealing with so many different and interesting subjects. The wonderful location is a main reason to stop by and let oneself be taken away by the mysterious and welcoming atmosphere of the place. If you are a book lover and happen to be in Amdsterdam, don't miss the chance of enjoying a visit to Book Traffic.

My Score:
Cozy place to spend a wintry afternoon. When arriving they tell you it's "warm inside." How nice. Not only that, they leave you alone to browse. Lots of English language books.
