Pasajes LibrerĂ­a Internacional, Booksellers and Petra's Dec 17, 2003

Pasajes is located at c/GĂ©nova, 3 (Alonso MartĂ­nez). They have books in many different languages. I know the English section is pretty good, with books for English teachers and students, fiction, non-fiction, reference, dictionaries, etc., and also a good selection of kids' books. More info. on Pasajes here: http://www.pasajeslibros.com/contacto.swf

Booksellers is at José Abascal, 48. I've been told it has a good selection of English-language books, but have never been there, so I don't know about other languages.

If you're interested in second-hand books in English and other languages, try Petra's International Bookshop, c/Campomanes, 13 (metro Santo Domingo). It's small but absolutely jam-packed with books of all types in many different languages (heavy emphasis on English, though). One of my favorite places to browse--you can often find some real bargains.

también es buena LA CASA DEL LIBRO, de Espasa Calpe, en la Gran Vía, sótano Dec 18, 2003

Hay casi todo y por lenguas. Muchos más curiosos que en Andrés Mellado y menos diccionarios.

Feria del Libro Dec 19, 2003

Hola;
Yo soy nativa italiana y traduzco de Español e Inglés. En Octubre estaba en Madrid para una feria internacional y yo también pregunté por una buena libreria en Madrid.
Naturalmente me aconsejarón la Casa del Libro (Gran Vía), pero el consejo mejor me llevó a la Feria del Libro que siempre hay cerca del Prado (hacia abajo), donde hay chiringuitos de vendedores privados y librerías oficiales. Allí encontré un diccionario viejo, que se había agotado en Italia desde el 1990. Estaba buscándolo desde hacía dos años, y he encontrado otros diccionarios viejos a precios de ganga.
Hay otra Feria del Libro cerca de la Plaza de Cibeles (creo)!
Pamela

Para Silvia Dec 19, 2003

Per parece que la Feria del Libro (los chiringuitos) nunca cierra, está fija ahí todo el año.
Me imagino que ahora en el periodo de Navidad no faltará.

Feria del Libro Dec 22, 2003

I'm sorry to disappoint you, but the Feria del Libro is held once a year (around the end of May/beginning of June) in the Retiro park. And the second hand and antique book fair is held in autumn at the Cibeles end of Paseo de Recoletos. Perhaps you're thinking of the Cuesta de Moyano, at the Atocha side of the Retiro, which is a street market for old books open all year round.
Otherwise, the store mentioned in other replies are a very good option.
