This place is massive and has a wonderful array of books. I must say I found it very difficult to get staff's attention. It was like as if they pretended to not see me so they wouldn't have to help me.

Si vois aimez les livres (et que vous lisez anglais), cet endroit est le paradis ! C'edt un immeuble de quatre étages d'ouvrages classés par thématiques, sans oublier un espace papeterie, un rayon consacré aux liseuses et même un rayon de livres en russe ! Il y a de quoi trouver des livres pour tous les goûts. J'ai été impressionnée par l'espace consacré aux livres de cuisine, énorme ! Côté...more
