All used bookstores smell the same
Whenever in Taksim, I try stop by Beyoglu Sahaflar Carsisi. It’s a 2 level place of bookstores piled high with pre-read books, magazines, and even a few movie posters. Today I bypassed pages like a Turkish printing of Donald Trump: Art of the Deal, and Frommer’s Europe for Five Dollars a Day (when was THAT printed?). I opted for a nice copy of Mevlana’s Mesnevi along with a Capadoccia travel guide for our roadtrip this weekend.
