The Livraria da Vila chain of bookstores has become a favorite among the paulistana culture scene for the incredibly beautiful architecture of its stores, all signed by architect-maestro Isay Weinfeld. The stores also host various book signings and cultural events. Moreover, you find a knowledgeable staff that takes pleasure in reading and recommending books. You know one those places where you ask for a book with a red cover and a story about a girl who lost her puppy and all of a sudden they bring you the book, the cover is actually brown, but the story is the one you were looking for. The one in Alameda Lorena is the most central. The one at Shopping Cidade Jardim is majestic and the one at Shopping JK Iguatemi is almost secretive, hidden behind a wall of books. It is a very pleasing place to spend a few hours browsing and having a coffee.
