Amsterdam is a good place for book lovers. There are many general book stores, plus a number of shops with various specialisations: art, philosophy, LGBT, children’s books, academia, design… Many book stores carry English-language titles as well as Dutch ones, and there are a few English-language-only shops, such as The English Bookshop and the American Book Center – both of which also host workshops, readings, book signings and performances – and Waterstones.
