Paperback Exchange

Paperback Exchange

Tons of English-language titles—both new and used, fiction and nonfiction—are offered at this book exchange in Florence. It’s an especially great place to pick up cookbooks, with traditional recipes you can follow at home in your own language. The shop also buys back used books for a fraction of the original price or store credit—which can be a boon if you’re staying in town for a few weeks and tend to go through reading material quickly.
