Re-Read is a low-cost bookshop. It is a family business run by two sisters that was originated from their passion for books.

After reading a book most of us leave it aside on the bookshelf for ages. But why not to give the second life to the book? You may sell your books to Re-Read for a symbolic price and they will find new owners. Besides, you can find something interesting for yourself at the price 5 times less than in the ordinary bookshop.

The bookshop on Gran Via de Catalans opened just a few months ago, it is full of light, and without hurry, we can find something special. There is no streamlined catalogue as people bring something new every day. So you can find a hidden treasure on the shelves yourself or ask its very kind owner who is always around to help you.
