As of June 1, 2015, Bookish is no longer in business. It was an oasis of good cheer, and a source of wonderful books. I will always remember it fondly.
Bookish is an English-only book store in Ankara, Turkey. One of my high school friends built the store to serve both expats in Ankara and Turks looking for a great selection of English language books. She stocks both fiction and non-fiction books including recent best sellers, books on Turkish history, art and cuisine, travel guides, Turkish language tutorials, dictionaries and many others.
Cara and I had a chance to visit the store this August, just before the formal grand opening. It provides a wonderful atmosphere where you can browse to your heart's content. Both the owner, my friend Hülya, and her assistants are knowledgable and will do their best to get you any specific items you are after.
So, if you happen to be in Ankara, stop by, and say "hi" from me.
