We love books so much we buy them back once you have read them and give you credit at The BookSpot in return!
The Bookspot aims to make books affordable and to keep books in
circulation in Egypt. Because of this, we buy our own books back from
our customers and also buy books customers already have.
Our store has a very good selection of good quality used books. We take
pride in this. To ensure our stock lives up to the standards our
customers have come to expect, we have the following policies in regards

bestseller, size, binding etc. and generally pay between LE1 - LE8 per
