Book Stores

From the time we were children, our parents and or, guardians have been reiterating the importance of reading. I don't think that we in Barbados can ever count the amount of times we were told to 'Go sit and read a book'. Evidently, they were/are the wiser ones as there can be no doubt whatsoever that reading is indeed a highly beneficial aspect of our lives. Reading is extremely therapeutic and highly stimulating.

 

One of the many talents across Barbados is the occupation of authorship. The island has a plethora of authors who are now beginning to publish their work for the public to enjoy. As a result, readers are now more informed of Barbados, its people, culture, history and the many aspects of what make Barbados. Where the island came from, where it's at and where it's going.

 

The shelves of bookstores across Barbados are sure to carry a wide range of books that readily depict the true talent, imagination and experiences of our Barbadian authors and those abroad.

 

Book stores across Barbados also carry a wide range of educational books including books for the primary, secondary and tertiary level, novels, books on health, books on business and computing, books for children, books on art, books for your reading pleasure, books on Caribbean history and magazines to name a few.

 

Some popular bookstores across Barbados are Pages Bookstore with locations at Barbados' capital city, Bridgetown, Holetown, Worthing and Supercentre's branches of JB's, Big B and Warrens.

 

There's also Cloister bookstore which is located in Bridgetown, Sheraton Mall and Speightstown.

 

Another popular choice of bookstores for Barbadians is Days Books which is located at Independence Square in Bridgetown.
