News and Links – I absolutely love Barnes and Noble but I have to admit, BN has got nada on El Ateneo in Buenos Aires. This theatre-turned-bookstore is impressive with high ceilings, elegant drapes, and rows of DVDs and CDs, but what’s awesome about El Ateneo is that although it is no longer a theatre, the look and feel remains (there is a theatre box and a “stage” where a café is now located). Oh, and they sell great books too. –Shammara S. H.

The Guardian – All the world’s a page at El Ateneo, a bookshop converted from an old theatre in downtown Buenos Aires. As you can see from this photomontage the El Ateneo has retained its former splendour, with high painted ceiling, original balconies and ornate carvings intact. Even the crimson stage curtains remain part of the show. Comfy chairs are scattered throughout, the stage is utilised as a reading area and café, and even better, the former theatre boxes are used as tiny reading rooms. – Sean Dodson chooses the 10 bookshops from around the world which he considers to be the fairest of them all
