Looking For A Good Read?

You can finally find one in Cabo, at the new Bookworm book store

If you’re a book lover who’s living or staying in Cabo for an extended period of time, you’ve likely lamented the fact that there are no good bookstores here in Cabo. Or, really, bookstores period. Sure, you can download all the books you want on your tablet or Kindle, but some of us are old-school and want the feel of an actual book in our hands.

Bookworm is rather tiny, but cozy, with a couple of easy chairs, and a coffee table. The owner also owns the coffee shop next door, so it’s OK, to bring your cup over and browse.

The Bookworm offers a wide range of books in both English and Spanish. It has a large and diverse selection, including fiction, nonfiction, culture and art, philosophy, sports books, and there’s even a children’s section. I loved seeing the gorgeous books lined up along the shelves, and spent a few hours there browsing the shelves. I found so many interesting books that I had to write down all the titles of the ones I wanted to read!

This is something that we really needed in Cabo San Lucas. It’s an ideal place to visit for the book buyer who never knows what they want until they arrive at the store. (Although, if you’re like me, you’ll have the urge to buy every book in the store!)

And they have a very friendly staff who is always helpful and can find books in whatever new interest I might have. And if for any reason they don’t have what I’m looking for, they will do whatever it takes to get it down here for me. For us book lovers, could it get any better?
