To establish: an embassy for the soul of the English-speaking world - its literature - in Mexico; an educational resource for Chilangos learning English and eager to explore the artistic reach of the language; a web-free, Kindle-less island of analog time in the digital sea; a community center for Commonwealth and American expatriates in the most exciting, vibrant and accessible city on Earth; an institution that will pay tribute to that city's magnificence with the best our native culture has to offer.

BUEN FIN SALE November 15 thru 17
Been here long enough now to see the Buen Fin coming and want in on the action.
Starting this Friday at 11 AM opening and continuing through Sunday 5 PM close, ALL our stock with the old Cerrada Chiapas location on the pricetag is offered at an unbeatable 50% off.
This includes most of our rare or antiquarian books and first editions and big sets like the 1906 Harvard Classics Poetry, The History of Civilization by Will and Ariel Durant, the gorgeous six-volume complete Bernard Shaw, and a lot of perfectly serviceable inventory that has come back into our hands from customers (on occasion more than once) but no worse for wear. You know we don´t stock beach books, or moldy stuff thats been dropped in the tub.
Plus if you haven´t been in this month, you won´t have seen our mammoth wall of paperback fiction, memoir and biography. We have more titles in stock than ever before, and rarely turn people away who are looking for a particular title.
There is hardly a better Christmas gift than a book you have loved, especially in first edition. Get down here before they are gone.
