    Polish Bookstore & Publishing, North America
  161 Java St. - Brooklyn, NY           
"We started in 1990 as a traditional bookstore offering Polish language literature on the American market. Very soon we realized how important it is to reach people that cannot just visit Polish neighborhoods in New York and Chicago to purchase books. We quickly turned into a mail order company producing book catalogs reaching the whole country and some Polish-Canadian readers. We also kept enlarging our offer: adding videos, CD's, multimedia, audio books. In 1999 we made our first catalog named “Poland Sweet Poland” where we for the first offered Polish gourmet products. It was a huge success! And it also gave us an idea for a creation of SweetPoland.com"

    Atheneu, South America
  Rua Bambina, 74 - Botafogo - Rio de Janeiro, RJ           
Fundada em três de outubro de 1928, a Atheneu foi a primeira livraria do Brasil especializada em publicações da área de Medicina e Saúde. Nessa época, importava livros dos Estados Unidos e da Espanha para revendê-los em sua loja na rua Sete de Setembro, no centro do Rio de Janeiro. Muitos médicos vinham de várias regiões do país só para comprar seus livros.
Na década de 70, a Livraria Atheneu expande suas atividades, inaugura sua matriz na Rua Bambina, em Botafogo. Assim inicia uma nova fase de desenvolvimento, cujo marco é a instalação da sua sede editorial na cidade de São Paulo, com o objetivo de aprimorar a assessoria aos autores.
O catálogo da Atheneu, em 2003 já contava com mais de 600 livros. Atualmente, são lançadas em média, cinco publicações por mês, todas de autores nacionais.
    Book Trader Cafe, North America
  1140 Chapel Street - New Haven, CT           
The ranks of New Haven's used bookstores have thinned a little in recent years: Whitlock's on Broadway is gone, so too is the fine Elm City Books, which had a good run on York Street a few years back. But even if those stores were still around, the Book Trader would be a worthy winner of this category. And even if you couldn't buy a delicious sandwich or muffin here, it would still be a major destination for book lovers. The key is selectivity. The shelves are not weighted down by mediocrity, but rather lifted up by good stuff. Some of it is obvious: You'll get your Ian McEwan, your Kazuo Ishiguro, your Jonathan Spence. Some of it is more obscure: Sitting on shelves in recent weeks has been a first edition of John Ashbery's hard-to-find novel, which he co-authored with James Schuyler. And you can also buy a good paperback mystery or sci-fi adventure.

Afinal, como quem frequenta sabe, a Blooks Livraria é, antes de tudo, cool. Low profile. Discreta. Super atenta!

    Livraria Argumento, South America
  Rua Dias Ferreira, 417 - Leblon - Rio de Janeiro, RJ           
Incorporada à vida cultural da cidade do Rio de Janeiro, a Livraria Argumento surgiu na década de setenta, no número 199 da Rua Dias Ferreira, atualmente, número 417. Inicialmente, oferecia ao seu público, livros dos autores 'proibidos' pela repressão da ditadura militar. Autores como Miguel Arraes, Celso Furtado, Paulo Freire, Dias Gomes, Érico Veríssimo, Fernando Henrique Cardoso, Chico Buarque e Barbosa Lima Sobrinho, entre outros - que assinavam artigos no jornal semanal alternativo Opinião e na revista Argumento. Ambas as publicações tiveram a circulação suspensa por imposição da censura e encerraram suas atividades na década de 70.
Foi com o espírito de oposição ao governo que a revista mensal emprestou seu nome e conceito à livraria, que recebeu exilados e importantes pensadores da questão nacional.
No início da década de oitenta, com os primeiros ensaios de uma abertura política, o conceito se consolidou, e nos anos noventa incorporou a atual idéia de aliar a leitura e o consumo de livros ao consumo de Cd's, gastronomia, e eventos, sendo pioneira neste conceito.
Hoje, a Livraria Argumento disponibiliza aos seus leitores três endereços: Leblon, Copacabana e Barra da Tijuca
