Book Exchange in Mauritius?

Beitragvon Scope254 » Mo Mär 24, 2008 9:37

Does anyone know of a book exchange or secondhand bookshop anywhere on the island? I'm not in a hotel or apartment block where they usually have a library and I'm rapidly running out of reading material and still three weeks holiday left!
Or is there anybody here that has any English books I can borrow? The usual holiday fiction is what I'm looking for.

Any ideas?

Hello Scope,

There's are not many English language titles that I can offer for 'leasing' as I usually hand them over to the library of Mahebourg's Loreto College when I've finished them. However at this stage there are four Alexander McCall Smith titles in our house: The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency, Tears of the Giraffe, Morality for Beautiful Girls and The Kalahari Typing School for Men - wonderful small books, detective stories from Botswana -but not the usual crime fiction. They are funny and contain a lot of wisdom at the same time.

Furthermore some Donna Leon (Detective stories in Venice) and Evelyn Waugh titles. Otherwise I've got some biographies on the shelf: Nelson Mandela, Michael Hutchence, Katherine Hepburn, Jackie Kennedy Onassis etc.

Thanks so much for replying quickly. The books you have sound great!
We are staying just outside Port Louis but I'll send you a private message with my phone number so we can arrange to meet.
