So, the trip to the city wasn’t supposed to involve a book haul – especially when I was hardly looking for an extensive English section in Madrid – but as it sometimes (alright, always) happens with me, I find a way. Turns out that the basement of the Casa del Libro in Gran Via has a huge languages section and a wide range in English. For only about two walls worth it’s really very good!! I limited myself to four. These are the spoils.
