My favorite store in Al Wahda Mall. Great selection of both English and Arabic books, and most at decent prices. I usually can buy four or five novels for 200 Dirhams. The kids section is also extensive (great as gifts for the young ones). They also have some A Level and IB books for sale, but if you urgently need one, you should call ahead to make sure they have it in stock. If they don't, they are always happy to order one for you from another branch.
The stationary section is also quite nice, but rather over priced. I would stick to the books for this store!
The ambiance of this bookstore is the best part. This is exactly how bookshops should be like (however I would appreciate some seating areas which I could use to browse the 10 books in my hand!) The collection of books is wide, I found books there that I did not find at any bookstores in Abu Dhabi. The prices are okay (I would go for Jashanmal Books any day when it comes to prices). The school supplies are amazing and I love the other stuff they have like greeting cards and other items.
Ooh Ooh I love this place, I used to get alot of novels from here. And I used to get alot of gift vouchers to go visit this place. It has an amazing collection of souvenirs, books, stationary, and greeting cards. But they could do better if they were to make it bigger and make a wider collection.
If you live in Abu Dhabi, Magrudy's is the best book store you can ever find. They have a wide range of books and stationery items and educational toys for kids. The staff are friendly and helpful and they are always willing to help you locate books for you. If the book is not on stock, they will order it for you and promptly send you an SMS once they have it on store. They don't stop at just saying they don't have your book on stop, period. They have a loyalty programme (like any other store) where you earn points on purchases and redeem it whenever you wish.
