A gem of a used bookstore.
If you're fiending for the likes of City Lights, Powell's, Tattered Cover, or Shakespeare and Co, Halper's Books is Tel Aviv's answer. Prepare to spend whole afternoons crouched in the shop's narrow, maze-like aisles, amidst the welcome smell of books stationed in a random alleyway off of Allenby Street. Owner Yosef Halper, an American expat, has been buying out collectors and libraries for over 25 years, filling his lovingly well-worn shelves with everything from vintage sci-fi to detective thrillers and travel memoirs. Uncover a whopping 60,000 used books in English, Hebrew and Spanish with a peppering of German, Yiddish and Italian titles, and happily get lost in their printed pages.
