Thanks protagonist - very helpful.

I'm spending about $60 a week in Dom Knigi Noviy Arbat,but an running out of choice. The one in Tverskaya had even less choice.

Guess what we need is a book-swap club.

I have one in Moscow :-) I've started a Book Swap Club few weeks ago.
There are a few posts for book exchange here but they don’t seem to lead anywhere. I will try to create one here.

Thank you for your interest.
I'll start a new thread about book & DVD exchange, and we can all place our book lists there.

Woody, I've tried a few of the shops on Protagonist's list (many thanks Protagonist btw), and I have to rate the bookshop on Kuznetsky Most as the best - at least they have a wider selection than the normal Penguin Classics which is what most bookshops have.
