Best book store in Kathmandu

You will see Mandala Books on Kantipath Road and inevitably stumble upon Pilgrims and but United Books is underdog book store in KTM.

The owner of the shop was extremely friendly and really went out of his way to try to find a particular book that I was looking for. Like most stores, this one also buys and sells used books and offers competitive prices.

Yet, what makes this stand out is character…. any guy who posts up a smiling photo of themselves in front of their shop gets my thumbs up.
