Bookstores.

I don't know if most countrys have bookstores like America.
But I do know that Jordan doesn't.

If you're looking for pens, pencils, or little kids (really-little kids) books, plunge on through. Also, have no fear if you are seeking a dictionary or something in Arabic. But I'm not sure what the wall of Arabic books are. Probably Qu'ran's and dictionarys.

However! If you want a novel, you are out of luck, my friend. Try the university bookstore in Amman- if you can find it. They have stuff like that.

But if someone directs you to a little bookstore on the street, you are being shepherded towards something quite different from what you are looking for.
Be forewarned.
