I prefer book - Levne knihy

I prefer book, Levne knihy, Prague
NO! I PREFER BOOK! - Levne knihy's ad facing one of their book stores at Wenceslas square. And this is a BIG ad. Levne knihy, translated to English Cheap books, is a book shop chain with, you guessed it, cheap books. They have their own line of classic literature and you can find some really good encyclopedia type of books here - often for a fragment of their original price. They have also a lot of old music CDs with classic, jazz, rock'n'roll and also some of the popstars of 80s and 90s whom most of the people wouldn't know today. They are usually from 50 to 150 Kc (that's roughly 2 to 5,50 Euro).
I'm saving the best for the last. They also have their own DVD line of classic films including such as from Francois Truffaut, Roman Polanski, Wim Wenders, Akira Kurosawa, Jean-Luc Godard, Pedro Almodóvar, Ingmar Bergman, Federico Fellini and films with Pierre Richard and Louis de Funès. Well, there are more. All of them for 99 Kc (about 3,70 Euro). These are the best Christmas gifts :)

By the way, what do you read now?
I'll start with mine's: Sue Townsend's The growing pains of Adrian Mole and Charles Bukowski's Hot Water Music.
