Senanayake Book Shop

No 366 Galle Road Wellawatte

Bargain/ second hand bookshop

Vijitha Yapa Bookshop (Nugegoda)

99, S De S Jayasinghe Mawatha, Nugegoda

Vijitha Yapa (Crescat)

G 6A Crescat Boulevard, Colombo 3

Vijitha Yapa Crescat has a great selection of comics and other interesting books, but it's also quite expensive. Good for gifts.

Chapters

40/1, Joseph Lane, Colombo 04

Chapters has a decent range of books, mostly fantasy and illustration, but what we really love about this bookshop is it's so much more than a store.

Promate World Stationer - Colombo Racecourse

Colombo Racecourse, Reid Avenue, Colombo 7

ProMate is a stationery shop, they’ve got a few pricey looking pens here and a huge collection of notebooks. Their whole brand practically revolves around notebooks; notepads, spiral pads,…

A bookstore with a surprisingly wide array of choices at Liberty Plaza's ground floor.

M.D.Gunasena takes a novel approach at the conventional bookshop, with gorgeous interior decor, and a chill atmosphere which is perfect for passing the time, and of course reading.
