Thank you to everyone who has visited our site! We are grateful for all of the positive and helpful feedback we have received in the form of clicks, likes, follows, submissions of possible additions, and emails with comments, resources, and suggestions. The initial influx of feedback and suggestions has been just what we were hoping for and very much in the spirit of this web-project. Through this kind of collaboration, we hope to expand CairoBookStop and make it a valuable resource.
We are working hard to address all of your comments, and will use this section to keep you informed of what we’re working on and what to look for next on CairoBookStop. For each new publishing house/ bookstore that we add, we’ll start by putting it on the map and providing the basic information. For those houses and stores we interview or can provide more information about, we’ll later add a description to their individual pages. In this way we hope to keep the site as up-to-date and helpful as possible, while ensuring accuracy of information.
- Al Kotob Khan (Publishing House & Bookstore)
- Al Kotobgeya (Bookstore)
- Bikya (Bookstore)
- Additional branches of stores for some houses and stores already listed on this site
We are also looking into:
- Libraries! We’ve had several suggestions/ requests to add libraries to CairoBookStop. We think this is a good suggestion and are looking into the logistics of making this happen. If anyone has suggestions about where to track down a listing of libraries in Cairo or any resources on how the library system works, we’d be grateful for the tips. You may contact us at: cairobookstop [at] gmail [dot] com.
- A forum for readers, publishers, booksellers: This would be a forum page on our site for readers, publishers, and booksellers to interact directly and would be especially helpful, we hope, for readers to track down specific titles.

- Al Arabi Publishing and Distributing
- Al-Maadi Used Books
