Set off Allenby street some distance, Halper's Books' only beacon is a glass display case of English books. Given the scarcity of quality used English bookstores in Tel Aviv, the feeling of discovering a hidden treasure when entering the shop is appropriate. Considering oceans separate it from the nearest English speaking country, Halper's has managed to assemble a respectable collection. All the familiar sections are on the premises (literature, travel, etc.), including, appropriately enough, a rich supply of books concerning Middle East and Jewish matters, with most well-known authors and titles represented. The books are arranged in a small, labyrinthine space that, like any good used bookstore, is a pleasure to explore. The store also buys books.
