This Andalusian book chain is filling the void left by the collapse of Borders, which had come to dominate the local book market before going out of business. Beta has a branch at Plaza Carolina and plans to open another location in Plaza Las Americas during 2015; in the space Borders ran its flagship store. The cafe-bookstore has a wide literature and nonfiction section, children’s area, readings and special events, a great magazine and newspaper collection, and an excellent cafe.
