Ler Devagar Bookstore

read slowly

Reading is still a state of mind, and this place reflects that state perfectly – it seems like imagination truly came through here. This space has a history of change and has always had a hard life: from its origin in Bairro Alto, it moved from place to place, until it was finally accepted in one of the city’s coolest places, LX Factory.

A former printing space gave life to a bookstore where the goal is to give those who like to read, everything they could ever ask for. But this space is not just a bookstore, here you can attend concerts, exhibitions and events. “Ler Devagar” (“Read Slowly”) was named one of the 10 most beautiful bookstores in the world, it was published in the NY Times and in numerous prestigious publications, all over the world.
This is a large space, united by a grand staircase and filled with antique printing machines, it has 2 bars, sculptures such as the famous flying bicycle, and thousands of books distributed all over its walls and nooks. Here you can have a coffee, read a book, be with friends, taste the flavor of the words, and perhaps even be inspired by the atmosphere and become one of the many hundreds of members who contribute to this space.
