If you are thinking about going travelling, on a short break or just want to learn more about Turkey then purchasing Turkish books is a great idea. These days you can find books on almost any subject and they can help you learn the language as well as give you an insight into the culture of the country. Most good bookshops will stock a decent range of books but for something a little more specific, or simply for greater choice, you could search online. Here you will find a number of bookshops that cater for niche areas so you should find something on the area that interests you the most. For example if you have a particular interest in history or architecture then you can find books aimed at this market. You will be surprised at just how many there are out there! Many of the big named sites such as Amazon will have these books but you can also find a number of smaller independent shops on the internet that should be able to help. To find these you will simply need to go online and enter the information into a search engine.
If you have decided that you would like to learn the language then you can find many Turkish books to help you do so. Usually they will come with a CD as well which is useful if you intend to teach yourself rather then attend a college course. You can also find books that act as a guide when you go travelling. Many people find these incredibly useful if they have never visited before. They will often tell you the best places to stay as well as things to see and do whilst you are there.
For those that live abroad but were born in Turkey but like to still read in their native language then buying books online is a great way to do this. You can either opt to find someone that sells Turkish books within the country or find a Turkish company who will ship abroad. There are some fabulous books written by Turkish authors that have not been translated into other languages so this will enable you to be able to read and enjoy these books. Just some of these books include Istanbul, Memories of a City by Orhan Pamuk, Yasar Kemal: On his Life and Art by Yasar Kemal and Memed, My Hawk by Yasar Kemal.
