It is worth noting that there are also small book selections available in all of the other shops in Montserrat. In general the books on sale here are the ones directly linked to Montserrat - guide books and coffee table photo books. However, perhaps this is all you need if you are looking for a souvenir. They will also be particularity useful if you do not speak Spanish - the Montserrat guide books are the ones most likely to be sold in a variety of languages.
Montserrat offers a wide selection of books. Unfortunately, if you don't speak Catalan or Castellano, the more obscure options will not be available to you. But take a wander around the Portes Endins bookshop and see if there is anything that takes your fancy.
