Bookshop at the Azerbaijan Diplomatic Academy

We were approached a few months ago to select and supply some English books for a new bookshop that was opening at the Azerbaijan Diplomatic Academy in Baku. 6000 books across a range of subjects from Children’s to Politics and IR were ordered packed and shipped.

This is the first bookshop in Baku that stocks books in English alongside books in Russian and Azeri.

The deputy manager of the shop, Rovshana, visited our shops in Oxford and Manchester and she has kindly sent through a number of photos. As you can see it is a stunning bookshop. So in my best Azeri ‘Ve seni coh sevirem’


  1. Biz de sizi cox sevirik (We love you too!)

    My dear Friends, thank you so much for all your support and for the wonderful comments! I am very happy to have come to UK and met you all! I’m so glad that you liked our Bookshop.
    We very much look forward to working more closely with you in the future.

    Thanks again, amazing Blackwell team!

  2. My favorite Manchester Blackwell store! Coffee and books were essential part of my student-being in Manchester, enjoyed days at your store. I am very much happy we have now ADA Bookstore, congratulations to Azerbaijan. The main thing is that “the Secret” happened: Rovshana was dreaming about running bookstore, and here you go, her dream now is a reality! Rosha, you are amazing, congratulations! Shortly I shall visit your book nest.

  3. To friends, old and new it is lovely to hear from you. You have a bookshop to be proud of and a group of English booksellers will be following your progress with great interest and affection. If you could help secure some votes for the UK in Eurovision next year we would be most obliged!
