Used books store in Kuwait

It seems to have been around for quite a while and bloggers stumble upon it and make a buzz from time to time. But it is incredible: A Second Hand - Used Books Store in Kuwait!
And they buy your books or sell you some others and will rebuy them again from you within a period of time.
In a country where books are rare and so scrutinized, book shops are to be counted on one hand. Censorship doesn't help and it becomes a vicious circle where readers are less interested.
With online shopping, books have been flown in with lesser restrictions. The "Kindle" or other screens versions might be the solution for book deprived countries. But that doesn't give the real flavor of discovering ailes of shelves, fiddling along some titles, reading randomly, putting a book back and taking another...
Book lovers rejoice, you might find something to quench your thirst...
