Tucked away off of Hamra's Jeanne d'Arc Street sits a room full of books maybe the size of a generous walk-in closet.Though it could hold a handful of people at most, the shop has drawn many who crave a calm space to pause and a more personal book-shopping experience.Rahhal opened the doors of the Little Bookshop in May 2014 . Long a literature devotee, he had dreamed of opening his own bookshop for the past 15 years. Although physical books have fought to stay alive amid the rising popularity of e-books, there is an irreplaceable feeling in opening a well-bound book and paging through text on well-printed paper – something that technology can't touch.There is no website or Facebook page for The Little Bookshop, yet Rahhal prefers that recommendations have spread by word of mouth, mainly through students and professors of the neighborhood's universities, the Lebanese American University (LAU) and AUB.The Little Bookshop is a one-man operation. Rahhal doesn't hold regular opening hours, but in general the shop is open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., Monday through Saturday.
