Can anyone recommend a bookstore in Santiago where I will be able to pick up a book in Galego? Specifically, Bernard Atxaga's Obabakoak, but I'd like to browse as well. Thanks.

Start with my favorite, "Librería San Pablo", Rúa do Vilar, 37, they have a grand selection of books many concerning the Camino and if they don't have what you are looking for they will certainly assist your search. I purchased there "Selected Poems" Rosalía de Castro an edition with Galician/Spanish facing the English translation and a book on one of my favorite places in SdC "The Mercado de Abastos" with a text in both Galego Spanish and English.

Why not try Follas Novas? Rua de Montero Ríos, 37.

The department store El Corte Inglés in Santiago (and other Spanish cities) also has an extensive bookshop. And I would try Follas Novas as well!

Thank you. The postage costs more than the book, but it's good to have an option if I can't find a local copy.
The original language of Obabakoak is Euskera but I understood from your post that you want it in Galego. It is an unusual request.

Sorry, I misspoke--wrong author/part of the Camino! But I do want to pick it up in Spain, in the original.
