Why Bibliophiles Hate Cristiano Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo, the famous Portuguese footballer, has purchased the historic Casa del Libro bookstore building in the heart of Madrid with plans to convert it into a luxury hotel. The 95 year old bookstore is housed in a beautiful building on the Gran Via designed by architect Jose Yarnoz Larrosa.
