But reports by Babalu claim that this is all a big lie -- pure misinformation and propoganda from the island. Babalu, which boasts on spreading the truth about Cuba, referred to the story as "fake news."
A reporter for the site wrote:
"So, an American 'journalist' named Conner Gorry, who has been living in Castrogonia for eleven years, teams up with five Cubans to open a 'bookstore' and 'literary salon' ineptly named 'Cuba Libro' that sells used books in English. Total inventory: 310 books. Yeah, that's it. A typical yard sale here in Connecticut normally has double or triple that number of titles on display.
The 'journalist' who put this story on the AP news feed is no more a 'journalist' than the 'journalist' who has opened up the so-called 'store.'"
Babalu believes the bookstore news is just a way to get people to think there are reforms taking place in Cuba and that Cubans are actually free to read what they want, when in reality, they are not.
What do you think? Do you believe this is an actual bookstore or just a form of propoganda?
