Happy Top Ten Tuesday! Today’s theme is bookstores and libraries I’ve always wanted to visit. I love libraries, but I don’t really go out of my way to visit any other than mine. I also don’t really keep a list of bookstores that I want to visit, but I figured it out!
Strand Book Store | New York, NY
In all of the times I’ve been to New York, I’ve never gone to the Strand. Every time I go, I say it’ll be the time that I finally visit it. One of these times, that’ll be the truth.
The Ripped Bodice | Culver City, CA
A bookstore focused solely on romance novels? Sounds like my dream. I’ve never been to California, but if I ever get there, I have to go to this bookstore.
McNally Jackson | New York, NY
Fun fact: I once had a surprise Thanksgiving visitor who worked at McNally Jackson. This is another bookstore I’ve meant to visit many times and have never actually been to.
Book Thug Nation | Brooklyn, NY
I’d never seen or heard of this bookstore before trying to come up with this list, but now I need to go there. This is a used bookstore and if that’s not my favorite thing…
Livraria Lello | Porto, Portugal
Look at it. JUST LOOK AT IT. And I took a semester of intensive Portuguese in college, so I feel like I just need to go there, like, right now.
Selexyz Dominicanen | Maastricht, Netherlands
Again, look at it. JUST LOOK AT IT. This bookstore is in an old church.
Barter Books | Alnwick, England
HOW CUTE IS THIS, I LOVE IT.
Borderlands Books | San Francisco, CA
I know that I don’t read a ton of sci-fi and fantasy, but I still think it would be so cool to visit this bookstore!!
1200 Bookshop | Guangzhou, China
I don’t know that I’m ever going to visit China, but if I do, I would love to visit this bookstore. It’s open 24 hours a day! You can even sleep there if you want!
The Last Bookstore | Los Angeles, CA
I don’t know that I 100% understand the shelving system in this place and I’m like 99.5% sure that going there would stress me out, but I still want to do it.
