As a teenager I used to love going to my local bookshop, grabbing a coffee and getting lost in the aisles. When it was time to go, I would always have a stack of books to narrow down to make one or two purchases. I loved everything about those visits: the quiet, the friendly staff, the plethora of books to rummage through... In that vein, I'd like to share a few lists praising bookstores that I would love to one day visit:
- Flavorwire has compiled a list of The 20 Most Beautiful Bookstores in the World. Their styles range from antique to modern but they're all there to celebrate books.
- Mentalfloss lists 10 Excellent Bookstore Cats. All the stores seem like great places to curl up with a feline and a book.
- CBC Books polled readers for Your Top 10 Favourite Canadian Bookstores. This list makes me want to get in my car and road trip across Canada.
