The World's Most Beautiful Bookstores?

You be the judge!! I discovered a post on Flavorwire regarding their take on the "The 20 Most Beautiful Bookstores in the World" and from the pictures posted to their website, I couldn't agree more.  W-O-W, the bookstores featured look FABULOUS!! 

Being the bookstore lover and avid reader that I am,  I would now love to visit each and every one of the bookstores mentioned... And since I've already visited Bart's Books in Ojai, California, I'd only have 19 more bookstores left on the list to visit.

Hmmm, I wonder if my hubby would go for a vacation revolving around visiting bookstores?? I guess it wouldn't hurt to ask, right? ;-)

Have you visited any of the bookstores featured in Flavorwire article and if so, which ones? Was the bookstore really all that beautiful and worth visiting in your opinion? Which of the bookstores mentioned would you most want to visit?  

I think I'd most want to visit the Cafebreria El Pendulo bookstore in Mexico City, Mexico or the Livraria Lello bookstore in Porto Portugal the most. 

As I mentioned earlier in the post, I've already visited Bart's Books in Ojai, California and it is definitely worth the visit. In fact, the entire town of Ojai is a nice destination come to think of it. 

Last month, I made a post featuring Bart's Books, so check it out if you haven't done so already!


  1. Oh! I love them all... and with the one in Paris, if you're willing to shelf a few books, you're allowed to stay there for nothing for a few days; well, that's what I've heard.

    If you have a gander on my blog, look on the labels for: Bookstores and you'll find I have reviewed a few bookstores around the ridges here in Brisbane. Some of them are my usual haunts, some aren't and are very new to me... so take a look, you never know you may slot some of the Brisbane City bookstores I've recommended on my list onto your must-see list when you visit my home town. :)

  2. Whoa, stay at a bookstore for FREE, just for shelving books? Now that might be worth looking into, especially if you're economically minded and love bookstores!

    I'll check out more of your bookstore reviews, Mozette!
