Top Ten Tuesday || Bookstores I’d Love to Visit

Welcome to my first Top Ten Tuesday! TTT is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, and features a different top 10 theme each week. This week’s topic is Favorite Bookstores OR Bookstores I’d Love to Visit. My first reaction to this prompt is… I want to visit every bookstore. There aren’t a lot of interesting bookstores in my area, probably because a lot of people have switched over to electronic reading for the most part (I’m one of them!), but I still love to check out new bookstores when I’m visiting a city.

I’m keeping this at a top 5 for today because I’m not aware of 10 different specific bookstores I’d like to visit, but hoping to find new ones in other bloggers’ posts!

  1. The Mysterious Bookshop in NYC – I’m all about thriller/mystery books and I’ve never actually been to a genre-themed bookstore before so this seems fun!
  2. The Last Bookstore in L.A. – You’ve probably seen pictures of their labyrinth of bookshelves and book arches. I would definitely pay a visit if I was in the area.
  3. Livraria Lello in Portugal – The architecture of this bookstore is stunning! You even have to have a ticket to visit.
  4. Shakespeare and Company in Paris – This bookstore has always seemed so cute and idyllic to me. It was also the first book to publish Joyce’s Ulysses in full!
  5. Chongqing Zhongshuge in China – This is the bookstore featured in the photo in today’s entry I really love the design of this place and it’s 36,000 square feet!!

Have you visited any of the bookstores on my list? Are there any you would be interested in?
