Places I've Visited Because of Books



Places I've Visited Because of Books


The search for books has sent me many places.

The Strand in NYC.


Powell's Books in Portland, Oregon.

City Lights Bookstore in San Francisco.


Sandmeyer's in Chicago.


Ocotillo Books and Rocks in West Texas.


Strange Maine in Portland, Maine.


Shakespeare and Company in Paris.


You can find books wherever you go these days.


Even though I don't really have to leave home to find books any more,
I still love visiting all these wonderful bookstores.



What did I forget? Any suggestions for me?


Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list that one of our bloggers at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.

  5. I am SO jealous that you've been to Shakespeare and Co. Oh my gosh. I've wanted to visit that bookstore for years. That's awesome!

    1. Shakespeare and Co. is just as casual as you might think from the photos you see. Piles of books everywhere. And the occasional person sleeping over.

  9. I walked past Shakespeare and Co on Saturday. Actually I've walked past many times- but can you believe it that I've never made it inside! I must rectify that this visit... And I should go to a French library! I've always meant to do that, but haven't as yet.
