Take ten: Bookshops and Libraries I would love to visit

1. Shakespeare and Company, France
This shop in Paris is one that I have read about in several books and would love to see in person!

2. Selexyz Bookstore in Holland
This gorgeous bookstore was once a church and looks like such fun to get lost in!

3. Livraria Lello, Portugal
The staircase in this bookstore is gorgeous!

4. Powell's Books
I've actually been to their huge Portland store, but I would love to go back, since it was forever ago!

5. The Strand
You had me at three floors of books. If I make it to NYC someday, I need to go here.;)

6. Three Lives and Company
Another fun looking bookstore in NYC!

7. Library Hall, Prague
This one is seriously beautiful, and reminds me a bit of the library I picture from Beauty and the Beast.

8. The Library of Congress

9. Central Library , Canada
This one is quite neat looking!

10. A Carnegie Library
I should look more into this and see if there is one relatively close.

What libraries and bookstores are on your list?


  1. I spy a couple that made my list this week too!! YAY! Also, the idea of visiting a book shop in Paris? SO dreamy. :)

  2. I'm so intrigued about The Strand. It does look like a good one! My TTT

  3. Once when I was in the Navy we stopped in Portland for the weekend and I pretty much spent the entire day in Powell's. I never forgot about the place. I did bookish settings I'd like to visit, but I'd like to go to the Library of Congress too.

    1. I will have to look at your list!
      Portland is a fun city, though I have heard that it's changed a lot since I last went.

  4. Excellent list! Powell's Books sounds like a great place and close enough I might actually make it one day!

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thank you!

    1. Yes, most of the places I have on my list are not actually close enough...;) Maybe someday though!

  5. Amazing list of places to visit!

    Here's a link to my TTT post for this week:
