top ten bookstores i’d like to visit
posted by soe 3:03 am

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday topic asked which Bookstores/Libraries I’ve Always Wanted To Visit (in no particular order):

  1. Shakespeare & Co. in Paris (France’s most famous English-language bookstore)
  2. The Book Barn in Niantic, Connecticut (I’ve driven past this used bookstore many times over the years, but somehow never stopped in. I have been to a different, unrelated used Book Barn in Amity, which may explain the oversight.)
  3. Bart’s Books in Ojai, California (it’s mostly outside)
  4. Wild Rumpus in Minneapolis (a kids’ bookstore)
  5. Kitchen Arts & Letters (NYC cookbook shop)
  6. John K. King Used & Rare Books in Detroit
  7. Left Bank Books in St. Louis
  8. The Last Bookstore in L.A. (it looks like a museum)
  9. Murder by the Book in Houston (mysteries!)
  10. Parnassus Bookshop in Nashville (one of the more famous indies, because it’s co-owned by Ann Patchett)
