Top 10 Tuesday: Bookstores and Libraries

Welcome back to Top 10 Tuesday hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl! This week’s topic is  Bookstores/Libraries I’ve Always Wanted to Visit. Such a fun, bookish, nerdy topic! Seriously, I had so much fun putting this list together. These are some of the most beautiful bookish places I have ever seen. Hope to visit them all one day.

For the sake of time, I just include names and pictures. Because I would say basically the same thing over and over: “This is amazing! I want to go here so bad!” Haha. So just enjoy the pictures and make a bucket list of bookish places to visit. I hope you enjoy my list!

Shakespeare and Co – Paris, France

Libreria Acqua Alta – Venice, Italy

Powell’s – Portland, Oregon

BookCourt – Brooklyn, New York

Honesty Bookshop – Hay-on-Wye, Wales

The Admont Library – Admont, Austria

George Peabody Library- Baltimore, Maryland

Boston Public Library – Boston, Massachusetts

Trinity College Dublin Library – Dublin, Ireland

Royal Portuguese Reading Room- Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

And a few of my favorite libraries that I have visited (and love!):

Bodleian Library – Oxford, England
Between the Harry Potter film locations and the incredible scope and age of this library, it’s a must see!

British Library – London, England
So many incredible literary artifacts like Jane Austen’s writing desk, a copy of Handel’s Messiah, early Bibles, and Shakespeare folios.

Lots of great bookstores and libraries here and here.

What are your top must see libraries and bookstores?

  1. What a fun twist on this week’s TTT! I like the idea of bookish places to visit. 🙂 Bookstores and libraries are always on my travel itineraries. I love seeing the architecture and designs for these buildings. The honesty Bookshop is definitely one I’m adding to my own travel bucket list! XD

  2. Jackie put that Baltimore library on her list and it looks so lovely. I’d love to visit. I’ve been to Powell’s and it’s really cool! I tell you what’s a neat library – the main Reference one in Toronto. Last fall when we traveled there we had to visit the library. It’s got a really cool interior – you should Google it.
