Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It’s all about love of lists, love of literature and bringing bookish people together.
This week it’s all about beautiful bookstores or libraries that we’d like to visit. I’m not blessed with many good bookstores or libraries in my area, so I was super excited to research these stores!
Word On The Water, London, UK
I’m not fussy about books near water, so the idea of a store on the water doesn’t scare me. It’s a 1920s Dutch barge. A floating bookshop!
Scarthin Books, Peak District- UK
This has a mixture of new and old books. I love that it has a vegetarian cafe! 🙂
El Ateneo bookshop-Buenos Aires, Argentina
How beautiful is this? Converted from a theatre. I think it looks stunning.
The Last Bookstore- Los Angeles, California
I just think this looks pretty! I’d take some beautiful pictures here.
Livraria Lello & Irmão, Porto, Portugal
I think I’m obsessed with pretty looking bookstores.
The Maughan, London, UK
This library looks stunning! I read that the round reading room was turned into Dumbledore’s office!
Liverpool Central Library, UK
I love those spiral stairs!
Library of Birmingham, UK
This library has a stack of blocks that light up! It sounds really lovely.
Codrington Library, Oxford, UK
I doubt I’d ever get to visit this as you have to be a member of Oxford University or a very established researcher. It looks stunning though.
John Ryland’s Library, Manchester, UK
This is another one that looks amazing. Pictured here is the reading room!
I took inspiration (and pictures) from these sites here:
