The 20 Most Beautiful Bookstores in the World

As you all know, I am a huge bookworm, and it is one of my constant delights to visit bookstores and breathe the wonderful scent of paper in the air.  It's amazing how something simple like a book can bring so much joy.

My mom happened to come across this link while she was surfing the net.  She showed it to me and I was completely awestruck. Behold, the 20 most beautiful bookstores in the world!  Okay, something new to add to my bucket list!  Visit all these bookstores!  I especially love these among the 20: 

  • The Selexyz Bookstore in Maastricht, Holland.  It used to be an old Dominican church now converted to a beautiful haven of reading!

  • The Book├ábar Bookshop in Rome, Italy.  Its modern design is lovely!

  • The Plural Bookshop in Rome, Italy.

  • Popular Kids' Republic in Beijing, China.  Is there a better way to spell awesomeness?!

  •  Cook & Book in Brussels, Belgium.
