How pretty are these bookstores? These are a few of the bookstores listed in Flavorwire's 20 most beautiful bookstores in the world. It makes me want to visit every single one of them. I've only been to one - Shakespeare & Company, which I found to be quirky and adorable.
Every since I was a little, I've developed a great love of books. Every weekend I would beg my parents to take me to a bookstore or library just so I could surround myself with books and read to my heart's content. It was a place for me to explore and set my imagination free. But with the emergence of internet, ebooks and electronics such as iPad and kindle, I realised I haven't spend time in a bookstore lately. This definitely needs to be rectified.
