10 Beautiful Bookshops That Will Stop You in Your Tracks

10 Beautiful Bookshops That Will Stop You in Your Tracks.

Capitol Hill BooksWhat is a road trip without a stop at some local bookstores?! While on a day trip to Shipshewana, In yesterday my wife and I did take in a few, including a Thrift store, where I found a few cheap treasures.

The ones we visited yesterday were not nearly as beautiful as those from around the world featured in this post from Abe Books, but that’s ok. Most any bookstore fills me with joy and satisfaction. 🙂

But, if you were to plan (or dream!) a special road trip, be sure to take in these bookstores from Seattle to London. Enjoy your trip!

A bibliophile cannot walk past a bookshop without slowing their step. We will linger at the window, gazing through the glass at stacks of books we have not yet read. We hover, telling ourselves we must read the pile on the nightstand before buying another. But we can’t resist the lure. Before long, we open the door, sounding the tiny bell that rouses the shop cat. We’re in, and we’re going to be a while.

The only thing that tops a bookstore full of amazing books, is a beautiful bookstore full of amazing books – a bookstore so charming not even a TV-addict can resist it. Many stunning bookstores list their books for sale on the AbeBooks marketplace, so we rounded up a few of the most alluring storefronts from Paris to Boston and everywhere in between. Even those immune to the magnetic pull of the smell of old books will stop dead in their tracks at the sight of these pretty AbeBooks bookstores, so before you step inside to bury your nose in a book, take a moment to enjoy the view from outside.
