Top Ten Tuesday: Beautiful Bookstores and Libraries Around the World

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 of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. How it works is that each Tuesday the host assigns a topic and then posts their top ten list that fits the topic. Every blogger can create their own top ten (or 2, 5, 20, etc.) list as well and link to the host’s. The topic for October 16th, 2018 is: Bookstores/Libraries I’ve Always Wanted to Visit. Being an Indian bookworm, it’s tough to come across libraries that house the kind of books I want to read. While I’ve given up on finding one that will cater to all my needs, there are a few magical places around the world I want to visit just for the sheer beauty of their bookshelves or decor. In this list I’ve curated, there are 5 bookstores and 5 libraries, with no two being in the same continent. I really hope this list inspires some of you to travel to these gorgeous destinations!

Every blogger can create their own top ten (or 2, 5, 20, etc.) list as well and link to the host’s. The topic for October 2nd, 2018 is: Authors I’d Love to Meet. I’m sure it’s every reader’s dream to have the opportunity to meet their literary idols at least once in their lifetime. As I’m living in India, I don’t get the privilege of doing so at book conventions, meet-ups, release parties or signings. However, I have quite an active imagination, so I’ve compiled a list of things to (never ever) do when you do get the chance to meet your favourite authors.

I’m very guilty of not reading outside of a few books that I love by the lovely humans I consider my favourite writers. Without trying to make any excuses for this unacceptable bookworm behaviour, let me show you my list.

Instead of making this a recommendations post, I decided to talk about the TV shows I want to watch that also happen to be adapted from books.

For this list I’ve chosen the books that are light-hearted, quick reads from a variety of genres, so this works as a recommendations post more than books that have worked for me personally. This list is also great if you’re a beginner and need some general book recommendations that are easy to read. I’ve read and enjoyed all of them, so I hope you do as well!
