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!
