Magical Literary Destinations

Why, hello!

It is Monday, and yes, I am posting.

One of my goals for the month of March is to blog not once, but twice a week! Monday posts will feature short, fun tidbits to be found around the internet (blog recommendations, photos, videos, etc.), for just a moment of inspiration, thought provocation, discussion, or a good laugh. Fridays will continue to be the article-style reflections to which you've become accustomed around here. I hope you'll feel free to comment on those, too--even if it's to play devil's advocate or argue the other side!

Today I would like to send the bibliophile in you on a trip to the 20 most beautiful bookstores in the world (click on the link to see the article).

This article gave me a terrible, wonderful case of the sighs and almost made me start hunting for international plane tickets.

As long as there are magical places like these, I don't think e-books will ever entirely dominate the world. 

Do you? 


  1. Looking at those pictures makes me want to find a nice corner in any one of those libraries and spend the day :)

  2. ...or the rest of my life :) Thanks for stopping by, Marcy!

    1. I know, right?! The one with the floating candles made me think of you :) Can I just drag in a sleeping bag and move in?

  4. No~ Thank God! My daughter, the librarian certainly hopes not!

  5. In that case, your daughter and I have something in common :) I did recently find out, though, that my library is starting an e-book loan program. Now you can check out digital books! How cool!
