Whenever I go travelling, I make it a point to hit the best bookshops in town. It would be great to see the best places where you guys live!
I'll start with my favourite: the Voltaire & Rousseau Bookshop in Glasgow, Scotland. When you walk into the shop, which is situated in a well-hidden lane, there's an entire room full of books for £1 ($1.55 USD), which can threaten to consume you in deal-finding bliss... until you step into the main shop. Which... well, I think these pictures speak for themselves:
The books are stacked high like this, largely disorganised except by loose genre, and the stacks often fall as people hunt for the best deal. All the books are cheap or competitively priced as well. The owners don't even own an electronic till, they just mark down sales in a large notebook. But the real clincher, especially for a cat lover like me, is this:
BOOK SHOP KITTY!
Show off your favourites, Bombers!
