Bookstores

Like many of you I love bookstores. I’ve never been able to walk past one without stopping. I love the smell when you walk in…all that paper and binding. Here I am getting my book geek on in a few different places.

Since I have been fortunate (thanks to all of you readers) to have had my books published all over the world I think I could fill a wall with just copies of my own books. How cool would that be?

This is Blackwell’s in Oxford. It’s one of the largest bookstores I’ve ever been in. There were five floors of books. I spent hours in there. Luckily there was a cafe in there so I could keep my energy up. 🙂

Tell me about your best book experience.
