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.
The Harper Collins UK office. I am trying to convince my husband that we need a wall like this in our home. I don’t know if it would be a good weight baring wall but I live it. 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. 🙂
This last picture is of me in front of the British Library. I was very excited to get a library card here and am looking forward to requesting some very old books. I can’t wait to read them and then to think about the other people who have read them over the centuries.
Tell me about your best book experience.
