Top Ten Tuesday (originally created by The Broke and the Bookish) is hosted by Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl
I’ve done a similar post series that just focused on the amazing bookstores you can visit in the US and around the world (follows the links to read part 1, part 2, and part 3). This post, however, will be about general literary destinations that apparently any book lover must visit.
I’ve actually had this post sitting in my drafts for quite some time yet never finished it. This week’s Top Ten Tuesday seemed the perfect prompt to finally publish this post.
I’m sure that there are plenty more places that will end up on my list in the future, but for now, this is my list!
Shakespeare and Co. Bookstore – Paris, France
Hay Castle Bookshop, Hay-on-Wye, UK
The Library Hotel, NYC
The Globe, London
The Sherlock Holmes Museum, London
Ashdown Forest (where AA Milne’s Christopher Robin played), UK
The Elephant House, Edinburgh, Scotland
Borgo Pass/ Hotel Dracula, Romania
Hobbiton, New Zealand
The Bookstore and Get Lit Wine Bar, Lenox, MA
I wish I had known about the places in NYC and London (okay I knew about the Globe), though I wish I knew that these were places that I should take time to go see. I suppose that means that I just have to travel back there again.
Have you been to any of these places? Which ones do you want to visit?
