Warren | 1556 comments I'm partial to musty old book stores with hard to find used paperbacks. That doesn't prevent me from appreciating some of the nicer places.

Flavorwire's most beautiful book store in the world.

Ryan Curtis (kingtriton92) | 62 comments I am adding a visit to at least 5 of these book stores to my bucket list.

Paul  Perry (pezski) | 491 comments Some of these are awesome. Noticeable that they tend to be in non-English speaking countries, I wonder if that's relevant?

I've seen a few of these working my way through the archives of bookporn on tumblr:

Catelijne | 11 comments I've actually visited four of these stores.. I didn't even know about this list. :) The one in Paris is really great! (I'm standing in front of this store in my profile picture)


Ruth (tilltab) Ashworth | 1897 comments Oooooh, some of those are really great! I want to build the 4th one in my 'when I am a gazillionaire I will build this and it will be awesome' house! :D

It isn't a book store, but I think the library here at Akita International University where I'm currently studying is beautiful.

Felina I really loved the one with the books on the ceiling. Like being totally surrounded by books. Some of the architecture on those are beautiful. But I prefer the smaller closed in stores.

Brad | 21 comments The bookstore in Paris looks fantastic. I must visit there some day!

The most unique bookstore I've been to was Libreria Puro Verso in Montevideo, Uruguay. It has a large, lovely stained glass window and beautiful architecture.
