Beautiful bookstores around the world

My mother ran a bookstore for more than ten years. Ever since I was in elementary school, I had to clerk in our bookstore when Mom was busy doing household chores or delivering stationery to nearby offices or companies. I used to grab a Sherlock Holmes or a fairy tale book when I was taking care of the business. However, it sometimes turned out to be a loss of money for Mom because I would get so obsessed with what I was reading and overlook the sneaky shoplifters. My grandpa said that I was the worst clerk he had ever seen. Our bookstore was closed in my college’s sophomore year due to the blooming of the large bookstore chains. Over the years, somehow I am used to be surrounded by books, and my room is also filled up with the books I treasured.

Last Saturday my husband and I went to Eslite ( 誠品 ) and I noticed a book entitled, The 20 Most Beautiful Bookstores in the World. Instead of paying 500 dollars to buy one, I found some great pictures and introductions on the web. I was thrilled to see VVG Something, a renowned bookstore in Taipei, was also on this dream list.
