The Coziest Bookstores Around The World
Updated in 2023! These snug bookstores are well worth travelling to! Discover more than 30 of the world's cutest, coziest bookstores.
This may just be my favourite post yet!! Epic collection giving much cozy reading inspiration. Kudos TT💕
I'm so glad you enjoyed it!
Yay! This is so nice to hear!
I love this post so much and am thrilled to be a part of it! My love of books started in the bookstore my grandparents ran out of their house. The smell of books feels like home to me... Definitely cozy!!
I love that their house was also a bookstore - how wonderful!
My favs? The first one in London and the last one in Paris. Defines cozy bookstores.....
And London and Paris are the backdrop for so many great novels too -definitely literary gems.
I want to visit each one of these bookstores. I have to add one to the list - Atlantis Books in Oia,Santorini, Greece. Two traveling guys noticed there was no bookshop on the island, so over wine, they decided to open one! Escape the throngs of tourists and the hustle and bustle of this non stop tourist spot and revel in the tree hut like wonder of Atlantis. Books from top to bottom, left to right line this enchanting, quiet little book nook. They offer literature in English, French, Italian, Spanish, German, Chinese, and, of course, Greek. Atlantis offers selections of poetry, philosophy, art, and all things Greek interest along with rare antiquarian books and collectors’ first editions. Open every day.
I'm SO glad you shared this suggestion. Atlantis Books - consider yourself now added to my travel list. And how awesome is it that they decided to open to store based on conversations over wine. Proof that wine makes everything better.
Also, three important additions to the cozy bookshop list:
1) Wendel's Bookstore & Cafe in Fort Langley, BC (they're teeny tiny and also have FANTASTIC brunch and coffee - http://www.wendelsonline.com/).
2) McNally Robinson in Saskatoon, SK (they've got a spiral staircase built around a tree! - https://www.mcnallyrobinson.com/home).
3) The now apparently closed Budapest branch of the Alexandra bookstore (https://welovebudapest.com/en/2017/03/03/budapests-historic-lotz-hall-cafe-suddenly-shuts-down/).
These all sound like such delightful spots! I am here for the teeny spaces and yummy brunch and funky spiral tree staircases.
Love this list! I'm adding it to my newsletter for next week. And I'm totally checking out that Montreal Spanish library the next time I go to Montreal.
I'm honored to be included! And I think your next trip to Montreal will be extra delicious if you visit the Spanish Library (they also have the most gorgeous tin jugs of imported Spanish olive oil that I always bring home with me).
