Badass Bookstores

I don’t know about you but there’s nothing better than curling up in a cozy bookstore in a foreign city. If I’m feeling homesick or lonely or lost, a bookstore brings me right back to a place of familiarity. No matter the differences, every culture seems to have their own appreciation for floor-to-ceiling bookshelves and coffee scented reading nooks.

Check out some of my favorite purveyors of stories, ideas, and paperback inspiration.
