Books have something clandestine about them and not everyone can understand it. Like there are pet lovers, food lovers, and beauty lovers, there are book lovers who want and expect nothing from the world. Just give them a nook loaded with books and you’ll never hear a word from them again.
A bibliophile has a thing for bookstores. Searching for a book, walking around the aisles in the deafening silence and feeling ecstatic when you finally reach to that one book you were looking for has a different emotion altogether. So, here are some breathtakingly beautiful bookstores around the world.
El Ateneo, Buenos Aires- Argentina
El Ateneo was established in 1919 as a theatre called Treto Grand Splendid. Later in February 2000, it was repurposed into a bookstore. With ceiling art painted by Italian artist Nazareno Orlandi, it was once described as the second most beautiful bookstore in the world.
Kids Republic- Beijing
This bookstore in Beijing would make you want to be a kid again. It is China’s first bookstore which is entirely dedicated to children books. Kids Republic has the most colourful interior, story books, tunnels, and a series of pathways.
