An English Book Store in Hiroshima

I visited Outsider Global Lounge in Hiroshima in March 2014

I walked through the book store, looked at every book shelf, was quite impressed by their selection of English books, this being Japan. I have never found many books in English for sale in Japan. Here I found many interesting books, was tempted to buy a few.

Bokin in Reykjavik. A Second Hand Book Store

I visited Bokin in Reykjavik in March 2016

Bokin second-hand book store in Reykjavik is my kind of book store. The whole space is crammed full of books. The bookshelves are overflowing, books are piled on the floor, on the counter. A huge pile of books lie in front of the cashier. The books at the bottom can’t have been touched by human hands for years. The whole store has that old-book-smell. The smell is really strong here, there are so many old books. My only regret is that the best selection is in Icelandic.

Evenaar Travel Book Store in Amsterdam

I visited Evenaar Travel Book Store in Amsterdam in May 2015

Whenever I am in Amsterdam, I always visit Evenaar, a wonderful travel book shop just next to Spui. It has a great selection in travel literature, and a very helpful staff. The whole store filled with travel books, from floor to ceiling, and all books arranged by country. Maybe not as beautiful as Daunt Books in London, but still a book store I love.

Jimbocho, Tokyo. Booklover’s Heaven

I visited Jimbocho in Tokyo in July, 2015

I have always loved books, always been an avid reader. My love goes back to when I was a child, when my mum would use to read to me before I went to bed. As I have grown older my love for books have stayed with me, and now I always try to combine my love for books and my love for travel.
