With Amazon slowly taking over the publishing world and bookstores closing left and right, things cansometimes seem a little grim for the brick and mortar booksellers of the world. After all, why would anyoneleave the comfort of their couch to buy a book when with just a click of a button, they could have it delivered
to their door? Well, here’s why: bookstores so beautiful they’re worth getting out of the house (or the country)to visit whether you need a new hardcover or not. We can’t overestimate the i
mportance of bookstores
 
they’re community centers, places to browse and discover, and monuments to literature all at once —
 
so we’ve
put together a list of the most beautiful bookstores in the world, from Belgium to Japan to Slovakia. Just soyou know no
w, all you bookstore fiends: neither the Strand nor Powell’s is on this list. They’re both great
 bookstores, of course, but not particularly pretty (at least in our minds), and thus disqualified. Click throughto see our picks for the most beautiful bookst
ores in the world, and as always, if we’ve left off your favorite, be
sure to add to the collection in the comments!
