I Absolutely Love Bookstores

Whenever I'm in a new city I love to check out the local bookstores for the simple reason that I absolutely love bookstores. So today I braved the freezing Canadian weather (that's what it looked like yesterday in Victoria) to explore the city, and obviously see the bookstores. 



This is Russell Books, which sells rare, used and out-of-print books. Absolutely beautiful - floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall books.







This is Munro Books, which is simply magnificent.







And even better I got this, and it came with a free bookmark :D. It's the simple things that make me smile.

  3. Absolutely amazing but also absolutely freezing. The bookstores were gorgeous and I could have stayed there for hours.
