European Bookstore Guide
The allure of the out-of-town bookstore has been written about before, and I'm sure many travelers would agree with this sentiment. I've spent many hours on several continents idling in a variety of bookshops, especially English-language ones, which can offer precious familiarity and comfort during long stretches of time in places far from home. My favorite so far? Still has to be Massolit in Krakow, which is actually run by an American from New Jersey.
But now, thanks to Sonja and Ivan (creators of the new guide) we've all got a new and expanding list of shops to refer to on future European book-buying (or browsing) excursions.
