I love books, especially books in English… A language I love, studied, and speak daily if I have company – in general, conversation will be in English –
One has to travel miles to find a decent bookstore, if not hundreds of miles…We all know and order from that famous giant mail-order business. Having a book to examine in your hands, smell of ink, that close relationship with a book can only be realized in a bookstore… A place I love to be inside in second to a library…
While visiting London recently I went to a one called Waterstones.
I loved the store, had the pleasure of feeling at home with the books all around me, smelling also fresh flowers on the tables. To rest you have 5th floor for cocktails or just a delicious fresh mint tea. A heaven in Piccadilly!!!
Waterstones, formerly Waterstone’s, is a British book retailer that operates 275 stores and employs around 3,500 staff in the UK and Europe as of February 2014.
