Last summer we drove around England. On the way we encountered this little booktown - Hay-on-Wye. Wherever you turned you found yourself on the doorstep of a shop filled with books of all kinds. You even found books outside up stairs and in backyards. It was an amazing experience! I definitely have to go back.
Hay-on-Wye hosts a big literature festival each year. It is so popular that I was told you had to book your accomodation a really long time in advance. Like, a really long time. I am thinking it would be worth it, though, just to be there and meet all the book enthusiasts that surely find their way there. Imagine the fun!
One of the many books I picked up was this:
