Karen’s Top Ten Bookshops!

Carlos Ruiz Zafón wrote that “Every book…has a soul. The soul of the person who wrote it and of those who read it and lived and dreamed with it. Every time a book changes hands, every time someone runs his eyes down its pages, its spirit grows and strengthens.” Perhaps this is why I am so enchanted by local bookshops when visiting a new place; a book may be the perfect souvenir ~ a sliver of the city’s soul.
