Frequent visitors to this blog will know my penchant for visiting book stores in far flung places and writing about them here. But occasionally I like to showcase some of the more interesting shops in London, and for that reason I visited Belgravia Books, a longish stroll from Hyde Park Corner, for a bit of a look around today.
Let me share this blog's posting about a bookshop in London.I have not been here yet but I have been to a few to Books Etc, Blackwell, Foyle and others.The Blackwell of Oxford really shocked me with three miles of bookshelves!
During my travels,two places I will always look:cafes and bookshop.The first time I saw a bookshop with a cafe built-in was when I visited Melbourne some time in early 90's.Now bookcafes are every where..
When my wife and me go shopping at shopping complexes,and if she could not find me or lost me and could not contact me via mobile phone,she will know where to go and look for me.Most likely she will find me in the bookshop.Below is a photo of me when I got lost among 100,000 books in a bookshop in Wales..
By the way,what is your best bookshop and which one do you visit every week or every month?
Below is my photo with George taken by Awang Goneng when we were visiting Paris many,many moons back....
