Beautiful and unusual bookshops from around the world

There's something very unique about the appeal of a bookshop that a Kindle could never match.

Whether it's the woody smell of second-hand reads or the joy of discovering a hidden gem, a good bookstore emanates the magic of a serene, relaxed haven of treasures.

In The Bookshop Book, author Jen Campbell takes a look inside some of the globe's most unusual reading retreats in "a love letter to bookshops all around the world" - we've picked out some highlights. 

Join us as we take a tour of some of the world's finest literary hideouts, from a mountainous book town in Norway to a book barge that chugs along the inland rivers of England and the independent Singing Wind store based on a cattle ranch in Arizona.
