Destinations for the Traveling Bibliophile

Most booklovers enjoy browsing in second-hand bookstores. And a special treat for booklovers on vacation is finding a really good  bookstore to while away a few hours (and, often, to happily part with quite a few of one’s vacation dollars). 

Did you know there are several dozen towns across the globe that have been designated as “book towns”?

You can find out where these towns are and what they offer the bibliophilic tourist at the Wikipedia article on book towns. And there are links to more information on book town tourism at The Private Library, where we found the photo above of one of those towns: Montereggio, Italy.
