Top Ten Favorite Book-Related Places
1. Graham-Kapowsin High School Library (My library!)
|The circular part of the building is the library on the 2nd floor|
2. Puyallup Public Library
|It has really interesting architectural features inside.|
3. Pierce County Library
|This is the public library I frequent the most often.|
4. Seattle Public Library
|This thing is so cool inside and out. It makes the top ten list of the coolest libraries in the world.|
5. Suzzallo Library on University of Washington campus
|This is a gorgeous library, it is almost like a cathedral. This is where I did my training to become a librarian.|
6. Powell's Books in Portland, Oregon
|This bookstore is a destination. Once you enter you need a map to find your way around.|
7. Elliott Bay Books
I could spend a whole day browsing this Indy bookstore in Seattle.
8. Smith Family Bookstore in Eugene, Oregon
|A bit on the junky side, but really helpful clerks and one can find true treasures.|
9. King's Books in Tacoma, Washington
|They have a great selection and a bookstore cat, too.|
|Backyard. Books. Hammock. Ah..h..h|
What is one of your favorite book-related places?
powells books! I love powellsReplyDelete
What a fantastic topic and list!! Seattle Public Library always makes the cool libraries list.ReplyDelete
When I was visiting Paris with my husband, we came across this English language bookstore. It was amazing, with the nicest staff. And they had a huge collection of 80s and 90s children's books. Just fantastic.
awesome idea for a list. i definitely want to visit the suzzallo library and elliot bay is like book heaven from that picture.ReplyDelete

Elliot Bay looks like paradise! Nice choice of topic, Anne :)ReplyDelete
Fun list - I love that you included a number of libraries!!!ReplyDelete
I love your take on the list! I don't know if I'd be able to come up with ten, though, since I normally frequent the same library and same bookshop.ReplyDelete
What an awesome array of book-related places! :D I really love numbers 2, 4, and 6-9, though it makes me wish we had more Indie bookstores here. Thank you for visiting and for sharing these awesome places that I'll just have to visit one day. :)ReplyDelete
This is such a great list! My favorite reading places are under a shade tree or a cozy little bookstore!ReplyDelete
My house is one of my favorite book-related places. We have tons of floor to ceiling bookshelves. I also love Chaucer's Bookstore, our local independent shop.ReplyDelete
Great idea, Anne, and great list! Those photos of bookstores just made me drool, even though I have promised myself not to buy any more books until my TBR piles shrink significantly!ReplyDelete
Fun idea! Those libraries seriously look beautiful. I guess one of my favorite reading places is my couch. :) But someday I want to visit Powell's in Portland.ReplyDelete
I love the pictures of all the book-dedicated places! My favourite reading place is on the beach so I can jump in Lake Michigan when I get too hot. :D But one day...one day, I dream of going to Powell's. I managed to get to Shakespeare & Co - Powell's will happen!ReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by my post!
Have you ever been to The Strand in NYC, it is massive and I could spend days browsing. It's amazing! I also loved the New York Public Library, which really looks more like a musuem than a library but it is absolutely goregous!ReplyDelete
How I wish there were more cool bookish places in northern Indiana... Great choice of topic this week - I could just sit and gaze at the Suzzallo Library. Plus, one of these days I WILL visit Powell's Books!ReplyDelete
Oh! Some of those places look downright dreamy! I love reading in my front yard under my big tree, on the deck by the pool, a beach (if I can get there... i am a little far) and by the Christmas tree.ReplyDelete
