Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, totally worn out and screaming,
"WOO HOO, what a ride!"

Love these bookstores!

In March, I posted a link to some amazing "reused libraries".  Today I saw photos of buildings for books that are even more impressive! Shelf Awareness Pro (9/13/12) has a terrific link to a Flavorwire article "10 awesome bookstores repurposed from unused structures". Here are a few examples but go check out the rest! I want to visit them ALL!!

Two views of Librería El Ateneo Grand Splendid, a converted 1920's movie palace in Argentina.
Two views of Barter Books in Alnwick, UK, that was converted from an old Victorian-era railway station and maintained the train theme.
