Hay-on-Wye is a small market town in Powys, Wales known as “ The town of bookshops.”
It’s got some of the most charming bookshops in the world and it’s the world’s largest second-hand and antiquarian book centre.

Whenever I buy a new book I just want to show it off to the whole world. Look how pretty my paper package of pain and tears is. So shiny.

«I created this bookstore like a man would write a novel, building each room like a chapter, and I like people to open the door the way they open a book, a book that leads into a magic world in their imaginations.» —George Whitman

One of my favorite places in Paris, it’s magical.
