The Most Instagrammed Bookstores in the World

We are blessed with a world full of beautiful bookstores (if we have nothing else, at least we have that). Books are so loved and revered that we house them in stunning feats of architecture and among the most unique settings. Independent bookstores, in particular, have a range and a longevity that most franchised bookstores lack.

A number of these pretty, pretty bookstores have caught the eye of Instagram, which absolutely makes sense: it is a social app that focuses on photos. Book lovers (and I can say this with authority, because I am one) love taking photos of books in lovely or iconic places and visiting bookstores in general, so of course we’re going to upload those photos to IG.
