Books in Rome

Yes, it’s true, I have neglected you! But I’ve been to Italy! Such a fabulous holiday – albeit, a little hot for someone who lives in Atlantic Canada where 20 degrees Celsius is considered a warm summer day!

Our trip consisted of time spent in Venice, Florence, Cortona and Rome. It was in Rome where I started noticing bookshops and stalls everywhere and I snapped a few pictures. What was especially interesting was that some of these little shops were down narrow alleys and I wondered how they managed to stay open. I understand that Rome is a huge city, but clearly populated by readers.

I wish I lived in a place that supported independent book stores. I’m as guilty of buying my books from the big box stores and online as the next guy – but there is something very special about the kind of shops I saw in Rome.

    Much better than photographs of cathedrals, statues, and bridges (ho-hum). Well done!
