Nature & Books belong to the eyes that see them.
It always feels like I'm Alice in Wonderland when I'm in a country where English isn't everywhere. There is something surreal about seeing words that I can't understand. I count on words.Here's my Wordless Wednesday.
I was surprised that it was so easy to communicate with the locals when we were in Germany. Of course, the bookstores were another story. Only a small section of English translations. But I liked the size of their books. Smaller than a traditional trade paperback, but larger than a mass market.
this is heaven... I would like to visit every bookstore in the U.S. and then start overseas! Especially in Paris...Linda in VA
Linda, it was heaven! I'd go back in a heartbeat. Such a great trip!!
Still my favorite German town!
This was actually more than one town, Mom. I should go back and label all the different locations...
Fun to see the overseas book covers.
I thought so too, Colleen. It was fun to see what was on their bestseller lists, too.
Hugendubel is one of my favorite bookstores in Germany. Loved these pics!
Iliana, I kind of thought you'd enjoy these particular photos. More to come... maybe! It's almost been a year!! Yikes!
That store looks so inviting. When we lived in France, I didn't pay attention to the foreign book jackets like that - I headed straight to the small English section.
Kathy, it was such a comfortable store. And you know what? No loud music. Actually, most of the bookstores I went in didn't have any music playing at all. Very quiet, but peaceful. I wish we could do more of that in the States...
Very cool. We enjoyed going in the Japanese bookstores, when possible, even though their English section was slim pickin's. It's fun to see how different the covers are in another country.
Nancy, it was so cool to visit all these bookstores! Slim pickins for English translations, too, but still fun to look at all their covers!
I was going to say when were you away, but then I got to the end. lol I enjoyed the pictures!
Kelly, oh I wish I could say I just got back. So hard to believe it's been almost an entire year. I'd go again in a New York minute!!
