  1. This is an excellent list! I’d like to go on this worldwide bookshop tour as well please and thank you! In fact, I’d happily settle for just the UK locations. I forgot about Mr. B’s Emporium when I made my list, so thanks for the reminder. Their reading subscription service sounds like so much fun!
