Bookshop Towns

Did you know Ireland has its own second bookshop town? Graiguenamanagh in Co Kilkenny. The annual event is slowly expanding. This year the weekend is Friday September 15th and Saturday 16th.

I've also been to Hay-on-Wye which is amazing. Directions in this town go something like this. It's in the bookshop that's round the corner from the bookshop, across the street from the bookshop that's opposite the castle. I'd love to go to the book festival there on every May. They have a great selection of Author events.

There are lots of bookshop towns internationally.

Scotland's is in Wigtown.
I also visited Fjaerland in Norway. A beautiful place on the Sognefjord.
