Book Towns collects, as the name would suggest, Book Towns from all over the world. It was an interesting little book for those of us who breathe books, so to speak. I couldn’t help but be attracted to them and have added several (in Belgium and The Netherlands) that I would like to visit this summer. Others I would like to visit in the future.
Every town is featured with a story, and several pictures as well as some information. While in general this was really nice, it felt like some of the Book Towns didn’t have enough information to really fill the pages. Also, it became repetitive a bit, as most book towns were generated from a Marketing/Tourism point of view and the story was often the same. Also also, it was sad to read that quite a few of them were way past their heyday.
Still a nice read for book lovers.
Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!
