Today it’s all about books and why MacLeod’s Books is the best place ever! If you were frustrated about too much rain and desperately tried to figure out how to spend your time, then you should check out this store.
It is no ordinary book store, mind you. It is a paradise for everybody who likes reading. Not just reading; this place brings to mind nice afternoons in a cozy room, with a storm outside. You, being captivated in an imaginary place fighting dragons, falling in love with a knight or being the world’s most famous detective solving dozens of murders.
MacLeod’s Books is all that and more. I actually could move in there. Once you enter the store you can smell the books. For everybody who is not that much into books: Older and used books have a certain smell to them. And actually this smell itself already tells you a story. In the store you can see piles and piles of books. Books in shelves which are as high as the ceiling and books piled up in little corners, filling every little room available in this store. While wandering wide eyed through the room, I noticed that even though it looks quite chaotic at first, it actually is pretty well sorted. They basically have a section for everything, marked with little pieces of tape on the shelves. It goes from books about music, philosophy, language and science over books on warfare, criminal novels and love stories. Like I said before: MacLeod’s is a paradise for myself and everyone who loves to disappear into another world if the actual world is too busy or stressful or – if it is raining. And honestly, even if you do not enjoy reading as much – this store is still something to see.
