Daunt Books. I’m already planning my return.
In a perfect world, I would spend at least a half a day there and bring an empty suitcase.
Daunt Books is a traveler’s paradise, whether you’re planning to go somewhere or just want to learn more about a far off place.
When I’m planning a trip, I want to learn everything I can (not just what’s shared in a guidebook). I want to read books that take place in that place. I always find it difficult to search for those, especially online.
At Daunt everything is arranged by geography.
Get that? It means that I found a guidebook on visiting Russia right next to a copy of War and Peace. And I almost fainted. Not really. Almost.
I never thought there would be a place that arranged books the way I wanted to see them. I started thinking about all the trips we’ve planned (and the ones we’re just dreaming about) and considered buying all. the. books.
They have cards too! And a few other little items that make crafty folks and letter writers happy.
Daunt Books, we will meet again!
If You Go
I traveled solo to London for the month of April on a business trip and kept myself entertained on the weekends exploring new places.
