London: Daunt Books

Daunt Books London by Natalie Parker

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.

I traveled solo to London for the month of April on a business trip and kept myself entertained on the weekends exploring new places.
