Waterstones Piccadilly

This is probably my favorite bookstore in the world! There might be ones which are a little bit bigger or with more books, but I have a personel attachment to this bookstores and I have spent hours upon hours in this bookstore over the years. It is 5 floors of books, books, and more books! You can always find something to read or something new and interesting! I never thought that I would like one speicific Genre or another, but I was surprised as to what I liked from the selection of recommended books! I have even bought kid books because I liked the story so much and not finding out it was kids books until later! I didn’t even care, I was really happy that I was entertained by the book and I bought the rest of the trilogy. I have a few authors that I keep buying their books like Dean Koontz, Trudi Canavan, Dan Simmons, Max Barry, and Joshua Mowll. There other authors that I check up on every once in a while, but I always am open to a good story. When I’m walking around looking at the shelves I always feel like I could find a gem of a book in between all these shelves and once I find it, it is the best feeling in the world! You just keep reading that book, not wanting to go to sleep or the story to finish! I find it frustrating when I finish a good book because its hard to replace! Maybe Im jumping into this too much, but its something to experience! They also have my favorite notepads here which is the Moleskine notepads, they are the best ot right in and I always have one with me in a meeting or carrying it under the seat of my bike. There is something for everyone in this bookstore, I could spend days in there because there are couchs available on the other floors! Just as long as nobody has taken them!

    abbbiiiiii.. all we have in Kuwait is The Family Bookshop which is as old as (insert very old thing)… the bookshop downstairs in AlMuthana complex.. which is also as old as (another old thing) AND it has school books, and i want to be as far away from those as possible! We also have VIRGIN and Jareer, but they’re not as big as i want them to be… We have some “Used Books” places, but i prefer my books new and shiny…

    i want a five storey bookshop with couches and bike notebooks too :(

  2. That was one long post, i have a feeling being around books inspired you to write a little more … but i appreciate your pictures :)

    P.S. i never got to the end of this post i think i only went as far as line 7

  3. maybe they’ll have one in The Avenues.

  4. Waterstones and Books etc. bought most of the book stores in London and did a good deal with them, Waterstones is my no.1 visit whenever going to London, it definitely is a great place to spend time in.

    Magroudy’s bookshop in Dubai is a good bookstore chain as well; not as good as Waterstones yet fairly good compared with others in the region.

  5. Swair: I wish they would allow all books in Kuwait! I would be all over the place! Nonstop book buying! How cool is that!

    Laialy: hahahaha! Sorry I got carried away! But I appreciate your honesty!

    Pearls: I doubt it, but lets hope! hehehe

    True Faith: thats pretty good, I will check out Magroudy’s when I go to Dubai, but yeah Waterstones have everything covered when it comes to books!

  6. Books Books Booooooooks! More Boooks!
