We went to Liverpool with friends to see Hans Zimmer in concert (if you haven’t heard of him, you definitely know his film scores) on a beautiful June weekend.
If you haven’t been to Liverpool before, then cast aside any preconceptions – the city is amazing. It’s a fantastic mix of old and new architecture – modern glass buildings sit quite happily side-by-side with buildings over 200 years old. If you like a bar then you need to visit the Philharmonic Dining Rooms.
Waterstones, which resembles a ship at the rear of the building, sits in the heart of the Liverpool One retail centre…
I really liked this branch. Unfortunately I didn’t have as much time in there as I’d have liked. I will just have to go back!
Still reading The Mill on the Floss by George Eliot.
My first Waterstones in this quest (naturally I have been to many other branches before) was Bridport. I went with my husband, Peter – who fortunately is happy to humour me and my weird book obsessions! It was my first visit to this particular branch on a lovely sunny day and we enjoyed exploring the town. I didn’t buy any books here!
There are a number of other book shops in the town too, including the imaginatively entitled The Book Shop, Bridport Old Books and Wild and Homeless Books (now *that* is a great name for a book shop!).
Here it is…
At the time of my visit I was reading The Mill on the Floss by George Eliot (that took me until 1st July to finish) 3½/5 and listening to the audio version of The Call of the Wild by Jack London, also 3½/5.
After leaving here we drove to Lyme Regis, where I bought a book in The Sanctuary Bookshop! Happy days.
