Amazon.com may have the entire book industry in the palm of its hand, but there’s one thing it doesn’t have: ambiance.

From the original Flavorwire article:

…why would anyone leave the comfort of their couch to buy a book when with just a click of a button, they could have it delivered to their door? Well, here’s why: bookstores so beautiful they’re worth getting out of the house (or the country) to visit whether you need a new hardcover or not.

Waldenbooks

Coming soon: Starbucks.

Bonus: 20 more AMAZING book stores.
