Paradise Found: Eight Blissful Spots to Read around the World
Want to dive into a book far from the madding crowds? Bibliophiles share their reading spots of choice in eight cities.
“I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library,” said Argentine writer Jorge Luis Borges. And anyone who has been to the New York Public Library’s gilded and frescoed Rose Main Reading Room would agree. But not every literary elysium needs to be grand and lined with dusty tomes. Few things nourish the soul as much as losing yourself in a book in an unfamiliar but cozy bookshop, for example, or on a park bench overlooking the ocean, yachts bobbing in the distance. When better to immerse yourself between the pages of a book than while traveling.
In honor of Global Literacy Month, and Rosewood’s partnership with literacy organization Room to Read, we asked a few of our favorite book lovers for their preferred rooms to read, library or otherwise.
