JUANITA NG of the VANCOUVER SUN has assembled 20 photos of the world’s coolest bookstores. Some day I’ll travel to Porto, Portugal just to see the Livraria Lello bookstore that you see in this entry!

Have your students scroll through the photographs and decide which bookstore’s design they like the best and say why.

If you were designing a bookstore (with an unlimited budget of course) what features would you include? What kind of customers would you like to attract? What kinds of books would be in your store? How would the architecture of your store reflect the kind of books you are intending to sell?
